Miller, Ott to make Blues debuts against Coyotes tonight

After the big trade between the Sabres and Blues on Friday, St. Louis fans are about to get their first look at their new players tonight in Glendale.

Ryan Miller will start in goal and Steve Ott will open on a line with Derek Roy and T.J. Oshie as the Blues face the Coyotes. Curiously enough, Roy and Ott were traded for each other back in July 2012.

As for what it looks like to see Miller in St. Louis gear, feast your eyes on this:

He sure looks ready to start a new chapter of his career. If you’re wondering if Miller will wear No. 30 with his new team, that’s a definitive “no.”

Ott will wear 29, the number he wore with the Dallas Stars. He was 9 in Buffalo.

    Gonna be happy they left Buffalo, with all the Pat Lafontaine stuff there. From a long life Sabre fan.

    I remember reading a while back that Miller wanted 39, but the Sabres wouldn’t give it to him cause it’s “unofficially retired.” He did wear 39 everywhere else in his career.

    AND HE CAN SING TOO !

    In all seriousness, there are two questions here which I simply don’t get …

    1) just what in the hell are the Blues doing ?

    2) how exactly does Miller merit all this ‘messiah-styled’ praise ?

    What I do know however is that for a while there, we Kings had the Blues on our radar as a ‘potential’ obstacle in terms of us repeating this year. Well suffice it to say, that’s definitely ‘not’ the case any longer ! :)

    GO COYOTES GO !!! … CRUSH MILLER AND THE BLUES !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

        So does that mean Roberto Luongo has jumped all the way to 27 on your list, or that you’re just terrified of the Blues having a better goalie than yours?

      I knew a Shinda was popular, but this is out of control. Bhangra music and blomfeld I would never have guessed…

    Yeah how did Quick do in Sochi? Miller led USA to a silver, Quick didn’t medal.

    And Miller shouldn’t have gotten #39 in Buffalo, that belongs to Hasek…one of the best goalies in NHL history…and one of Buffalo’s best athletes ever, ranking among the French Connection and Jim Kelly.

      Surprised 39 isn’t retired in STL… Kelly Chase lol.

      (Oh and a HOF’er named Doug Weight)

    I don’t think miller is better than quick but the blues offense and special teams are better. So quick can be the top goalie but it takes a team to win.
