Why aren't the Avs a "1st CLASS" organization anymore?

The culture in the front office needs to change desperately. Back in the day, players would kill to come to Colorado. Now? Nope. It is no longer the "honor" to don the burgundy and blue like Lacroix made it seem back in the glory years. The "take it or leave it" mentality concerning players' contracts during negotiations needs to go away. "Oh, you don't like the offer? Well then you won't be playing for the esteemed Avalanche"
doesn't work now.
I could rant, but it's not worth wasting my energy. I'll close with this: back in the day, winning was the Avs' marketing. Today: no marketing is the team's marketing. Awesome, eh? Lacroix needs some sense smacked into him. ...or he needs to leave.
Pretty much bang on.
