Thank goodness it's September with training camp and the pre-season right around the corner. I can't take any more cap, SPC, or roster speculation. I am going so insane with the lack of any hockey to watch (although thank you TSN for re-playing so many Olympic games and the Bruins/Flyers game 7 lately) that I actually came up with the most insane idea ever to "solve" the Canucks' problem of Luongo's captaincy (co-captains!). Heck I even feel the Leafs Annual hasn't been enough to tide me over, since most articles cover things we've talked about at length here. Nevertheless, in a little over a week I will be heading off for a fine vacation in New York City and when I return, there will be preseason hockey to watch. YAAAAAY
