The point of it all is... Giving up 3 Goals does not translate into a bad game .... in fact you can have an awesome game and give up 3 goals. Team Canada 3 - Team USA 2 ... Don't think you will find any sane person thinking Miller had a bad game.

All you're doing is showing your hate for Miller ... determining an outcome even before it takes place when there are countless variables that are taken into account.

Enjoy the game. Don't poke too hard ..

Can we please keep the Miller argument in the other thread? Not trying to play moderator here, I'm just sick of reading it.

Oh great, another poster who does nothing but rail against Miller and ***** that Vanek doesn't get enough ice time.

Here's a clue: he doesn't kill penalties very often. He leads the team in ice time if you add only ES + PP minutes.

Perry and Getzlaf get over 22 minutes a game...

The Ducks are 6-7 with 3 OT Losses.

To add to that Perry and Getzlaf get those minutes, because their bottom six sucks.

Yup. Why keep Vanek fresh in October and November ... we should run him into the ground.

There's a fallacy that Vanek would be just as effective if getting more time.

The truth is, he may or may not. I think people forget Vanek takes a physical beating especially when he goes to the net. That's tough work, and you don't know if getting more ice time would just wear him out more and reduce his marginal effectiveness, or if he would maintain his beastly pace for the whole game. I'd be interested in seeing how his play varies with ice time, it wouldn't surprise me if somewhere around 18-19 minutes was the "sweet spot."

I've gotta feeling VAP explode again tonight, but in a losing effort.

6-4 Bruins. Vanek with a hatrick.

thats great he doesnt kill penalties, give him some more ES time and while we are at it...pominville who is on his line gets much too little ice time as well. Basically that whole line should get more ice time. Second line with roy also gets too little ice time. Why not have your better players out on the ice longer?

I understand the "he hurt my Player" but it was hardly on purpose and was unfortunate.

Are you kidding? It was an accident.

If you're a Penguins fan who hates Myers for inadvertently injuring a player, I sure hope you aren't hypocritical enough to cheer for Matt Cooke.

I see this as a Statement Game more than anything tonight. I think if Buffalo can get Gaustad and Kaleta established early by getting them in Lucic and Marchand's face it will make life a lot easier for our Playmakers if we can get those two off their game and make them non-factors tonight.

As well, I feel Big Games from Miller and Stafford tonight.

EDIT: Miller played well before he got a cheap shot from Lucic and Stafford showed glimpses but still not enough from Stafford tonight.
