MORE SHAKE-UPS INVOLVING THE LIEWEKE FAMILY

     Canucks VP of Marketing and Communications Glen Ringdal
resigned yesterday, amid "speculation he would not be invited
back" by Northwest Entertainment Group (NEG after his contract
expires this summer.  The move gives the team "a chance to get
more in tune" with NEG's "progressive" empire, according to Iain
MacIntyre in this morning's VANCOUVER SUN.  MacIntyre reports
that Ringdal "bore the brunt of criticism" for the handling of a
49% ticket price increase this season, and for doing "nothing to
enhance [the team's] image or promote its games."  NEG Exec VP
Tod Lieweke will "add Canuck marketing and communications for his
responsibilities," and Canuck Corporate Sales Director Ric
Thomsen and Media Relations Dir Steve Tambellini will take over
other duties (VANCOUVER SUN, 4/4).
