All Eyes on Miller

From Shawn Roarke at NHL.com:

Ryan Miller is the biggest reason why the Buffalo Sabres sit in first place in the Northeast Division. In fact, the Sabres are built much like this Team USA—a solid foundation complemented by a collection of players in the proper roles, buttressed by superior goaltending.

Miller also resided among the NHL leaders in wins, shutouts, goals-against average and save percentage.

Simply put, Miller is the game-breaker, at the peak of his career, the Americans need if they want to prove the naysayers wrong that won’t be tabbing this team for medal contention. Plus, Miller is motivated after an injury left him on the outside looking in at Torino. Then, Rick DiPietro, Robert Esche and John Grahame, could do little to save the Americans from an embarrassing eighth-place finish.
