Maybe the world will end on December 21, 2012 after all. We finally get an owner with a big heart and deep pockets, and now it's looking very likely there will be a reduced schedule, or maybe not one at all. Since chances of an NHL lockout are not just a faraway prospect but something real and impending, we take a look at what some of the players on the Buffalo Sabres are thinking and doing, with an irreverent bent of course. Presenting... 'The Lockout Diaries'.

Stay tuned after the jump as we look at how Ryan Miller is coping, with a few excerpts from his diary.

"Why are people googling my wife's feet?! She can't skate for nuts. They should be googling for MY feet! I love it whenever Harry Neale says I have the quickest feet among all goalies. "


"Speaking of Harry Neale, I heard he got demoted from the commentary box, I should send him a fruit basket. Actually, he IS a fruit basket. "

"Seriously, if I hear that 'Somebody I Used To Know' song one more time at home, the wife will become somebody I used to know. "

"Noureen took me out to the Roseanne Roast last night. Wow that woman is scary. Roseanne, not Noureen. Actually both. "

"Going to have to go down to the Anger Management set. Don't like how that Charlie Sheen has been eyeing the missus the last couple of episodes of the season. "

"Went to the set today. For a drug-addled old bozo Charlie sure lays a mean shoulder check. Where's Goose when you need him? Robyn? Patty? Anyone?? "

"What is she reading? 'Fifty Shades of Grey'? What the heck is that about? We just watched 'The Grey' the other day. Is it about the movie? Wait, can't be.. she keeps giggling every few pages. Liam Neeson is a lot of things, but he's not funny. Hmm. "

"Ahh, mirror mirror on the wall.. who's got the quickest feet of them all?! "

"So I'm the highest ranked goalie in NHL13? About time!! Why am I not on the damn cover though?!"
