Here at PDL we rarely stray into the world of personal rumors and gossip. We thoroughly enjoy breaking down hockey trade rumors when they seem credible, but when it comes to crossing into the pop culture and TMZ side of the sport, we try to keep our distance.  However, this story about Buffalo goaltender Ryan Miller putting his condo up for sale was a bit too juicy to pass up. Miller has reportedly listed his Buffalo townhouse for sale amidst persistent rumors that say his time with the Buffalo Sabres is coming to an end.  Miller might just be looking for a new residence, or looking to find one that allows him to pack up and move quickly if a trade suddenly develops, but when you combine the story about him selling the property he bought in 2006 with reports that claim his "days are numbered" in Buffalo it suddenly looks like all the puzzle pieces are fitting together and pointing to a trade in the near future.  The time is right for the Ryan Miller era to end in Buffalo. The netminder will play in his 500th NHL game when the Sabres take on the New York Islanders to close out their 2013 campaign. All 500 games Miller has appeared in have come with the Sabres, dating back to his debut during the 2002-03 season.  Aside from the convenient milestone, moving Miller out of Buffalo makes a lot of sense for the team. After an extremely disappointing season that will see the team miss out on the playoffs for the second consecutive year, it's become quite obvious that a rebuild is necessary. Turning the page on Miller and the final year of his contract where he is owed $6.25 million is probably a good place to start that rebuilding project. If Miller isn't in the team's long-term plans, which it's pretty clear he isn't, then the club might as well deal him sooner than later and save cash and acquire assets before he can test the open market.  Switching back to the TMZ side of our coverage (forgive us), props to Miller for trying to turn a nice profit on his property. He purchased the townhouse in 2006 for $348,500. Now he's trying to move the property for a price of $659,900. You can learn all about Miller's former pad here, but don't expect to see any exclusive photos as all of those have been kept private.  [follow]
