    Miller
    GP: 19
    Wins:13
    GAA: 2.19
    SV%: .924

    Drafted 7th round 205th overall.

    Lundqvist
    GP: 30
    Wins:17
    GAA: 2.19
    SV%: .924

    Drafted 7th round 205th overall.

    These guys seem identical. As a ranger fan I've seen Lundqvist all year. Very rarely seen Miller play. Who is better? I also find it ironic they were drafted in the same draft position.

    LOL

    That is ironic. They are both Star goalies in this league. So far the nod goes to Lundqvist with the team he is playing behind and the big game experience in the Swedish Elite League.

    However I do not wish to take anything away from Ryan Miller. He is an excellent goaltender and will be an all-star in the future.

    Miller is supported by a better team defence, but that doesn't take anything away from him. He's an aggressive goalie that excels in one on one situations. I'd rank him as one of the top five shootout goalies in the NHL right now.

    whoa, both these guys were 7th rounders? :eek:

    These are two very good goalies. If the standings hold up, we might see them face each other in the first round of the playoffs in the East. Would be a goaltending duel for sure.

    You obviously copied that from TSN.ca's rookie watch because I haven't seen that error anywhere else.

    Ryan Miller went in the 5th round, 138th overall in the 1999 draft.

    OOoooouuh, good one.

    Lundqvist has been amazing so far, but Miller's coming on really strongly. And don't think Buffalo plays a stingy defensive game, Miller's just been that good (combined with Biron, our goaltending is certainly one of our strong points this season).

    I'm gonna say, right now, Miller = Lundqvist... With Lundqvist possibly having more of an upside. :dunno:
     
  7. Ok since it's been noted that the draft position isn't the same, are the goals against average and save % the same? That seems like another big coincidence.

    i would agree, and i really like Miller too. He's gonna be USA's #1 guy in the nets real soon. :D

    no, its correct. 2.19 and .924

    one difference to note though. Henke has 2 SO's, Miller 0.

    Miller is not in Henke's league and will never be.

    As good as Miller is, I'll take Lundqvist over him every chance I get.

    I'm sure Buffalo fans might say the same thing about Miller over Lundqvist.

    Very even. Hank is younger than Miller?...I did not know that.

    They are both quality goalies with bright futures. At the moment I give a slight edge to Lundqvist.

    I think that's the most ignorant comment i've seen all day today, and coming from a Leafs fan, i'm not too suprised.

    I think both are very good and both will be leading their teams into the playoffs. I can't say who i think is better, because i'd be biased towards Miller, but whoever is better, the other won't be too far behind that is for sure.

    I don't take much consideration to that. Moreso to the fact that Miller is already accustumed to the NA game far more than Lundqvist is. And that makes Lundqvist more impressive.

    Miller is the next Brodeur, I don't care what anyone says.

    It's MILLERTIME.

    Bias aside, I truly believe before season's end it will be clear who the better tender is. It will be Miller.

    Not even the great Ryan Miller could stone Tie Domi in the pre-season though.

    Domi > Miller
