Phillip MacCallum/Getty ImagesThis has been a frustrating season so far for Ryan Miller and the Sabres.An NHL scout who has seen the Buffalo Sabres enough to realize something isn't right about this season's group was asked about their franchise goalie, Ryan Miller. Miller was yanked Monday night in the Detroit Red Wings' 5-0 win over the Sabres, Buffalo's ninth consecutive road loss.
"I don't see the fire. There's just not the same fire," the scout observed. "I don't see that in him like I did a couple years ago."
