J.T. Miller's had an uneventful off-season for being a 99-point forward and arguably the face of the Vancouver Canucks franchise. In September he signed an extension with the Canucks for 7 years, totaling out at $56 million.

However, according to one NHL insider, the details are uglier than we thought with the Miller situation.
According to Nick Kypreos, J.T. Miller didn't even want to sign an extension in Vancouver, despite the fact the team shopped him around after the fact and there were no takers elsewhere in the league.
What it comes down to is Miller showed up for a season to get paid and Allvin and Rutherford did end up paying Miller his asking price. But afterward, you can see he's been checked out on the ice, as his lack of 200-foot game is showing. Rewarding a player like Miller whose only there to cash in, is another mistake that echoes Jim Benning all over again.
The last time the Canucks were fringe contenders was in 2020 and even then, Miller didn't push the needle enough to justify his time in Vancouver. But for Miller it was never about that team, it was about knowing no one else would pay him what he wanted.
