Maybe he just doesn't want to hang around Winnipeg in the summer.

Go back like 20 pages there was already a discussion about Evander Kane and how he can NEVER play here based purely on personality conflicts with many current Canucks. Plus he's an asshole.

So if there's a lockout, will anyone here start following the Giants instead?

During the last lockout is when I got into Formula 1... needed something to replace it, but now I'm not sure...

I'm a big NFL fan so for me it's all football starting tomorrow. Still tho nothing beats having a shitty day at work and then coming home to watching the Canucks and being able to relax at the beginning of the season anyways.

I tried following other sports...
Just didn't work for me.
If there's no Vancouver involved,
Hard for me to care enough to follow it over a long period of time.
Actually, no canucks means I'm not watching any sports.

I've always found it sad in a way that when people can't enjoy watching other teams if "their" team isn't playing. I'm personally a hockey fan and yes it's not as exciting watching other teams but I enjoy good hockey and I don't stress about what's going to happen in the game. I just want big hits, quick play and great goals.

Nope, definitely won't be following the Giants in the event of a lockout. Will divert the time for other activities instead.

+1. Hockey fan. That being said, a NHL fan and high-level international tournaments. Watched the Canada-Russia Challenge since most of those kids are going to have great NHL careers. I don't see myself watching the dub or other minor leagues. I'll likely watch NFL, some CFL and start Breaking Bad from season 1 if the NHL doesn't start.

If there's a lockout, I'm cancelling my cable TV once the F1 season is over.

Landeskog over Duchane or Stastny as Captain..wow

Quote:
The Colorado Avalanche have made National Hockey League history.

On Tuesday, the club announced that forward Gabriel Landeskog has been named team captain. The 19-year-old becomes the youngest captain in NHL history, taking the mantle from Sidney Crosby, who was named the Penguins captain on May 31, 2007.

Landeskog takes over from Milan Hejduk who relinquished his role. Hejduk will remain an assistant captain this upcoming season along with Paul Stastny.

Landeskog becomes just the fourth captain in Colorado Avalanche history, joining Joe Sakic, Adam Foote and Hejduk.

Landeskog won the 2012 Calder Memorial Trophy as the NHL's rookie of the year, after scoring 22 goals and posting 30 assists in 82 games.

He was the second overall pick in the 2011 Entry Draft.

RT @News1130Sports: #Giants owner Ron Toigo has seen significant jump in ticket sales in last week. Local hockey fans know rogers arena will be quiet for a while.

Obviously speculating here, but this could signal Duchene not extending past 2014-15 and testing free agency as a RFA. Sacco and him seem to have different mind sets on how he should play. Sacco wants more of a two way game and defense first.

Luongo making comments to TSN for the first time that his trade preference, of course, would be to return to the Florida Panthers.

I think that the Canucks' trade leverage with Florida just went down a couple notches now that everyone knows Luongo wants to go back to the Sunshine state.

Luongo says a return to Florida 'makes sense'
