From Pierre LeBrun of ESPN.com, a piece that’s gotten Ryan Miller both good and bad reviews in Buffalo today…
The goalie always gets heat. ... I don’t blame fans or media for talking about hockey; it is fun to be passionate about the game. I try not to pay attention because, unless you have played goalie in the NHL, I don’t think anyone can understand what it is like to stand in there and be one of us, to put yourself out there every night. This year, a lot of opinion I normally avoid or ignore was dragged into the locker room by the media, and I took it hard. But I kept working and searching for my comfort level. I finally remembered I love to play and I am not doing it for what people outside the locker think about me. I’m doing it because I love hockey and I love to win. I love making saves and being on a team. I love the challenge.
