That's not really surprising, given how careful they were with him and how hush-hush they were about it with the media.

It must have been minor, though, because he was great in the playoffs.

So was it the puck that he took of of the Brian Rolston shot? Or something else? I recall him taking a stick to the face/upper body area, but I can't remember when and where that happened

Well there was that period when he got hit in the head with shots a few times...they said it was just a large bruise but I guess it was a concussion too.

Ryan Miller, following a long season-ending chat today, didn't want to keep his injury secret any longer. He acknowledged the injury that sidelined him late in the year was a concussion. His head got dinged by four shots in a week, with blasts from New Jersey's Brian Rolston and Toronto's Dion Phaneuf doing the most damage, though it was the cumulative effect that sidelined him.

He acknowledged he did have a significant bruise on his collarbone area, but that wouldn't have made him miss the number of games the concussion did.

Roloston's shot was part of it, but it was a cumulation of things. He took a shot off the head from a Phaneuf shot too.

I don't see how the series loss is Miller's failure.

I sort of figured that this was the case. "Upper Body Injury," along with the team being super cagey about the nature of the injury or a time table for a return ALWAYS goes down as concussion in my book.

If you think the Sabres lost that series because of "Miller's failure," then I'm pretty confident that you didn't actually watch any of the games.

No wonder he was off. Injured practically all year.

Just like you can spin the team's playoff exit to a "Miller failure".

if miller can stay healthy next year like he did during the 2009-10 season...perhaps he returns to form. good news.

sidenote: the fact that he still played well throughout lingering injuries and a concussion - to me - speaks volumes about this guy's competitiveness. definitely the team leader, and i understand why the player's picked him as the team's mvp.
