So many goalies have had their few months / weeks at the top and then it's done. Finished. He's not terrible, but he isn't anything special either. What the hell has he ever done in his career that the most significant moment will not be that lame ass 5 hole goal that he gave up to Crosby? His Vezina? Jim ****ing Carey of all people can lay claim as a Vezina winner. Maybe it sounds harsh but whatever. Miller does nothing for me.
Without Miller, Team USA doesn't even qualify for a medal in the 2010 Olympics. His 2010 line was 1.35 GAA with a .946 save percentage in 6 games. He played incredible and was awarded Tournament MVP for Christ's sake!! I think he may be outspoken and brash, but he's a very good goaltender.

his play has dropped off since then.

that's all nona was saying. seems his ego got hurt, maybe that's why his attitude is so foul.

first thomas, then quick.

Miller's career is based off that Olympics. Those were the 6 best games he played in his life. He had a good year that season.

Prior to that year, and since that year, he's been very average.

See, this is what I'm exactly saying. If you wouldn't have posted that stat line to me, I would have never ever remembered anything close to those #'s as good as they are. But I do remember him laying an egg that only a dinosaur would be proud of at the absolute worst time.

The Olympic #'s are such a small sample size, and he honestly doesn't need them as support if he's a good goalie or not. I just feel that he's a crybaby dick, he hasn't had this amazing memorable career and he's overrated.

As a Sabres fan, I come in peace. I'm just curious why you guys thought the Sabres played a dirty game today (You guys are talking like it was one of the dirtiest games of hockey in the NHL this year)? The two primary pairs who were in each other's faces tonight were Ott-Clarkson, and Kaleta-Kovalchuk. I'd say each of the partners in these pairs dished it out to the other pretty equally.

You can say that Regher cross checked Kovalchuk late in the game (which should have been a penalty, but I don't think was with malicious intent), but at the same time I could bring up that Ennis got boarded twice (no, "he's so small" isn't a good excuse for boarding).

Just curious what specific plays upset you guys the most.

On the Miller matter in general, I find it funny that he has now become goalie POS nr. 1, and Luongo has turned into the well liked guy because of his seriously funny and self-joking twitter. Not really how it was right after Olympics.

Luongo >>>>> Miller

And nobody will blast me for that. Nice.

He was 8th in Sv% the year prior to that Olympic year. Last year, he had a 1.91 GAA in his last 35 games after coming off that concussion ( couldn't find the sv% numbers). This year he's 15th in Sv% even with the horrendous defense the Sabres are playing.

Quick for me. I mean right? Miller can be backup, because honestly there probably isn't anybody better. Schneider was looking good, but he's been off and on this year.

27 Jonathan Quick in 2014 has to be a better option than Ryan Miller who will be 34 in 2014. This may sound harsh, but I want Miller as the starter as much as Canadiens want 41 year old Marty Brodeur to be their starter. Miller is pretty overrated. He's not bad, but he's a head case, and has a lot of lapses. He's considered a top 10 goalie because of his save percentage. Buffalo usually gives up more shots than any other team, and this year they're dead last. Now was Miller really standing on his head today? He made a bunch of good saves, but nothing that was the main difference. I'm pretty sure the Devils had 26 shots after 2 periods today. They ended the game with 31. So Miller gave up 2 goals on the last 5 shots of the game today. Not saying either was a bad goal either.

He's actually been pretty great this year. The Sabres defense is just so putrid, that he hardly has a chance a lot of the time. Hard to judge it off of the numbers.

You're playing with fire...

As for the Quick/Miller Olympic question, the job is Quick's to lose.

Tallinder has looked pretty good as of late, and hasn't been a liability. I like the defense the way it is now. If the PP keeps sucking though then honestly I have no use for Zidlicky, but I want Harrold to be given a chance before Volchenkov gets back in it.

I've always made fun of Luongo, but it was mostly his equipment size. I never have ripped on his abilities unless I was making a joke about his enormous equipment. Luongo has those lapses sometimes, but he's usually pretty consistent. Unfortunately one of those lapses came during a SCF game where he could have eliminated Boston. Occasionally he'll have an 8 goal against game like last week, but he wasn't as bad as he looked that game. I like Vancouver in the west so I can't really rip on Luongo. He's a very classy guy, and was one of the best personalities during the lockout. Ryan Miller was CRYAN miller during the lockout. Lundqvist was also very pleasant during the lockout.

I don't think Miller will even be on the roster. Quick has been the favorite for a while, but don't sleep on Craig Anderson.

Keep forgetting Craig Anderson is American. Yeah sorry cryin ryan, but I want Craig over him. Miller is a has been, and he'll never win a damn thing. He's got his silver medal, and a vezina. Sorry lurking Buffalo fans, but this is what I think.

On the topic of Hedberg I can't blame him for today. What goals are you guys blaming on him? 3rd goal wasn't great, but don't tell me the shorty? You can't leave a guy all alone in the slot like that. Moose made a save on Pominville from the slot again later in the same period. Some healthy beast mode Marty would help though. I'm just worried he'll have a setback cause of the injury and not play at the level he was. Brodeur has been one of the best goalies in the league this year, and this is no bias. He'd have a better save percentage than almost anybody if the PK hadn't started falling apart. Marty's been one of the best goalies in the league dating back to January of last year.

I don't think they will either. Quick should get the starting position, and I'm sure he will. The one bright spot after losing the SCF last year was ''Well at least we get this ****er Quick in net for 2014!''

Yapping like a jackass when you won a game in a shootout, at a player who made you look stupid on a shorthanded breakaway, all while your team is in 12th place, has Miller coming across looking like quite the tool.

This was really an inexcusable game to lose.

I'm sorry, but this deserves a facepalm. So many amusing posts because of a loss.

I'm sorry that you're sorry. Take a walk.

Losing to Buffalo is as bad in hockey as it is in football.

This the Devils forum, and we'll talk about what we want here. If it's something degrading to your team, then go away and post something degrading about our team on the Sabres forum. Until then enjoy your cheap poor mans Hasek successor. How about when he fell asleep, and died for two months last year and you guys fell out of a playoff spot huh?


Tallinder wasn't bad the last two games and this is coming from a guy who wanted him to dissappear last week. Tallinder was actually one of the better defensemen the last two games. If anything Greene has been looking a little meh.
