Canucks sign Ryan Miller to three-year, $18 million contract
The free agency frenzy hasn’t been active for long and we’ve already seen some big names make a home with a new team. Paul Stastny moved from the Colorado Avalanche to the St. Louis Blues in a deal worth $28 million.
Now, one of the best goaltenders available is already off the market. Ryan Miller, formerly f the Buffalo Sabres and St. Louis Blues, has signed a three-year $18 million contract with the Vancouver Canucks.
Miller had a .916 save percentage for both the Sabres and Blues in the 2013-14 season. He’d been traded to the Stanley Cup-hopeful Blues from the Sabres mid-way through the season but had largely been disappointing.
New Canucks general manager Jim Benning obviously thought he needed to add a veteran goalie to the roster. However, it;s not likely that Miller will be a back-up to last years starter Eddie Lack wuth $18 million invested in him.
