I couldn’t resist… This story caught my eye. This story involves the teammate of Former Fighting Sioux forward Drew Stafford; apparently his all-world goalie Ryan Miller isn’t happy with the team trading away Paul Gaustad. I have also noticed this season that Ryan Miller has become a bit of a complainer. Hockey is a business and sometimes teams trade players to get rid of salary or to better their teams.
ANAHEIM, Calif. — Ryan Miller and Paul Gaustad are the closest of
friends. They’ve been roomates. They’ve traveled through Europe
together. They were teammates for a decade — a run that ended Monday
when the Sabres sent Gaustad to Nashville.
Miller is not happy with the transaction.
“It was a pretty tough day,” Miller said today after practice in
Anaheim Ice. “I’m not going to lie. I’m not real happy about the way it
all turned out. But that’s the business of hockey.
“Like I’ve said, we don’t make those decisions. That’s more proof
because if I had any more influence Paul would still be here. I
appreciate the way he plays. He’s been one of my best friends for a long
time there. Obviously, that’s going to continue, but it was nice to
have him as a teammate and have those other intangibles.”
