Don't mind three... Had hoped for two. Price seems a bit steep, but Lenning must not have been sold on the Lack/Markstrom conbo

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.

I find it amusing that Miller came back to the scene of his 2010 Olympic loss, while the goalie who beat him could not be further away from it.

Keeps them away from McDavid or Eichel...

They should be competitive next season.

Do you really think this is a good deal?

Miller is going to crash and burn in Vancouver.

Not sure I fully understand this move from the Canucks if they're going after McDavid/Eichel. Miller showed what he could do on a terrible team.

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.

Canucks still can't score... I don't think this will stop is from sucking, we have one top line followed by two 3rd lines and a 4th line. In the West this will still make it tough to win.

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.

Why not? Miller's wife is an actress and I don't see him finding a job in California, why not sign in Hollywood North?

Eddie "Better than Luongo and Schneider" Lack is now a back-up goaltender for the next three years.

Not a fan of this move.

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.

I think Benning has showed he'll do what it takes to improve the team. I can't see him completing all these bold moves and completely ignoring our lack of scoring.

I truly don't understand the comments laughing at this signing or calling it the worst signing of the day.

6M is about average for a slightly above average but not elite starter. It's right in the cap hit range of guys like Ward, Crawford, Lehtonen, Varlamov, Smith and just a hair over what Howard makes.

3 years is enough time for him to take some pressure off Lack and allow Eriksson, Cannata and Demko to develop.

Can someone please explain, in a world where Bolland is getting 5.5 x 5 and Pouliot is getting 4 x 5, how this signing is THAT atrocious?

Any chance they trade Lack and keep Markstrom?

If Markstrom does leave, his development might take a big hit. He was retooling his entire style with Rollie, and who knows what the next goaltending coach would do with him...

I'm just wondering if you've actually seen him play lately.
