The goaltending issues in Vancouver appear to have finally ended, as the team announced that they have signed the top goalie on the free agent market, Ryan Miller, to a 3-year, $18 million contract.
It was fun to watch the Canucks dig themselves into a deeper and deeper hole as they traded away two starting goalies and send the team spiraling to the bottom of the standings, but they have found themselves a solid goalie. Miller was not to blame for the downfall of the Buffalo Sabres, but still has not been playing the best hockey as of late. He got off to a great start in his first couple of games with the Blues, but ended up going 10-8-1 with a 2.47 GAA and a .903 SV%.
The Canucks will be nowhere near the top of the Western Conference this upcoming season, especially after trading Ryan Kesler to the Ducks, but they are on the right track with this signing. Even if Miller does not perform at his very best, he will at least be an improvement from Eddie Lack.
