Will NHL investigate Canucks now too?

With the Vancouver Canucks announcing Wednesday they have signed goalie Roberto Luongo to a 12-year, $64 million contract extension, will the NHL look at this deal as closely as it is investigating Marian Hossa's contract with the Blackhawks? I'm betting not. The NHL didn't like the fact Hossa's 12-year, $62.8 million deal with the Hawks that is front-loaded took him past the age of 40. Luongo's is 30, which means he'll be 42 - same as Hossa - when this contract expires. And he's a goalie! The Hawks don't think they have anything to worry about with regard to Hossa's contract, but who knows? This is the NHL and Gary Bettman we're talking about.
