Ryan Miller And His Father

from Iain MacIntyre of the Vancouver Sun,

There was a shoulder to cry on if he wanted one late Monday, but all Ryan Miller needed was his dad’s ear.

“Last night we were up for an hour talking about every goal,” Dean Miller said Tuesday. “Everything.”

Ryan Miller allowed five goals on 18 shots in the Vancouver Canucks’ 5-3 loss to the Minnesota Wild and was hooked for the fourth time this season — one game after a 31-save 5-0 win against the Pittsburgh Penguins.

Turns out it is a good thing Dean Miller is here, along with many other dads on the National Hockey League team’s fathers-and-sons trip.

Ryan Miller always has a lot on his mind. Following his first pre-season game in Vancouver after signing a three-year, $18-million-US contract with the Canucks, Miller answered a question by talking about the rain that day and its affect on humidity and ice conditions inside Rogers Arena. We weren’t sure initially if Miller was joking. He was not.

The 34-year-old American is hyper-analytical.
