the testament to price's success is the age in which he began playing in the nhl.
you could argue every statistic that you would like, but when carey finishes with more career wins than miller, you can't really use "by that age miller wasn't playing in the nhl." , because if he could have he would have
i'm not going to debate on a team that has never won anything and never will because their management consistently ships out their best players. If i was a Sabres fan, i would have stopped being one a long time ago, because your management cares 0 about winning, and the city you live in means free agents generally will never want to sign there.
Yes, if he could have played in the NHL he would have. Forget the fact that he grew up in East Lansing, Michigan (the same town that MSU is in) and it was his lifelong dream to play at Michigan State. I'm sure that had nothing to do with him choosing to go to college instead of go pro at 17. You probably also forgot that in college Miller set an NCAA record with 26 career shutouts and was the winner of the Hobey Baker Award in 2001, when he led the country in wins, winning percentage, save percentage (an NCAA record .950 mark), goals-against average and shutouts (an NCAA record 10). Not saying playing in college is anywhere near playing in the NHL, but his dominance in college play was pretty staggering, especially considering MSU plays in one of the best NCAA divisions for hockey, but I wouldn't expect you to know anything about that.
As to the testament to Price's success being the age in which he began playing in the NHL, it's probably just as likely that this year is a fluke, given his past failures. Also, if it was such a testament to how great he was at such a young age, why was he sharing the work load? He's also only 23 years old, so unless he keeps up this one year's pace for the next 7, I doubt he'll finish his career with more wins than Miller. Besides that, are you really arguing for a hypothetical future statistic? That's a tad pathetic, and you sound like a 12 year old.
Your arguments about the Sabres are irrelevant, and if anything, just proves my point that Miller's stats this year are not a testament to his ability as an individual. I found it pretty funny that you started a comment on the Sabres with "I'm not going to debate on..." though. Nice strategy.
I'm not going to comment on your intelligence, but you seem like a real fucking imbecile.
Congratulations on Price's one good year. I smell Hall of Fame!
