Seriously? Lower body for goalies usually mean a groin tear. Would be my guess anyways.

Let's not jump right to the worst case scenario. It could just be a pull or mild strain.

Here's hoping for the best because he actually has looked good this pre-season.

Can't catch a break eh?

Primed to be the backup / challenge for the starter role this year, has a fantasic pre-season, and get's injured the day before the season starts.

Won't effect anything, rest him get him 100% and he will be fine.

hopefully Ferland runs Miller really good tonite

A disgrace to true fans you are.

It is in my hopes that, one day, the divide and conquer, seek and destroy mentality of your despicable kind will cease and the Canucks will finally have their fans behind them on their way to a Cup.

Until then, there won't be any Cup to be had; the media and fan are acting counter productive to success.
