Please continue the goalie carousel you have going there. It's too darn funny.
With many LOLs,
P.S. I thought Lack was a starting goalie?
Calling Lack a starting NHL goalie is nothing short of comical.
Happy with the move, the people acting like this is taking McDavid away from us need to look at the roster. It wasn't going to be bad enough to finish last in the league, and assuming we get a winger or two, it isn't impossible to sneak into a wild card spot.
If they suck next year, still have Miller for the next year. If someone needs a goalie at the deadline, Vancouver has the big trade chip. If Vancouver exceeds expectations and makes the playoffs, they have a guy who can take them far.
Money is probably a bit too much but it's Free Agency.
It's better than I thought it would be. Surprised Miller went for only 3 years at 33. That likely gives him at least one more contract but it'll be 35+. I'm not sure of Vancouver's strategy here but the deal itself is pretty solid.
I'm on the fence for now. Waiting for info on NTCs and such. As long as it's not a full NTC, I'm okay with it. Lack is very close to being a starter but he needed at least another year before he was ready. This gives him a bit more time to earn that spot.
Sad about Markstrom, though. No way he'll make it to Utica.
What on earth is Vancouver doing? Half-hearted, be mediocre, instead of full youth movement rebuild? They are the new Flames....
The Vancouver Canucks moved 2 core players this summer and are committed to a retool. The Vancouver Canucks did not part with any assets to pick up Ryan Miller, they are still building for the future. The Calgary Flames, were trading top picks and prospects for veteran players. The Vancouver Canucks have been trading veterans for prospects and picks, dumb comparison.
goaltending has never been the problem, now we are paying a 34 year old goalie 6 million till the time he's 37 with 5 good young goalies in the pipeline.
Gotta thing ownership was pushing Benning to make a move like this, so they could hold onto some hope of being competitive next season, which is the wrong way to go IMO, mediocrity is a bad place to be with where our team is at.
