I'm looking forward to the Canucks tanking for a few years. Not only will it force the franchise to lower their ticket costs, but it allows for a bigger market share for my Whitecaps! At the cheapest ticket (last I checked), I would be lucky to make five games for the cost of my (10thish row) season tickets... talk about a rip off!
Totally agree regarding ticket prices although they will never go down. I only go to games I get free tickets to. Otherwise, it's all about the 57" LED
As for Miller, I'm just glad we got him for just a 3 year term. Demko will be ready in a couple years and I believe Miller and Lack, while not providing anything you'd bet money on to make a cup run, will provide enough decent, consistent goaltending to allow a team to develop in front of them around whatever systems the new braintrust has in mind. I doubt they'll tank per se but would be surprised if they're able to compete with anything resembling past years' success in this tough division. Still, I do anticipate some entertaining hockey and I doubt we'll be absolute bottom feeders by any means.
