Plea to Gary Bettman

11/14/2008 at 9:38pm EST

Gary Bettman, NHL Commissioner
c/o NHL New York
1185 Avenue of the Americas
New York, NY 10036

Mr. Bettman,

More than 2,200 Vancouver Sun readers have spoken and implore you to alter National Hockey League rules to allow Vancouver Canucks goaltender Roberto Luongo to wear the ‘C’ as the team’s captain. The Canucks have named him their leader, on and off the ice, and we join fans of the team, and the league, in requesting you address this matter with the utmost urgency so he can finish the season recognized by the league as the team’s captain.

Enclosed in this package is a collection of names we received online. A reply would be appreciated as soon as possible so we can let fans know your response to this burning issue.

Thank you,
Mike Bell

Well, why not? (Wait, don’t answer that! Just be a good sport and sign…) :)

The petition—which you can add your name to here—will be presented to the NHL offices in New York on Tuesday.
