The Vancouver Canucks May Need To Find A Replacement For Ryan Miller

from Jason Botchford of the Vancouver Province,

Vancouver needs to start preparing for life without goaltender Ryan Miller.

Wanted but unsigned, Miller has already been discussing his options with other National Hockey League teams and increasingly insiders believe the start of free agency will mark the end of his career as a Canuck.

Maybe the Canucks have a final push in them, but the best guess lately has been Miller-to-Anaheim, a team with Stanley Cup aspirations in a city which meets Miller’s desire to stay close to his wife (Noureen DeWulf) and her acting career in Los Angeles.

A Tuesday report suggested Miller is expected to end up there in a backup role on a one-year, $1-million deal.

Something like that would be considered a big blow for the Canucks’ 2017-18 plan, which has long included Miller, because Vancouver doesn’t appear ready for the untethered Jacob Markstrom era just yet. And on some levels you can see why.
