Did anyone else notice last night during the US v. Canada woo-fest that the NBC color man kept referring to Ryan Miller as the "Ex-Spartan Great", the "East Lansing native", the "former Michigan State goalie", and so on? They made mention that he's a Boston Bruin as well, but I don't remember hearing about "former University of Michigan great Jack Johnson" or anything of the like. Not upset, just found it curious. I mean using "Ryan Miller" and "great" in the same sentence is perfectly reasonable because well...obviously.
Niko Porikos grew up in an NTDP billet home. Cool story.
