Patrick Roy, on video not too long ago, saying Ryan Miller is his favorite current NHL goalie...
I was alerted to this video last night, one where Patrick Roy is asked who his favorite current goalie in the NHL is by an interviewer. Ryan Miller was first on the list, followed by Carey Price.
Definitely, it adds a little intrigue to the rumors of Miller possibly being eyed in trade by the Avs.
I'm off the clock right now, so don't have a ton of info. (I get a little time off every year, and this is the time, so don't hate people). But I will say this: this trade - Miller for Stastny - would surprise me. Miller is in the last year of a contract and will want huge money next year. He's in his 30s and his stats are getting a little worse every year. The Avs would obviously be giving up on Semyon Varlamov if they do this deal - and I would have to believe he'd be traded as well.
Of course, Paul Stastny's stats have been getting a little worse every year too, and he's also in the last year of his big-money deal. In some ways, the trade makes sense on paper - two teams getting something for a player they may not want to re-sign after this year - and in other ways it doesn't. What they're getting is the same kind of situation.
Anyway, here's the video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=d-_LAVv1OCs
