"I would like to have at least some say in where I go just because Buffalo is all I've known and I have a life outside of that." - Ryan Miller
With all due respect to the optimists who are big fans of the man who has been the franchise goaltender and face of the Sabres for quite awhile, the above quote doesn't read like a guy who is "not closed off to the possibility" of playing in Buffalo beyond next season.
The netminder of the 2010 USA squad, the one that settled for a silver medal courtesy of Sidney Crosby and a few of his Canadian friends, had a lot to say in an NHL.com piece that came out yesterday, but nothing to alter the plans that the Sabres are making for their roster beyond 2013-14.
Those plans still include Miller playing for a different team. Continue reading "His Interview Changing Nothing, Miller Is As Good As Gone"

from Corey Masisak of NHL.com,
Miller has been the face of the franchise in Buffalo in recent seasons. But the Sabres have committed to a rebuild and general manager Darcy Regier has said publicly that he is open to trading both Miller and top forward Thomas Vanek after moving captain Jason Pominville before the trade deadline last season.
The most valuable player at...
Ryan Miller was simply brilliant at the 2010 Winter Olympics. He put the U.S. in a position to win silver and came within a goal of gold.
The Buffalo Sabres goaltender was named tournament MVP after making 139 saves on 147 shots over six games. Not a bad, little run.
His Olympic journey, however, may have ended there.
Even though he's just 33 years old, potentially in the...
There are many who feel the United States’ goaltending job at the 2014 Winter Olympics is Los Angeles Kings goalie Jonathan Quick‘s to lose. Then there’s Ryan Miller who’s coming into this thing under the impression the job is anyone’s to win.
Team USA kicked off its Olympic orientation camp Monday in Virginia, and Miller — who was between the pipes for the 2010 silver...
Thomas Vanek is looking to silence the trade rumors which have been attached to his name for what seems like an eternity. In an interview with WGR 550, Vanek stated that he hasn't requested a trade from the Buffalo Sabres. In fact, Vanek appears content in Buffalo and is open to the idea of signing a new deal with the Sabres in the future.
No, I never asked to be...
Will Thomas Vanek be a member of the Buffalo Sabres for a while longer or won't he? Inquiring minds want to know.
Since it became clear that the Sabres were finally going to cut bait on some of their more established players and go the rebuilding route -- made clear when Jason Pominville was traded to Minnesota last season -- people have wondered about his future in Buffalo...
This 2013-14 NHL Season Preview features the Buffalo Sabres.
There’s a lot of frustration in Buffalo right now about how the last few years have gone. They have failed to reach the playoffs in each of the last 2 seasons, and their winning percentage has gotten worse in each of the last 4.
Add to that the dilemma of having their two best players be unrestricted free agents at season’s...
Contrary to urban legend and internet hockey fiction, Thomas Vanek never, ever approached Sabres GM Darcy Regier and demanded a trade out of Buffalo. It never happened. I never will happen. Vanek is content to play out the final year of his 7 year, $50 million contract with the Sabres. He and his agent, Steve Bartlett, have been up front and transparent since the end of last season on...
As you, the Buffalo Sabres are in the process of ushering a new core group of young players. You have already heard and know their names. Grigorenko, Girgensons, Armia, Larsson, Enroth, Hackett, Ristolainen, Pysyk, Ruhwedel, McNabb, and Tropp. Sabres GM Darcy Regier began phasing out the the older players at the 2013 NHL trade deadline when he bid adieu to captain Jason Pominville...
