The Great American Hero

By Chris

Hello, world. Meet Ryan Miller.

If you managed to find the U.S.-Canada game on MSNBC, your jaw probably dropped a few times because of how awesome he is.

He’s the top trending topic on Twitter right now and he graced the cover of the Hockey News last week. You’re going to be hearing his name a lot. With 42 saves against The Chosen Ones tonight, he’s put the United States in a position to be the No. 1 overall seed for the rest of the tournament.

I feel guilty that we’ve been hogging him here in Buffalo, so I guess we can share him for a few weeks.

And yes, he’s that good pretty much all the time.


  1. It’s so awesome to see Miller in such a large spotlight and getting so much national attention.

  2. Unparalleled awesomeness!!!!!!!!!!!!

  3. To quote Ed Olyczyk he’s Tremendously Tremendous

    As a Sabre fan, I don’t mind hogging him one bit.

    Mike Milbury is Jerry Sullivan if he were a bitter old failure of an ex-NHL GM instead of a bitter more-irrelevant than he thinks News columnist. They even have similar accents. I’m not sure if Jerry has the same irrational hatred of Tim Connolly though.

    Don’t know what else I can say about our hero goalie than what’s already been said here and on the other blogs. That felt like a Sabres playoff win. Wonderful.

    Miller was awesome and there was some nostalgia with Drury playing so tough defensively and netting the go-ahead goal. However, there was a lot more to this team than those two and Rafalski. Kesler was amazing. He had some awesome backchecks and the empty net goal was pretty impressive. I, for one, am glad he’s in the western conference and Buffalo doesn’t have to go against him on a regular basis. Also, Dustin Brown, Parise, and Langenbrunner were all solid throughout the whole night. Also, they haven’t won anything yet. Belarus and Switzerland shouldn’t be looked past as they’ve won big games in Olympics past.
