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...

Eddie Lack Tweets Dinner Request To Ryan Miller, Roberto Luongo Chimes In

The Vancouver Canucks acquired free agent Ryan Miller on Tuesday, giving the goalie a three-year deal worth a reported $18 million. The Canucks haven’t had much success with goalies since trading away Roberto Luongo and Cory Schneider, and Miller is a consistently good netminder and was the best goalie on the market. Needless to say, that made a lot of Canucks happy. Goalie Eddie...

Hip hazard no bar to Canucks drafting goalie Thatcher Demko

The Canucks drafted a goalie who likely requires surgery on both hips. And this is good. That’s because it’s almost certainly why the highest-rated goalie in the draft fell to the Canucks, who selected Boston College’s Thatcher Demko with the 36th overall pick. The Canucks need a young, stud goalie in their system because it can take five years for a goaltender to develop...

Canucks’ Benning open to upgrading in goal

One year ago the Vancouver Canucks’ most publicized problem was having too many No. 1 goaltenders. Now we’re not certain they have any. That’s no slight to the team’s other Swedish duo, goaltenders Eddie Lack and Jacob Markstrom. But Lack, 26, and Markstrom, 24, have just 28 wins combined at the NHL level (Roberto Luongo has more than 13 times that many himself). Though...

Changing goalies won't do anything for Canucks' lack of scoring

Everywhere you go in this town the prevailing wisdom among fans seems to be that the Vancouver Canucks must find a free agent goalie in the offseason. Somehow, all of the mayhem brought about by the long losing streak just before the Olympic break and everything afterward seems to be getting hung on the head of Eddie Lack.

Leave it to Eddie Lack to provide some needed levity amid the seriousness of the situation. With vultures circling and ready to pick at the carcass of the decaying Canucks — whether John Tortorella survives for now in Vancouver, or falls on his coaching sword and is replaced at some point — the last line of defence is now the first concern if the Canucks hope to defy long odds...
