Impact
He let up five goals on only 13 shots, before getting the hook. It was Miller's first loss of the season, but owners should expect this just to be a minor hiccup. Eddie lack took over, and he was able to stop 14-of-15 shots on goal.

Impact
So far so good for Miller and Vancouver, as he is now 3-0-0 with a 1.95 goals against average, and a .927 save percentage. It is early, but this signing is looking like a steal. Fantasy owners, start Miller with confidence.

Impact
Miller stopped 23 of 25 shots in a victory over the Flames in Calgary on Thursday. Vancouver will welcome the Edmonton Oilers on Saturday. Miller could be a top-10 fantasy goalie again this season, but he must play well against the lower-tier teams like Edmonton in order for that to happen.

sportsnetwork.com

Impact
The 26-year-old set career highs with 22 goals, 27 assists (49 points) and 159 SOG this season and could see more ice time this season. We like another 50-point season in 2014-15.

Winger Radim Vrbata signed a two-year contract with the Vancouver Canucks and should enjoy his time there on a line with Daniel and Henrik Sedin.
sportsnetwork.com

Impact
The 33-year-old Vrbata had 20 goals, 31 assists, 263 SOG and 21 PPP last season, so he was still a quality fantasy winger and is the first option to play with the twins. We're predicting an increase in scoring to 29 goals and 56 points for the upcoming season.

Impact
Entering his 14th season, Sedin's injury concerns and simply the effects of nearly 1,000 games is a worry, but we think he bounces back with a solid 28 goal, 32 assist season. No, it's not the 104 points he produced in 2010-11, but he's still a useful fantasy asset.
Linden Vey likely to be Canucks No. 3 center | 07/19/2014 9:42 AM
News
Linden Vey, acquired at the 2014 NHL Entry Draft from the Los Angeles Kings for the 50th pick the Canucks got for defenseman Jason Garrison, should be Vancouver's No. 3 centre next season.
TSN.ca

Impact
The Canucks have signed the restricted free agent to a one-year contract. Canucks general manager Jim Benning said he knew plenty about Vey from his time living in Boston while the 22-year-old played for the AHL's Manchester Monarchs. Vey also played for new coach Willie Desjardins with the WHL's Medicine Hat Tigers. "There's a familiarity with Linden," Benning said. "He's a puck-possession guy, he's strong, he's a good two-way player, he plays a 200-foot game. He's ready to play in the NHL now." Vey only has 18 games of NHL experience due in part to the Stanley Cup-champion Kings' depth of young forwards. Benning said he'll get more opportunity in Vancouver.

News
Jacob Markstrom has denied a recent report that he requested a trade after the Canucks signed Ryan Miller.
News 1130 Sports on Twitter

Impact
Vancouver might try to trade Markstrom regardless because he's set to come with a $1.2 million cap hit in 2014-15 despite the fact that he's currently projected to be the team's third goaltender. If he does stay in Vancouver then he'll have a hard time getting starts against Miller and Eddie Lack.

Impact
"I don't know where that came from. We were never actively looking to trade Hunter Shinkaruk. This stuff gets started out there," said Benning. "That's not true." Shinkaruk previously stated that he liked the media side of hockey and said he still enjoys it despite the recent trade speculation. He added that he's fully recovered from the hip surgery he underwent in January.

The Province

Impact
Markstrom sees the writing on the wall with Ryan Miller being signed and Eddie Lack the likely backup. The Canucks have explored trades and there are interest from three teams. "That situation could work itself out over the summer," general manager Jim Benning said. "The teams that are interested may have to move out another guy. . We're exploring that for Jacob. But if that doesn't happen, Jacob comes to camp. He has a good attitude. He understands the situation. . Look at Minnesota last year. They went through about five goalies." Markstrom carries a $1.2 million cap hit. He had a .918 save percentage in 29 games in the AHL last year, and a .873 save percentage in 16 games in the NHL.
D Chris Tanev not feeling love from Canucks | 07/06/2014 10:09 AM
News
Chris Tanev has accepted a one-year contract with the Canucks for $2 million but he still isn't feeling the love from the organization.
Rotoworld.com

Impact
Tanev, who established himself as a top-four defenseman last season averaging 20:44 in 64 games, to a bargain-basement $2-million, one-year deal. The signing came hours before the deadline to file for salary arbitration. There was a feeling from Tanev's side that $2 million would be his ceiling in an arbitration award because he's not a big-time producer in measurable stats like points. But it's nowhere near what the 24-year-old would get on the open market. The key stat in arbitration for defensive defensemen, however, is ice time, and there were two RFA defensemen who've signed in the past year comparable to Tanev. Ottawa's Jared Cowen, with 158 career games to Tanev's 156, averaged 13 fewer seconds than Tanev this past season and put up 15 points. Ottawa signed Cowen in September to a four-year, $12.4-million contract. There's also Washington's Karl Alzner, who averaged 12 fewer seconds and had one more point than Tanev last season. He just finished the first year of a four-year, $1

Alex Burrows likely to play with Bonino | 07/04/2014 9:42 AM
News
Alex Burrows will likely skate on the second line with Nick Bonino in 2014-15.
Vancouver Sun

Impact
Radim Vrbata is projected to play with the Sedin twins, so Burrows will get Bonino and either Zack Kassian or Jannik Hansen as his linemates. "I think we want to have more balance on our four lines and more scoring depth," said GM Jim Benning. "So if we can move Alex, say, from the first line to the second line, it makes our second line better. I think now we have depth at the forward position where every line can contribute in scoring and that's one of the things we set out to do." Burrows struggled mightily last year, while earning five goals and 15 points in 49 appearances.

Radim Vrbata fielded a number of offers | 07/03/2014 7:57 PM
News
Radim Vrbata and his agent fielded a number of offers before the winger decided to sign with the Vancouver Canucks.
Arizona Republic

Impact
The team Vrbata left, the Arizona Coyotes, were among the suitors for his services, but it's clear their offer was far less lucrative than the one he settled on. "We both tried really hard to find something if something would work," said Vrbata. "Over 24 hours, I don't know if you'd say we were close but we had something I would consider even though it was less money and if it got out, some people would think I was crazy." The change of scenery should be positive for the forward provided he lines up alongside the Sedins, as expected.
Radim Vrbata expects to play with Sedin twins | 07/03/2014 2:08 PM
News
Radim Vrbata expects to get a chance to play with Daniel and Henrik Sedin in Vancouver, according to his agent Rich Evans.
Vancouver Sun

Impact
"I guess he's going to have to earn the spot but the opportunity is hopefully there for him to do that," Evans said. "The twins play a style of game that is well suited to the style that Radim plays, which is pitch and catch where they move the puck very quickly. The twins are both smart players and he is hoping to recapture some of the success he had when he was playing with Ray Whitney down in Phoenix." He's also projected to add some scoring punch to the Canucks' power play, which finished 26th in the league last season. Vrbata potted 10 goals with the man advantage in 2013-14. If he clicks with the Sedins, he has the potential to flirt the 60-point mark.

Impact
The 33-year-old Vrbata had 20 goals, 31 assists, 263 SOG and 21 PPP last season, so he was still a quality fantasy winger. His value will grow on the Canucks, especially if he's used on the top line with the Sedins.
