I'm not saying it's realistic, or that I agree with Ruff's goalie management strategy. My point is simply that asking for Miller's best 40 games stretch is a very high bar - he's played at an elite level for extended periods of time.

Again - I'm not here to defend Ruff. His goalie management speaks for itself. I'm just saying that when he says he wants the best 40 games of Miller's career, that's a much higher bar than anything Enroth has or is likely to accomplish. Hell, it's pretty unrealistic to expect Miller to do that again this year - but I think he's speaking more figuratively than literally, and just looking to get the best out of Miller that he can.
