That being said you're right, he's only getting older...but as far as his career numbers go they don't do him justice.

He's much better than that 2.57 career GAA says he is and his .915sv% is just .003 less than Hanks .918.

Also interesting to note that I know a lot of people in Buffalo who are fed up with Miller, but I'm 100% positive that was just shiny new toy syndrome when Enroth started getting good playing time.
When I think Ryan Miller, I think of the 2010 Olympics. When I think of the 2010 Olympics, I think of one of the greatest goaltending performances I have ever seen in my lifetime.

Ryan Miller is every bit the elite superstar he's billed to be.
