Who does Team USA start at Goalie in Sochi? Which of their wives wins Smokesmash?

1. RYAN MILLER

6-2 175 7/17/1980 L East Lansing, Mich. Buffalo Sabres

Miller has an impressive .926 save percentage this year, but surprisingly, it’s just .928 at even strength. He has 24 quality starts in 36 games, or an excellent 66.7 percent. His great reputation in the shootout is backed by a very good career save percentage of .708.Miller has an impressive .926 save percentage this year, but surprisingly, it’s just .928 at even strength.

2. JONATHAN QUICK

6-1 218 1/21/1986 L Milford, Conn. Los Angeles Kings

Image

Quick has a roughly league-average .917 save percentage but a solid .931 at even strength. He has 16 quality starts in 28 games, or a decent 57.1 percent. His career save percentage in the shootout is a very good .705.

3. JIMMY HOWARD

6-0 218 3/26/1984 L Ogdensburg, N.Y. Detroit Red Wings

Image

Howard has a roughly league-average .916 save percentage this year, including .923 at even strength. He has 16 quality starts in 29 games, or 55.2 percent. His career save percentage in the shootout is a very good .699. By: Rob Vollman

First of all, I can’t stand Jonathan Quick for being on the LA Kings, so I would never vote for him. And he was such a baby squid in the playoffs against the Sharks last season, bitching to the refs the entire series. Hatred aside, Quick plays behind one of the best defenses in the NHL and his glove hand isn’t all that strong. Teams score on Quick when they get the puck off the ice.

Howard is a solid goalie too, but he’s said to be too aggressive at times, while consistency is another problem for him. He’s known to give up goals on his blocker side too often, but I see Howard as the future goalie of Team USA.

I say we go with Ryan Miller. Miller was an absolute beast in Vancouver in 2010. We may have lost (fuck sid the kid), but Miller won the MVP. His experience under the big lights in the Vancouver Olympics as well as his consistency and high saving percentage earns him the starting spot in Sochi. Oh, and lets not forget his flow…

Talk about some serious hockey flow. Well done Ryan. Well done.

Now onto their wives Smokesmash…

    I agree with going with Miller. He carried the team in 2010 to the final game.
