Ryan Miller’s days of injury complaints are nearly at an end

By now you’ve had your fill of hearing about Ryan Miller having a concussion, not having a concussion and voicing his displeasure with everything Lucic. Don’t worry fans, he’ll be back on the ice soon enough.

Mike Harrington of The Buffalo News notes from this morning’s practice that Miller was taking shots and minor league call-up Drew McIntyre was nowhere to be seen. With McIntyre on his way back to Rochester, that leaves Miller and Jhonas Enroth as the only goalies in town.

Getting Miller healthy and back to action is important given Buffalo’s struggles of late. Buffalo’s lost six of its last nine dating back to when Miller was run out of town against Boston. With two of three wins coming against teams that have since fired their coach, you could say Buffalo needs to turn it around.

Easier said than done, however, as the Sabres face the Red Wings tomorrow night at home followed by games in Nashville and at home against Philly.

    Had so much respect for this guy after what he did in Oympics. Lost so much of it with his whining and acting all, well, Vancouvery. Such a talent but you cannot be in this league and never expect to be hit, even if you’re a goalie.

    I sincerely doubt Miller’s complaining days are over. He still has to face Boston.
