Leave the losers be

David Lochead, Ottawa

As one of the many people who predicted Chicago would win the Cup, I was euphoric when they won.

But it was hard to bare seeing Mike Richards barely avoid breaking down in an interview after the hardest game of his life.

Why must the media interview players who are in such depressing state once they leave their dressing room?

I couldn't imagine anyone who enjoyed watching such a harsh moment.

Maybe the media should wait until the losing players walk to the podium for their interview, so the rest of the world doesn't have to see classy captains like Mike Richards almost lose their composure on national television.
