Fact that Canucks need goalie just bizarre

When Ryan Miller was spotted at the Vancouver International Airport on Sunday, it really put into perspective the soap opera the Canucks have been for the past year.

Especially when it comes to the men between the pipes.

Had you taken a look at the Canucks roster exactly one year prior to Miller’s Sunday arrival on the left coast, you would have seen the names of Cory Schneider and Roberto Luongo under the heading of “Goaltenders.”

Ask any Canucks fan if he/she could have guessed at that time that Vancouver 12 months later would be wooing Miller because goal was a position of need, they likely would be shaking their heads no.

A goalie? That was the least of Vancouver’s issues at the time.

My, what a difference a year makes.
