Ryan Miller didn't like the tone of the NHL labor talks from the outset. He's really fed up now.
In an email to ESPN the Magazine, the Sabres' goaltender blasted the lack of negotiations as the league nears the cancellation of more games.
"I think that a deal is there to be made and recent events lead me to believe the NHL is simply testing us," he wrote. "After they have satisfied their curiosity about the strength of our resolve we will have real negotiating for the first time in this whole debacle.
"The two sides are close enough to a deal that missing the bulk of a season is wrong and missing an entire season is not only insane, it is a blatant disregard for the sport, the fans and the culture we have grown over decades -- just to satisfy egos, not the needs of either side."
Miller, who is in Los Angeles, may start to look for a job overseas.
"If a team needs a goalie, I need to start considering it," he wrote to ESPN.
