Really? More money? You didn't get enough?

So ok, I have no idea if he didn't receive full payment, and my reaction is from a bitter fan perspective. But tonight Darren Dreger mentioned in Inside Hockey that Mark Messier is pursing money that wasn't paid to him that was part of his contract. It's part of money that tied to increased value for while he was in Vancouver. According to Dreger, the money is of significant value and that he had filed a grievance about it a couple years ago but that an arbitrator is finally getting around to hear his claim.

Via The Province, the statement released by the Canucks is:

“The contractual situation involving Mark Messier and the hockey club is an on-going process and as a result Canucks Sports & Entertainment will respectfully defer further comment until the issue has been resolved.”
