Ryan Miller May Have His Ups And Downs In Vancouver

from Jason Botchford of the Vancouver Province,

Now with Luongo, Jacob Markstrom, Eddie Lack and Miller all on the payroll, the Canucks are set to spend $9.15 million on goalies next season.

Some things never change.

Miller does have comfort with Jim Benning, who drafted him.

It won’t be easy in Van City. Especially when his backup is set to be the impossible-to-dislike Eddie Lack, who was handed Roberto Luongo’s job last season and did just fine as a rookie as John Tortorella power-drilled him into the ice.

The inevitable goalie controversy isn’t an if, it’s a when.

Miller, however, must have had some extensive briefs already on what he’s getting himself into. His agent, Mike Liut, also represented Cory Schneider and understands better than most who live outside this city the challenges of playing net here.

It’s not easy and Liut knows it.
