Name me ONE shift in ANY game in which he took it off? Bet you can't do it!

He is playing great! If you would have told me that he'd be leading Zetterberg in scoring at this point I would have never guessed it! But good for Drew, he earns the minutes he gets.

Does making a horrific defensive zone turnover that leads directly to a goal count? ;)


EDIT: Tongue-in-cheek doesn't work on this board, eh?

"If I can be totally honest, it's not a lot of guys you get impressed by. Actually, it's no one else but him. From the bench, to see what move he makes -- you're like, 'I wish I could do that.' Sometimes you sit on the bench and just think, 'wow,' and you look over to the other bench and they sit there and shake their heads, too. He has great, great skills. I'm probably not going to play with another player who has the kind of skills he has." Mikael Samuelsson on Pavel Datsyuk

There is a difference between making a mistake and not playing hard.

Miller Bros

It's the first time since Oct. 10, 1973, that brothers accounted for a winning goal and a shutout on the same night.

Phil Esposito completed a hat trick with the go-ahead goal for Boston in a 6-4 season-opening victory for the Bruins at Vancouver. Down the West Coast in Los Angeles, brother Tony Esposito stopped all 25 shots he faced as the Chicago Blackhawks beat the Los Angeles Kings 3-0.
"Pain or damage don't end the world. Or despair, or f***in beatin's. The world ends when you're dead. Until then you got more punishment in store.Stand it like a man, and give some back."

I for one have been critical on the guy...So far this season he's got me eating crow; his solid 2-way play will ensure him a spot when Eaves returns.

I was always in the "we don't need both Eaves and Miller!" party, and I was also in the "keep Eaves, ditch Miller!" party, and the "I don't hate Miller, BUT..." party.

Glad Holland and company know just a tad bit more about this sport than I do. :thumbup:


Miller has been huge for us, playing very well on that third line and creating a ton of the chances himself. The great thing about a guy like Miller is that if injuries ever occur to the forward group, he can be slotted into almost any line and fill the void needed. A very versatile player. Keep up the good work!

When he goes on to score the next goal? Yeah, I think it can be forgiven.

Pretty much it.

As long as mistakes like that aren't the norm and the player is giving the effort, I'm rarely going to go nuts on a guy for making a mistake or brainfart. Happen to pretty much everybody.

Miller is not overly physical and will never be a 30-goal scorer but he busts his rear end pretty much every play which is his most important quality for this team.

Good to see him get rewarded on the stat sheet some lately.

I have a theory: With every goal, he adds a little pigment to his hair
He really wants to look like a normal 28 year old man, that's why he's playing so motivated right now!

Good rule of thumb is always take an octopus everywhere. Better to have one and not need it than find yourself thinking, "Damn, I wish I had that octopus".

I started turning grey when I was 16- before Drew was born.

He is really doing well this season. He and Helm and Abby have been great. You can never have too much depth.

I love this dude. I have all but decided that the next hamster will be Drew.

Money on the board:  Current total: $6

$1 for a goal by any current Wing after whom I have named a hamster.  An additional $5 for a series-clinching goal scored by any current Wing after whom I have named a hamster. $5 if the other team fails to score against a current Wing goalie after whom I have named a hamster.

Hamsters I have had:  (current Wings highlighted)

Henrik Pavel Tomas Nicklas Dominik

Niklas Matthew Daniel Robert

Johan Andreas Valtteri Jonathan

Andrew Patrick Ian Todd

Jordin Damien Gustav James
