Playing Miller a lot is not going to accomplish that. If it did, Miller would have been Vezina caliber last season when he played 69 games, and played around 30 games in a row because Lalime was his back up.
If Ruff wants to win more games than they lose from here on out, he would do himself and the team right by starting the goaltender that is saving just over 92% of the shots he's facing for the season. Not coddle the other guy because of his name and history.
But Lindy Ruff doesn't care about winning, in and of itself, as much as he cares about winning or losing by giving his favorites the big minutes. That much is obvious after 14 years.
