Ryan Miller (Detroit Red Wing 2014-2015) ???
I just noticed that only ONE thread in the goalie forum has posts this November. Damn... it's November 5th!
So, here's some Coffee Talk.
In the summer of 2014, Ryan Miller will sign a contract to be the starting goalie for the Detroit Red Wings.
*Summer 2013 - Jimmy Howard's contract ends with the Detroit Red Wings. Without Nick Lidstrom & Brad Stuart, the Wings fail to make the playoffs in the 2012-2013 shortened season. As the back-up with no pressure, the Monster Jonas Gustavsson plays well enough in his 9-games with the club. The Wings look elsewhere in net & decide, let Jimmy Howard go, and go with Jonas Gustavsson be their #1 goalie for 2013-2014.
*Summer 2013 - The Wings sign Drew Miller to a 2-year, $3million extension. Nobody thinks anything about this.
*Summer 2014 - Jonas Gustavsson struggled in his full year with the Wings. Again, Detroit realizes that he is not the answer and look elsewhere.
*July 2, 2014 - The Red Wings sign Ryan Miller to a 5-year, $30million deal. Says Ryan Miller "I'm happy to join the Wings organization. I grew up here in Michigan and my whole family has played at Michigan State. It's great to join such a solid franchise and skate with my brother Drew. Hopefully we can mirror the success of the Staal brothers in Carolina."
