5 Things Blues Fans Need to Know About Ryan Miller

2. He doesn't mind a little trash talk.

When Sabres defenseman John Scott called Leafs defenseman Dion Phaneuf a "princess" for getting angry about a bodycheck he endured during a game last November, Miller showed his support by favoriting this tweet.

But Miller doesn't only support mocking opponents in passive-aggressive ways. He can talk his own trash, too, like he did when he called Bruins winger Milan Lucic a "piece of shit" several times.

After getting run over by the burly winger during a 2011 game in Boston, Miller told the Buffalo News what he thought:

"I'm not really going to get into that," Miller said in TD Garden. "I just stuck around because I wanted to say what a piece of shit I think Lucic is. Fifty pounds on me, and he runs me like that? It's unbelievable. Everyone in this city see him as a big, tough, solid player. I respected him for how hard he plays. That was gutless. Gutless. Piece of shit."

Here's what made Miller so mad:

1. The man really likes beanies.

And he apparently wants to carry on the beanie tradition here in St. Louis...

Probably because it isn't remotely relevant to his skills as a hockey player.

What a useless article. I'd like to know more about his skills as, you know, a hockey player, but apparently that isn't something we "need" to know?

Well, he had the "Miller-Time" on the back of his temporary mask in last night's Blues debut, but who knows if it'll be on his permanent STL version. 


Also, tried reading page 3 of your article and got this, wouldn't open, thought you should know just in case it's something on your end:
