VANCOUVER - The Vancouver Canucks acquired a new top-tier goaltender Tuesday, signing free agent Ryan Miller to a three-year deal worth US$18 million. http://www.realmadridonlineshop.es/nueva-mujer-adidas-camiseta-del-real-madrid-15-16-kiko-casilla-13-replicas-navy-tercera-equipacion-la-liga-club.html . The Canucks needed a proven netminder after trading Cory Schneider and Roberto Luongo in the past 13 months and missing the playoffs this season. Miller was seen as the best goalie on the free-agent market. "I felt it was important to get a goalie with experience," said Canucks general manager Jim Benning. "Over the years hes played a lot of games. He gives us that experience that we need." Benning is familiar with the 33-year-old Miller, having worked in Buffalos scouting department when the Sabres drafted the player in 1999. "Hes intense and focused," said Benning. "Our younger players are going to see the way he works in practice, how hard be practises. Its going to make them better players." The St. Louis Blues acquired Miller from Buffalo in February, hoping he could lead them deep into the playoffs. But the club was eliminated by the Blackhawks in the first round after Miller allowed 19 goals and posted a lacklustre .897 save percentage. He posted a 25-30-4 record with a 2.64 goals-against average and .918 save percentage this season. He has 294 wins, a 2.59 GAA with a .915 save percentage in 559 career NHL games. Despite his experience, Miller said he always sees himself as a work in progress. "I think Im still developing into the best player I can be," he said. "I take that part of hockey seriously, finding new things to add my game and taking consideration and coaching from other people." Miller said he has a fondness for Vancouver, especially after playing for the U.S. during the 2010 Winter Games. Sidney Crosby scored on Miller in overtime to lead Canada to victory in the Olympic gold-medal game at Rogers Arena. "Ive had a chance to experience Vancouver over the years and have always been blown away by the amount of support the fans the fans bring out and how great the crowds have been, also how kind the people have treated me over the years, especially during the Olympics," he said. "Its a great city for hockey, a great city to live in," he added. Benning has been busy over the past few days after trading forward Ryan Kesler just prior to the NHL draft. Its all part of a major rebuild for the Canucks, who have a new president in Trevor Linden, a new GM in Benning and a new coach in Willie Desjardins. http://www.realmadridonlineshop.es/camiseta-de-luka-modric.html .ca. Hey Kerry, Big fan of your column on TSN. It helps put things perspective from the official’s point of view. I was watching the game Tuesday night between the New York Islanders and the Toronto Maple Leafs and I was hoping that you could shed some light as to why David Clarksons late goal was disallowed. http://www.realmadridonlineshop.es/camiseta-de-alvaro-arbeloa.html . On one of the memorable European nights at Old Trafford, Van Persie scored three times in a 27-minute span either side of halftime to overturn a 2-0 deficit from the first leg. A slew of brilliant saves by David de Gea were also key to a famous win for the English champions -- and a vital one for their manager, David Moyes.The Canadian Football League announced on Monday that Hamiltons Kent Austin, Saskatchewans Corey Chamblin, and Calgarys John Hufnagel are the finalists for the CFL Coach of the Year award. Chamblins Roughriders defeated Austins Tiger-Cats in November to win the Grey Cup. Hufnagels Stampeders were the best teamm in the regular season with a 14-4 record. http://www.realmadridonlineshop.es/fc-equipacion-adidas-camiseta-real-madrid-segunda-gris-hombre-15-16-espa-a-24-asier-illarramendi-autenticas.html. Its the first nomination for coach of the year for Chamblin. Austin won the award in 2007 while coach of the Roughriders and Hufnagel won it in 2008. The winner will be announced on Feb. 5 in Ottawa at the leagues annual Congress meeting.
