Ryan Miller had a terrible outing against the Stars on Tuesday, lasting just over one period in a 6-3 loss.
Miller was beaten for five goals on 13 shots in 21:17 of playing time before coach Willie Desjardins mercifully removed him in favor of backup Eddie Lack. With this disastrous outing on his resume, Miller's record falls to 3-1-0 while his GAA is 3.20 and his save percentage is .884. Oct 22 - 12:40 AM

With the Canucks 2-0 victory over Edmonton, Ryan Miller is a perfect 9-0 against Edmonton in his career.

The Canucks can't wait to face the lowly Oilers again, especially with Miller between the pipes. He is now 3-0 this season with a 1.95 GAA and a sparkling .927 save percentage. He is a must start, especially against Edmonton.

Ryan Miller was perfect on Friday night, stopping all 28 shots Edmonton sent his way.

Three games. Three starts. Three wins for Miller and the Canucks. Sure his goals against average and save percentage aren't quite there yet, but after just a trio of games - what more could one ask for? Darcy Kuemper notwithstanding.

Ryan Miller yielded four goals on 29 shots in Vancouver’s 5-4 shootout win against the Oilers on Saturday night

Miller has two wins, despite a 2.88 goals-against average and .889 save percentage. He struggled when he got traded to the Blues, but perhaps the security of a three-year deal with the Canucks will help him find his game. Miller’s best days are probably behind him, but he can still be an asset in fantasy leagues.

Ryan Miller will make his home debut for the Vancouver Canucks on Saturday.

Miller stopped 23 of 25 in a nice victory over the Flames in Calgary on Thursday and will now face the Oilers in Vancouver. Miller has a chance to be a top-10 fantasy goalie again and will need to get wins against struggling teams like the Oilers for that to happen.

Miller stopped 23 of 25 shots as he picked up his first win as a member of the Vancouver Canucks on Wednesday night.

He allowed two second period goals, but shut the door in the third as Calgary was unable to tie it up. An empty net goal by Henrik Sedin secured the victory for Vancouver. This is exactly the type of performance that Vancouver fans want to see this year from their new number one goalie.

Eddie Lack played better than Ryan Miller during the pre-season but look for Miller to get the start in goal on Wednesday.

The Canucks open the regular season in Calgary and Miller will get the start as he was their big free agent signing in the off-season. The netminder split the 2013-14 season between Buffalo and St. Louis and a failed playoff run in St. Louis had Miller signing with the Canucks. He should be a top-ten goalie this year and should be drafted as such although getting Eddie Lack as a handcuff makes an awful lot of sense.

Ryan Miller stopped all seven shots Calgary sent his way in his first action in a Vancouver uniform.

He played only the first 30:22 but he still admitted that, "there's some rust to shake off, but it was a thrill to get out there with the jersey on." A fine way to kick off the preseason.

Ryan Miller is used to goaltenders being obsessed over.

Vancouver has had no shortage of goaltender drama over the years and it's a position that's consequently gotten a lot of media attention in the city. That doesn't mean Miller is entering unfamiliar territory though. "A lot has been made of it here and that’s because there are passionate fans," Miller said. "When you go to any NHL city and you talk about goaltending, it's all the same. I was compared to Dominik Hasek my entire career and there was always that shadow in the background because he was one of the greatest goalies ever, and you have to live up to that. People constantly compare you and they want to see you play to that level. And when you don't, it's: 'Dom was better.' You just do the best you can. It's the same in any NHL city and you guys don't have a monopoly on that here — sorry. You're under the microscope everywhere."

No goalie made more saves since 2009-10 than now-Vancouver Canucks netminder Ryan Miller, who made 8,278 the past five seasons (.919 save percentage).

The only netminder with more than 8,000 in that time frame is Henrik Lundqvist, who made 8,153 (.924 save percentage) in that time. Only seven goalies went over 7,000 saves.

The Canucks acquisition of Ryan Miller was the result of GM Jim Benning's plan to rebuild the franchise.

Vancouver President Trevor Linden explained in an interview that Benning's philosophy for building a winning team includes a focus on strong goaltending and it's clear the team felt Eddie Lack wasn't prepared to be the number one netminder. "As much as we felt (Eddie Lack) made great steps last year, Jim believes goaltending is the most important position in the game. He needed to know every night we had a chance to win and we’re going to be good in that position." It was already expected that Miller would see the bulk of the action in goal for Vancouver this season, but this solidifies the notion that Lack won't pose a serious challenge to him.

Ryan Miller didn't mesh with goaltending coach Corey Hirsch in St. Louis, but the veteran keeper feels that he is coachable.

"I'm open to being coached but I'm a little bit more stubborn in that you're going to have to really explain to me why it's going to work for me," Miller said. "I'm going to push back. If they are a good teacher, they're going to push back and ... we're going to have a great relationship." Some work was attempted to try to push him deeper into the net to clean up his technique, but it didn't work out well when he played with the Blues. Vancouver goalie coach, Rollie Melanson, is expected to take a similar approach.

Ryan Miller has signed a three-year, $18 million contract with the Vancouver Canucks.

This was rumoured for some time and Vancouver GM Jim Benning made good Tuesday by signing the top goalie in the market. Miller should thrive with the Canucks and rebound from an inconsistent 2013-14 campaign in Buffalo and St. Louis. We expect him to be a top 10 netminder in 2014-15 with better than league average GAA and SP stats and 35-40 wins.
Jul 1 - 1:08 PM

Ryan Miller is in Vancouver and is expected to talk to GM Jim Benning.

The unrestricted free agent was signed by Benning in Buffalo as Benning insisted on taking him in the fifth round of the 1999 Draft. Miller was dealt this season from Buffalo to St. Louis but the Blues allowed him to walk as they decided to go with Brian Elliott and Jake Allen between the pipes. Miller was 25-29-4 this season with a 2.64 GAA and a .918 save percentage.
