Can you believe it has been 10 years since Ryan Miller started his first NHL game?
That might depend on how you feel about the Sabres. I think if you have been miserable with their existence, the years kind of drag, but when you are happy, well, time flies when you're having fun, as dorks say.
For me, it has been...kind of a fog.
I've had so many ups and downs with Miller. It really feels like a real relationship.
Strangely, I don't recall many specific Miller memories from 2006-2009. I think it's because the post-lockout teams were so good with so many star players. He didn't exactly stand out from the group for me. Then the 23/48 debacle happened and for the next two seasons, I kind of hated the team because of ownership and the lame runs to 10th place. Then the Olympic year happened. That's when Miller started to stand out for me.
In some ways, I love the guy. I like that he's articulate and really thinks about what he's saying when he answers a question. ...
