Gonna show clips of every "miller" shutout in his career.

Is this supposed to be funny?

What In the world are they going to do from 6pm-7:30?

It feels weird. Like are they having the ceremony, then player warmups, then the 20 minute break then the game?  Ooof.

Coming into the GDT, in which the Sabres are celebrating one of their own, only to piss all over him is certainly a choice.  Not a very enlightened one, that’s for sure. 

Yes, judging by Miller's behavior while a member of the Sabres, these comments might make him cry

Does Ryan Miller deserve his own special night?

Great dude, average goalie IMO.

I wouldn’t have retired the dude’s number, if you are going to retire any number at all, for me you do that if you can’t reasonably see someone surpassing their accomplishments, so why bother giving them a shot at living up to the number. Hello Hasek. 

But he was a very good goalie, one of the best we’ve ever add, he’s deserving of a special night for sure. 

I can only assume your “average” lingo is hyperbolic, there isn’t really a reading of the stats that gets to that conclusion 

As for the eye test, he was a fundament piece during the 2 seasons that make the rest of this dearth worth living through

They're retiring his number?!   Wow, OK.    

He had 2 very good seasons with Buffalo.   Went 15W-22L his final season with the Sabres.  Played half of his career elsewhere.

Never made it to the Cup Finals.    Won a single Vezina Trophy.

That's quite the low bar to have your number retired.   I don't get it.

This is the same franchise that retired 16 and 18.  You should be used to the low bar.

Relative to the standard set by looking at what numbers have been retired around the NHL, it is a bar he clears with ease.

The Sabres are hardly unusual.

This discussion should not be in this thread.

Sabres will be criticized for the response, no matter what it is.

It was a decade ago people, and has nothing to do with the success or lack thereof of the current team, no matter how much you want it to.

The Miller hit lives rent free in the heads of everyone who wants a line brawl and pines for us to draft tall ppl.

Not on tv so no game for me. 

I’ll be following along in thread for balanced and unbiased coverage

If we win you'll hear about how great the team is. Fast, young, sky's the limit. 

If we lose you'll hear about how we're figure skaters who are not mean enough.

I thought BRAWNDO was the “spoiler alert” guy. Thanks a lot chief

The Miller ceremony is covered on ESPN+ at 6:00, I am on it and it shows nothing 

 

the game is at 730 or 700.  What is correct?  
 

also have intermittent Wi-Fi so I might not see it 😞
