Ryan Miller might be odd-goalie out at Sochi Games after helping Americans win silver in 2010

ARLINGTON, Va. - Ryan Miller says it's a wide-open competition among six goaltenders hoping to earn three spots on the U.S. hockey team for the Sochi Games.

That may be bad news for him.

Miller was MVP of the hockey tournament at the Winter Olympics in 2010, when he helped the U.S. win silver. He has struggled to have success since then for the Buffalo Sabres.

Los Angeles Kings goalie Jonathan Quick is the favourite to be the No. 1 goalie for the Americans.

Jimmy Howard of the Detroit Red Wings, Craig Anderson of the Ottawa Senators and Cory Schneider of the New Jersey Devils might get the other two roster spots. John Gibson, a 20-year-old prospect, was also invited to this week's camp, but isn't expected to make the team.

Quote of the Day

There's no discouragement in that room. There's no issues there at all to be honest with you. It's more about, 'Hey, it's opportunities for players.' And if we become that bad of a team because of one player, it's not a real good sign for our hockey club. So this is part of sports. It's part of hockey.
