I'd say, in the current NHL, he is an elite goaltender. He's a olympic starter, vezina winning goaltender. He's not terribly consistent, but as people have said... 29 games in a row and consistently sloppy D in front of him, game in and game out, will do that. If asked around the league who is the best goaltender, or hardest to play against, Miller would probably be at least in the top 5 of most of those charts.

Whether or not he will go down in the record books and be an elite, all time goaltender... I really doubt it. But for now, according to the league, players and most non-Sabre fans, I bet they'd call him elite.
Based on a recent NHLPA poll question.....Which goalie is the most difficult to score on? The players certainly think he is.



1. Luongo ---> 17%
2. Miller -----> 16%
3. Thomas ---> 15%
4. Lundquist -> 14.8%
5. Kipper ----> 4%
