Ryan Miller was handed an invitation to the 2010 Olympic Camp Aug. 17-19 in Woodridge Illinois, a suburb of Chicago, according to CTVOlympics.ca.
The roster was announced today, and Miller will have company. Boston Bruin Tim Thomas and Jonathan Quick join the Sabre stalwart between the pipes.
The goaltenders bring one question to mind. If these are indeed the goalies headed to the Olympics, who starts?
Miller, arguably, has had the more consistent early career, but Thomas was phenomenal this past season, leading the Bruins to the Eastern Conference title.
One thing's for sure: Team USA, this time around, selected better talent and more accomplished players.
Miller was snubbed out of the Olympics in 2006 when Rick DiPietro headlined a trio that included Robert Esche and John Grahame, both of whom are career backups.
As the article states, this Team USA is a youthful one, with only five players who have prior Olympic experience in their hip pocket.
