This morning news broke that the Canucks have re-signed RFA goalie Eddie Lack to a two-year deal, reportedly worth $650,000 in the NHL/$85,000 in the AHL for the first year and $850,000 in the second year.

It looks to be a two-way deal in year one and a one-way deal in year two.

Lack originally signed by the Canucks in April of 2010, is likely to be the back up for the Vancouver Canucks if and when the season starts.

Nothing not to "Lack" about this deal

Lack, who has yet to appear in an NHL regular season game, completed his second professional season in the Canucks organization. Lack has a 49 - 41 - 7 record in 99 games played with the Manitoba Moose and the Chicago Wolves.

I like this signing for the Canucks. It solidifies the goaltending position for and adds depth. The Canucks could still acquire a veteran back up goalie in case the 24 year old struggles in his first season with the Canucks.

The 24-year-old Swede, who has played two seasons in the American Hockey League, inked a two year, $1.5 Million contract yesterday...

NHL wants to punish and black list divers

Diver/Fraud I find it funny if not ironic that the Vancouver Canucks defenseman Kevin Bieksa would be on a committee of NHL players to look at diving and divers, when he's on a team that employs three of the biggest divers in the National Hockey League, Ryan Kessler, Maxim Lapierre, Alex Burrows, and lets not forget the Sedin Sisters who are also the kings of the...
