Even in a quick tournament like the 2014 Olympics, head coaches reserve the right to rotate goalies, so this doesn’t guarantee that Dan Bylsma is going with Quick over Miller in the grand scheme of things. Still, plenty of people will read it as such.
Miller, 33, put together an MVP performance in the 2010 Olympics to guide the U.S. to a silver medal. Quick, 28, won the Conn Smythe Trophy on his way to a Stanley Cup victory in 2011-12. As far as this season goes, Miller has the better individual numbers while Quick holds the superior win-loss record.
