Re Petrie leaves taking the high road" (Sports, June 19): I was truly sorry to see the Kings releasing Geoff Petrie from his contract.
Over the years, he has done a lot of good things for the Kings. It really wasn't until the Maloofs' money troubles started catching up to them that the Kings started tanking. He received criticism which wasn't deserved. At home games, cameras would pan over to him, and the disappointment on his face was obvious.
Maybe he should have quit to drive the point home that it was really the Maloofs who gummed things up. However, I don't think Petrie's vocabulary includes the word, quit. At least one fan that appreciated your effort over the years.
