Benning needs to deal miller, lack or markstrom before July 1st


Recommended Posts

Benning can't run into the same problem gillis had with Schneider and luongo. You must take the best possible option at the 11th hour and not wait around for the deal you think you deserve for the asset because teams will find their needs elsewhere.

Ottawa has 3 nhl tenders so one must go, niemi is a ufa amongst other nhl goalies and is Howard or ward on their way out?

Maybe 4-5 teams on paper need a starter or a solid back up and with so many other options and possibly cheaper routes the Canucks can't wait and let this drag out

Honestly I'll shocked if benning doesn't deal one around draft day. He's well aware of what happened here and he can negotiate quite well (I.e Kesler trade, vrbata deal, garrison move) so I'm not worried that this will become a distraction

i say trade lack

you get your most value for him... keep miller only 2 more yrs left...we need a vet goalie in the pipes...

This. With trading Lack we get the best asset possible to help the team in the future. Miller's cap hit is irrelevant imo,since we're not likely to be contenders for the cup for at least 2-3 years when his contract expires anyway. Plus the Canucks the last few years seem pretty good at developing goaltenders in the farm system, so I don't think we really lose a lot in the long run if we deal Lack.
