lots of hockey action still going on around the world as well. Sweden took the World Cup – leaving Canada in the dust (not even finishing with a medal). The Giants stay alive at the Memorial Cup yesterday – after losing their first games, they defeated Peterborough 3-2. Canucks’ ex-coach Marc Crawford has gone to the LA Kings and Sutter has given our organization the cold-shoulder. We’re now looking at Vigneault – current head coach of the Manitoba Moose. Although it’s still not 100% clear whether or not he’s taking the position.
