Although he cannot wear the 'C' on his jersey, Roberto Luongo has been named the captain for the Vancouver Canucks. He is the 7th goaltender in NHL history to hold this title, but the first since the 1940's. Luongo received the captaincy instead of Mattias Ohlund, Willie Mitchell, and Ryan Kesler. I think this is a good move by Alain Vigneault and the rest of the organization. Logically, Ohlund would get the 'C' because he's been around the longest. But Luongo puts that team on his shoulders every night, and is arguably the most important goalie to his team in this league... not Brodeur... not Lundqvist.
