Luongo No "C" Captaincy
Looks like the Canucks have given Mr. Luongo the "C" this year and a good choice it is, except the league won't "officially" let him wear it. Why? Short answer: The NHL is run by a bunch of robots that resemble a waking-coma patient.
Hockeytard and myself have argued over this before and I think in a drunken stupor we came to this conclusion: why in hell can't a goalie be a captain? Let the goalie argue with refs over shitty calls at center-ice. Let the goalie take ceremonial face-offs (are we afraid the Queen will be confused next time she drops a puck at GM Place?). Wouldn't you love to see Brodeur and Luongo chewing up Don Koharski's ear at the red-line? I would.
Since the NHL won't let him wear a "C" on his sweater (instead they make the team give out 3 "A"'s to skaters) I think Luongo should just get a new helmet painted with "CAPTAIN" right on the forehead. Just a thought.
NOTE: In his first practice as "captain" Luongo suffered a minor groin injury......shit, does that make Sanford the second in command? Yikes.
