Kukla's Korner Hockey

from Tony Gallagher of the Vancouver Province,
He’s said he likes being captain. If he doesn’t now, what has changed? And if nothing has changed, then is he not being pressured by the media or the club to give up his ‘C’? A ready-made excuse for a poor year.
Wouldn’t it be better if Luongo had a huge motivation to carry with him every time he woke up this season? Would it be better to have a world and Olympic champion goalie motivated to ram this captaincy controversy right up the media’s backside by winning a Cup or at least performing brilliantly while wea ring a ‘C’?
Wouldn’t trying to become the first goaltender captain in NHL history ever to win a Cup be a nice little extra goal to shoot for? Isn’t that preferable to him standing in front of the cameras and saying, “It was my decision and my decision alone to give up the captaincy.”
Nobody believes that. Why start the season with a farce nobody is buying?
