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.

The most valuable player at...

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.
