But he's very talented, and at the time the Sabres had to pay him like a superstar to keep him. It's not Miller's fault he played out of his mind last year and became a star.
Let's play what if's, if Vanek sniped the top corner on the semi break away? Is Reimer at fault? Or is Vanek a better player than Clarke M?

This is the NHL, the excuse making for could of, should of's, is mind bobbling. Miller steals a goal from Lupul point blank, the d-coverage was average all game. Name a goalie that does not let in a soft goal.
