Idea of the Day: Miller should start in net for Team USA

Miller to the Wings next
This may make me a traitor but as a Canadian, I am rooting for Miller as the start-up goalie for the U.S., to shut out Crosby and nab the gold. Then for the Sabres to do the decent thing, let him go - hopefully to the Red Wings. There he can team up withhis brother and lead Detroit into the Stanley Cup finals. He is that good!
I want to cheer for him though I'm in Canada.
You don't need the statements following the ranking. Just rate the idea. Adding the inane comment makes me want to move on and ignore your silliness.
Canada wants this!
who wouldn't want an average goalie playing against you?
Canada has absolutely lost its dominance of hockey.
Boo hoo cry me a river, Canada can't bully its way to a medal anymore, like they did against an unquestionably more talented Red Army team long ago! Better get out the VHS tapes of when Canada got away with everything except fair play, lol.
aww, poor Leafs fan
Still upset that Millers winning percentage vs the Leafs is around .700. How was that monumental choke vs the Bruins last year? Give the Sabs another year and we will be back to beating you on a regular basis like we have done for years. Since 2006 you are 18-34 against the Sabres LOL.. ahahaha
its funny because you are terrible, silly Leafs ahahahah
Idea of the day
Quick...Quick...Quick. He is elite. He won a cup and he can win the gold medal for the US team.
Keep an eye on the power plays Canada will get in the tournament and the 5 on 3's.
Miller as starter? Based on what, the past four years?
Did you geniuses forget about Quick? That isn't some average "other" goalie; we are talking Stanley Cup winner and strong in a powerful conference. If you're team USA, you ride that pony and know you have a solid back-up in Miller. Again, the only debate is in Buffalo.
Who cares who starts.Just get the gold.
Miller should start because if you live in buffalo. This may be the last we see him here in buffalo. Oh boy it really hurts to say that. But don't start putting down Quick either these two goales are going through the same thing with their teams. Its just miller need to set it off to prove his point. When it comes down to Quick he has won a cup, We never understand why were their fans were so mad at him in the first place. It isn't Miller or Quick fault the they GM got rid of all the players around them. So lets for once pull together And cheer the whole team for the gold. And to the idiots thats always on the sabres back. Well i would of our team not to make the playoffs. then like the leafs who got out played like they were in the peewee league. Aww then that hurt baby. Take your tumb out of you mouth, now go to you room and go get you sabres toys to play with. Don't worrie its ok to cry. And keep your finger out of your nosie that nasty baby. for lol.
Yes!He's played some of his best hockey for a very bad team.
Anyone else get the feeling that the Team USA women's team could beat the current Sabres?
Goaltending controversy Team USA???
Only the Miller shillers on WGR and most fans of Buffalo would only create that. OK, now to reality: Quick has won the Stanley Cup so he should be the one between the pipes and Miller to be the backup as far as I'm concerned. Quick is way better besides GAA. Let's cut out the cr*p and roll with it.
comment from the couch
I guess that's why there are qualified professional coaches and trainers in charge of lining up rosters instead of fantasy world players!!
Miller just not as good or successful as Quick
Miller has had a very good to great season but if Quick never got hurt there would not even be any debate at all. Quick's injury (coincidentally against the Sabres) opened the door for Miller. Even with that though Quick is pretty much 100%. At 100% he is just a better goaltender than Ryan Miller and that is how it will play out during the Olympics and afterward as well. Darcy Regier is too blame for the whol entire Miller quandry that the Sabres are faced with. He over valued Miller for years and should have traded him several seasons ago. Now they are faced with the prospect of trading him because he is not re-signing here and if they let him leave for nothing as a FA then it's the second worst management gaffe by the Sabres since Drury and Briere.
Re: aww poor Leafs fan
Don't forget about that game 6 Miller blew against the Flyers the last playoff series the Sabres were in. The Sabres should have won that series 4-2. Miller blew the lead.
PLEASE START THE SWISS CHEESE !!!!!!!!!!!
JUST GOT SOME FRESH "SWISS CHEESE" TO GRILL!!! EVERY TIME MR SOFTEE CHOKES IN A BIG GAME MY RITUAL IS TO GRILL THE FRESH "SWISS CHEESE" AND PARTY!!!! START THE SWISS CHEESE!!!! PLEASE!!!
ROB RAY WANTS CANADA GOLD!!!
THATS WHY HE'S A BIG MILLER FAN!!!!
RE: aww, poor Leafs fan
Ya, AND please tell me "HOW'S LAST PLACE TASTE???" LOOK WHO'S "LAFFin" NOW, EH? LOLLOLLOL!!!!
re: to aww,poor leafs fan
it taste fine to me, new gm, new coach, new president of hockey. a 1st rd maybe two, but a lot of picks for this year. can start off fresh for the season. Hmm not so bad for being in last place you think. What do the leafs got. Oh to live with the fact that got whipped at home and on the road. hey we didn't bring these stats up. that idiot did. But we are moving forward at lease. can the ldiot say the same about the leafs. Everybody didn't exspected the sabres to make it so it dosen't hurt us. And the next time you start typing your comments. Go back to school to make your sentence make any kind of sense. What the hell is Ya,AND please. to start of a sentence, Thats even bad for a 4 grader. but we get your point. But do you get ours. your team was on world wide tv. Now thats really got to hurt for lol.
Miller v. Quick
I love Quick, but if you put Miller on the Kings and Quick on the Sabres, there's little doubt Miller would demonstrate he's the better goalie.
ALWAYS GOOD FOR A SOFTIE GOAL.CANADA WILL WIN GOLD USA THE BRONZE....ALLAH HAS SPOKEN!!!!!!!!!!!
I don't masterbate like I used to either..
Re: Miller v. Quick
Did you forget that Miller was on a president's trophy team? Yet he still couldn't seal the deal. Quick took an 8th seed and won the cup. Quick also won the Conn Smythe! Please, Cryan Miller doesn't deserve to squirt water into Quick's mouth.
Just bec Quick has a Cup??
Look,Quick is a great goalie!! But the only argument that all these Miller haters keep making is... That Quick is better than Miller and should start in the Olympics only bec he has won a Stanley Cup!!! Holy cow!! Thats great that hes done that and again Quick is great! But come on people, i can name 20 goalies who have won a cup but it dsnt mean they are the best or better then others who haven't! Im confident in saying that Miller could have and probably would have won the Cup with that same LA Kings team. But they r both Olympians for a reason. Miller was the MVP 4yrs ago for a reason too!! And because of the year Miller has had, he should deserve the 1st crack. But please just stop with the Stanley Cup reasoning for y Quick is better. Its a total team sport. Quick won and deserves credit. But Miller's had playoff success too. Back to back conference finals runs(1 of them a game seven) and of course the best player in the whole tournament/Olympics 4yrs ago. And that's y we love sports!!! They are unpredictable,unbelievable,and even if you have the absolute best talent,it doesn't guarantee a win. Sometimes u just need a little luck. (or in Buffalo's case... a lot!!! Go Sabres! Go USA! Go Ryan Miller!!
Crosby owns Miller. Rest my case. Can't wait when Miller gets traded after the Olympics to close the chapter.
Re: Just bec
I don't understand how someone can put letting in a soft goal and losing the gold medal on the same pedestal with WINNING the Stanley cup and Conn Smythe. News Flash: IT'S NOT.
re: to yeah
You need too so you can stop having all these babies that your a$$ can't take care of. Living off a women is so weak for a man. I guess that what seperate us men from the boys. Kid all in the street doing lord know what. Its just like jim kelly on the radio now trying to save kids in our own back yard. Now that a man of action. Not a man who has a baby and leave the mother to take care of the child by themself. so when you want to describe miller in you comments just remember these words Iodiot.
Let the Crying Begin at WGR
Johnathan Quick is starting in net in the opening game for Team USA. Disappointed? Awful quiet today.
Peters seems pretty crabby today for some reason. It's like he didn't get his way.
Don't people have to be calling a lot to qualify as a hotline? HAHA Start to look at this team from an arbitrary standpoint for once. Peters is the worst "tough guy" in NHL history. Way to protect your face!
QUICK STARTS... ONLY A SURPRISE IN....
LOoSERVILLE, USA! NOW GO GET YOUR "GRILLED SWISS CHEESE READY" SOFTEE FANS!!!
ALLAH DOESN'T KNOW SHITIT...
CANADA GOLD, RUSSIA SILVER, USA BRONZE... MAYBE.
From my Armchair
Sweden Gold, Russia Silver, Canada Bronze.
re:Just bec Quick has a Cup??
It isn't just the team Quick plays on. In 2006 the Sabres had an excellent team and Miller was not exactly great in the series against Carolina. In fact a good argument could be made that Cam Ward was a better goaltender in that series than Miller. When you look at goalies you have to examine the whole career including postseason wins and losses. Then you examine the exact same points in their careers. When you look at what Quick has done in his time and compare that same sample with what Miller had done over the same number of years as Quick.....Quick has been the better goaltender.
This isn't about the Toronto Maple Leafs.
Nolan's system stinks for Latvia too
Just compete not to lose and let the goaltender get shelled by pucks and hope to get to OT or a shootout and lose with seconds left in regulation. Oh so familiar.
