haha alright let me put this thing to rest. In the hockey world you are what's called a fanboy. I don't mean it to be disrespcetful, but more of a reality check because I realize that you love being a contrarian on here and I want to help you. When I say fanboy, I mean you watched the olympics last year, got really exicted and caught up in watching the US advance to the gold medal game, and decided then and there that you thought ryan miller was the best goalie in the world. At the time, you still would not have been right. Miller played well in the olympics, but more than anything the US won because people underestimated the strength of some of our grinder forwards like backes, kesler, and parise.
As far as the "argument" that you're making to support this conviction, you're telling me that Miller is a top 3 goalie and giving me no reason other than the fact that you think youre right and you think im wrong. Youre taking each point I make and saying it's wrong, but not giving me a reason. It's like arguing with somebody that believes in creationsim, like I understand that you think Ryan Miller is awesome, but its a two way street here. Why is he so good? Is it because he's in the middle of the pack in every statistical category for goalies? Is it because he hasn't been the same player in the NHL since his team won the presidents' trophy in 07-08? I mean, you gotta give me something to work with here besides your comparison to halak, which im sorry to tell you doesnt work because halak didnt play until the end of the season last year, and people knew he would be good. Youve got a lot of spunk, cuse, but unfortunately your lack of knowledge tends to undermine the points that you feel really strongly about, and this would not be the first time. Maybe the bottom line here is that it will take more than one bad season from Miller for your subconscious to convince itself that your favorite goalie isnt as good as he used to be, but I dont have time to wait that long.
