He kills penalties, he scores big goals, and he has become one of the best wingers in the league. His next contract will be an interesting one – the 31-year-old got a late start to his NHL career, and may feel entitled to a little back pay. And who could blame him?

Who is he? According to anguscertified.com he's one of the best contracts in the NHL, vastly outperforming his pay grade...well crap that gave it away didn't it?

Overhardt tells News1130 Sports that he's not impressed with Vigneault's insinuation that Kesler's labrum injury was not the reason why the forward's production slipped this past season, suggesting that the Canucks' head coach should stick to coaching and leave the medical issues to the doctors.

What can I say? It's late May and the Canucks are not playing. This shit gets the headlines now. Go drama!

Gillis on Vigneault, Luongo, booth, and Playoffs (Team 1040)

+

No hurry to make decisions on Luongo or Vigneault BY IAIN MCLETCHIE THURSDAY, MAY 17, 2012 Canucks GM Mike Gillis joined BMac and Taylor Thursday afternoon on TEAM1040, discussing a number of Canucks-related topics. Gillis says he’s been talking to Alain Vigneault about the club’s plans going forward, but is in no hurry to announce anything related to Vigneault’s job safety or regarding a rumoured extension for Vigneault. He also talked with Roberto Luongo today (Thursday), but Gillis chose not to comment on whether he’s making progress towards moving Luongo. Gillis also commented on David Booth, who’s been in the news due to his bear-hunting excursion in Alberta, on the NHL playoffs to this date, and gave his thoughts on certain proposals that may or may not improve the game of hockey.

CDC: What would you say is his biggest strength on the ice? B: "His positional play. He gets in the battles, he is not the biggest or strongest kid but he has a real strong stick. In his own end he is always on the right side of the puck with an active stick. When he tries to do too much he finds himself in trouble like most young kids, but he doesn’t do that very often." CDC: If there is a current or former NHL player that plays a similar style to Frank, and who would that be in your opinion? B: "There are a couple players that come to mind that I played with, Charlie Huddy and Bruce Driver. Just complete players that can do it all and play in any situation. Dan Hamhuis is another example, a pretty unheralded player, a very complete player, and I think Frankie is along those lines."

Dan Murphy's Luongo List Does Not Exist!

2

Ever since Mike Gillis' presser and Luongo's interview shortly after, the media and fanbase have exploded in assuming that Luongo wants out, and that Gillis has a list of teams that Lu would go to. I was curious where the list started and what was the source that reputable insiders Darren Dreger, and Elliot Friedman were on board with. An article on Sportsnet pointed at Dan Murphy, who had posted on Twitter Apr 25th that Toronto was on the list. This article posted 2 days later, by Dan Murphy, is not quite a retraction but does open up the possibility that Luongo might not even make it to market. Just imagine if that prediction comes to pass. How bad will the sports media in this town will look?
