Ryan Millers Days Are Numbered In Buffalo
Through thick and thin, Ryan Miller has been the Buffalo Sabres go-to guy. There are some rumblings that might change, though.
During the first intermission of Tuesdays Vancouver Canucks-Columbus Blue Jackets game, Sportsnets Nick Kypreos reported that Millers days are numbered in Buffalo.
The concept of moving Miller probably seems outrageous because there are many times when he appears to be one of the only bright spots for a fledgling Sabres squad.
Still, hes not getting any younger at 32 and the team might want to shed his $6.25 million cap hit if theyre not a contender with him, anyway. Millers current deal expires after 2013-14, making his departure easier to stomach if the front office doesnt feel confident about his future with the team and simplifying a trade because he lacks an albatross contract.
Do note that the Sabres are unlikely to confirm such a rumor whether theres some truth to it or not so well just have to wait and see (and imagine interesting hypothetical destinations).
