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).
