Ryan Miller signed a three-year, $18 million deal with the Vancouver Canucks this summer, giving the Canucks some stability in the position as they enter an interesting period. Was last year's implosion a result of John Tortorella's presence, or natural decline from the ageing core players? In acquiring Miller, Vancouver gave itself a chance at a bounce back year and to see just what they have left in the tank. Wednesday, the team unveiled what Miller's new mask will look like. The green, blue and white native totem pole design on the front is a beautiful fit in to the Canucks look. On the back plate, Miller acknowledges his wife (Noureen), dog (Puck) and his cousin (MattMan) who passed away form leukaemia at the age of 18. They're tributes he makes on all his masks. He did it on the

Blues mask he wore for a short period and on his

Olympic mask in Sochi. What do you think of Miller's new Canucks mask?

Vancouver's other goalie, Eddie Lack, also got a new mask, designed by David Gunnarsson. Here's how

Gunnarsson describes the design on his Facebook page:

This new Canucks design is inspired by Justin Mo´s winning drawing from Eddie´s mask contest.

The design is a tribute to Eddie´s home in Canada and his heritage of Sweden. When you come really close to the mask and look in the sky over the mountains you will find details such as Canadian leafs and the three crowns of Sweden.

So, which Canucks goalie has the better-looking design?
