Puck Drunk Love:
The Buffalo Sabres appear to be accepting the fact that they might have Ryan Miller and Thomas Vanek when training camp begins in a couple of months. Darcy Regier, GM of the Sabres, believes lineups settle down in July and trade talk dies down until training camp.
As a result, Miller and Vanek might be with the Sabres as the team begins their preseason schedule.
In an interview seen on The Buffalo News, Regier commented on the lack of talk surrounding Miller and Vanek. Regier said:
The nature of this business is that as we move through July lineups get more and more settled, there's less movement. Once training camp starts, things begin to change some again.
Regier mentioned that money could be an issue (Shocking, right?). Few teams would be willing to take on Miller's $6.25 million contract or Vanek's $7.14 million contract in a year where the salary cap is dropping to $64.3 million. However, as we approach the 2013-14 season and teams start re...

The name of the game for the Buffalo Sabres is rebuild, rebuild, rebuild. With rebuilding comes shedding salary. The second-largest salary on the Sabres belongs to veteran goalie Ryan Miller. Miller recently sold his Buffalo-area townhouse. His late-season comments last year sounded like a guy who was ready to move on. And frankly, there is no reason for the Sabres...
The Buffalo Sabres have been trying to clear room on their roster but aren’t having any luck making trades. Two of the players they’ve been shopping the most are goalie Ryan Miller and forward Thomas Vanek. Unfortunately no one seems that interested and for one great reason, money.
The conversation then moved to trades, namely those involving Ryan Miller and Thomas Vanek. Regier...
Wow! This is an interesting post from Fantasy Sports Portal. I guess there are a few NHL teams that need scoring and goaltending would probably take these high-end players off of their hand for the right price.
Here we go with another set of the top 20 Sabres of all time. If you missed it, here's part 1.
#15: Ryan Miller- He has made the Sabres top 20 in my mind. In eight seasons with the Sabres, Miller has surpassed 40 wins twice, and would likely have done it a third time if weren't for Scott Gomez.
Miller won the heart of a nation by leading Team USA to the gold medal game...
My top five Buffalo Sabres of all time have been decided. As a few of you mentioned in the comments of my previous post, you pretty much have the five players remaining.
I found it very interesting at the debate between Dominik Hasek and Gil Perreault for #1, and it did make me reconsider my decision.
However, I've now come up with my entire top 20, and here are the...
If you are a Buffalo Sabres fan hearing the name “Ryan Miller” is sure to incite some sort of emotion. Whether it is admiration for all that he has done for the team over the years, or discontent with never advancing past the Eastern Conference Finals, some sort of feelings are conjured up. In past moments of disappointment however, blame was seldom ever squarely placed on Millsie’s...
It's looking more and more like Thomas Vanek and Ryan Miller will be starting the season in Buffalo. Did Regier wait too long? I believe so.
I think the Sabres lost out on trading them simply because many other teams acquired a starting goaltender.
Whether Regier was asking too much for them, or couldn't obtain the right pieces he wanted, the Sabres have waited too...
from Chris Ryndak of Sabres.com,
Starting goaltender Ryan Miller and leading scorer Thomas Vanek are two players that Sabres general manager Darcy Regier said have garnered interest from other teams. Both players are set to become unrestricted free agents at the end of the 2013-14 season.
Regier said it would be fair to assess that, with the way the market is now, it’s...
Narrowing down the top Sabres of all-time isn't easy. Now I'm into the top 10 and it's hard to leave some guys out.
10. Rene Robert- He was never drafted by the NHL, but eventually became a part of the greatest line in Sabres history- The French Connection. Robert was offered a five game tryout with the Toronto Maple Leafs, but he didn't perform well.
Its mid-July, and Thomas Vanek is still a Buffalo Sabre. So is Ryan Miller.
Its looking more and more like both players will be reporting to training camp in Buffalo in mid-September.
On Friday night, Darcy Regier said that its not unusual that there has been very light action this summer on Vanek and Miller. Regier said that its not jus...
Thirty three years ago today, Ryan Miller was born in East Lansing, Michigan.
Happy Birthday, Ryan.
