Robongo Posted February 23, 2015 Share Posted February 23, 2015 http://www.tsn.ca/radio/vancouver-1040-i-1410/jim-benning-updates-miller-injury-goaltending-situation-1.214155 gist: Miller on his way back to Vancouver to get an MRI in the next couple days, called up Markstrom. Wanted have depth this year in the goaltending position for this exact reason and is confident in both goalies going forward Lack was the starter at the end of last year so he's confident he will be able to carry the load. Isn't sure if Willie will start Markstrom, but management feels comfortable with him as Rollie and Clouts have worked with him and he's made great strides in his game. Doesn't think that from now until the end of the year waivers will be a problem for Markstrom Feels that with so many guys out, once we start getting some of our guys back they will give us a big boost and it'll almost be like they've made trades just by getting guys healthy. 2-3 weeks and hopefully all of our guys will be back (sans Miller) Nick Bonino has been skating and they hope he will play tomorrow, Tanev has been making good strides and could join us for the last game of the road trip. No word on anyone else Callups have played admirably and praised Travis Green for having them prepared so well. Tom Sesito shut down because it wasn't a good fit for Tom or for the Canucks/Comets so they are parting ways. Opinion on Zack hasn't changed. They know what he can do , but it's only about consistency. Looks to Jim that Zack is learning to be consistent and he's been playing better. Needs him to continue improving. Constantly talking to other teams leading up to the trade deadline. If something makes sense to help our team now and into the future they will look at it hard. They have a lot of young players coming up and won't be dealing them. ----- Miller's injury didn't look good by the way he was apparently limping very badly and in a knee brace post game. Minimum out 4-6 weeks and It's very possible that it's a tear and he's done for the season and playoffs. Hopefully not the case, but that's my feeling atm. The positive is we get to see the strides that Markstrom has made in his game (Unless Willie pulls a Tortorella ) Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
