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.

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?

The Elephant In The Room

t seems to me that when sports meets a real world issue, sports journalists become experts of that issue instead of the sports specialist that these guys were hired for. This summer I have been listening to sports radio, reading blogs, and seeing some very shoddy journalism. I link to this article, written beautifully by Thomas Drance, as it shines a bright light on the real issue regarding Rick Rypien's death, mental health, and not his career choice as an enforcer. UPDATE: Listening to the Team 1040 today - and the link between these deaths is being made that these guys were fighters, and that if fighting was banned from the NHL that these guys would still be alive today. They should also look at the sad case of Tom Cavanagh who was not a fighter but took his life in Jan. 2011 after being diagnosed with mental illness. One caller who speculated that steroids might have been a factor in these players lives was dismissed and cut off before he could continue, because fighting had to be the focused on as the cause.

European Wing Target - Patrick Thoresen

With the NHL FA list dwindling, I give to you a possible low risk / high reward winger from the KHL. Capable of producing in the KHL regular season and playoffs at a very good rate. Same size as Jannik Hansen, but might be had for cheaper. - Thanks Dobber

If we didn't know exactly what these guys were earning, I highly doubt an Olympic gold medalist who just backstopped his team to Game 7 of the Stanley Cup Final would get so thoroughly ripped from every angle. But since he has a good agent he's apparently "brutal." You can't blame guys for squeezing every penny out of their employer, because of that whole "capitalism" premise we've been running with for awhile now.
