Luongo may be eased out of Captaincy next season.

"No... seriously, the pressure destroyed me" - Roberto Luongo
There's buzz around the league that Roberto Luongo, Canucks Captain shall be eased out of the captaincy next season.

Gillis said he planned to talk to Luongo about it and then make a decision. I'm not sure whether that meeting has been held, but unless Luongo is adamant about remaining captain -- and I don't think he is -- look for a change to be announced sometime around training camp.

I'd be willing to bet a few sheckles that Henrik Sedin, the team's first Hart Trophy winner, will be the new Canuck captain.

This is being reported by Brad Zeimer at Canada Communities.
