WOW! Eric Lacroix leaves the #Avs organization. I cannot believe it. I was told he would be next GM of the team in the close future.

Wouldn't be too sure of that just yet. Could be 'for now' while they evaluate everybody.

Eric's departure doesn't bode well for daddy.

This is even more shocking than Sacco being canned.

It said that he "left" though, not that he was fired.

Maybe he took it upon himself to leave a sinking ship?

Also, if he was fired, by PL (does PL fire these higher-up guys? Or is Kroenke the one?) how awkward will the next family Thanksgiving dinner be?

Not necessarily. It could mean that Eric was told he wasn't in line to be GM, and he decided to leave. Either way, it's good news, IMO.

This was purely done so that when he is hired as GM he won't be considered a hire from within the organization by its most ardent detractors.

The Avs did not say what Eric Lacroix's future plans are, but said Pierre Lacroix remains with the organization along with general manager Greg Sherman.
Why would they say it unless they knew for sure

What was Eric's job? Wasn't he assistant GM?

Because I am wondering if my source (the guy high in the Tbirds) was actually right about Roy.

Bruce Garrioch said Sherman doesn't have a contract for next season, so he may not have to be fired.

I'm extremely surprised. Almost shocked. I love it, though.

He said that he knows a few people in the Avs organization and told me that Pierre wants Patrick Roy as coach and GM. I cannot see Roy as both, but I could see Roy as coach and assistant GM.

Who is evaluating PL? The guy has no one to answer to. It's still possible he fires or re-titles Sherman, but I don't think either will be out of the organization.
