After a lengthy bout with laryngitis (not ideal for a radio broadcaster), I’m looking forward to the holidays. Something tells me the Buffalo Sabre players are, as well.
I can’t remember the last time a hockey team was lambasted like the Sabres have been over the past 11 days. That’s probably because I can’t remember the last time a team’s star goaltender got run over by a charging forward, only to have the goalie’s teammates stand by idly, watching the guilty player escorted away from the fray with a smile on his face.
Granted, Ryan Miller isn’t having a stand out season, but he’s still one of the elite netminders in the game. He’s a consummate professional, and in many ways, he’s the face of the Buffalo franchise. And even though Jhonas Enroth is a more than capable replacement, the fact that Milan Lucic was allowed to steamroll a Vezina Trophy winner with no consequence is a disturbing development.
