Murray says "a couple teams" have shown interest in Miller
Sabres general manager Tim Murray joined Schopp & The Bulldog Thursday and the topic quickly turned to goaltender Ryan Miller. While updating Miller's status Murray said, "His status at this point is he's a Buffalo Sabre. I've had talks with a couple teams, they've shown some interest, they haven't done anything yet to change that scenario." As to who those couple teams might be, Renaud LaVoie of TVA sports tweeted the following:
Couple of sources are telling me the Wild and Capitals are looking at the possibility of acquiring Ryan Miller. #sabres#nhl
Murray says "a couple teams" have shown interest in Miller
Please enter your comments below.
My sources told me they were Anaheim and St Louis.
This is a slightly above average goaltender over the course of his entire career. Stats do not lie! For all of you Miller lovers please understand that he is just that,average, now ask yourselves what kind of player he will be in 3 years when the Sabres are competitive again and he is 36 years old. Trade him NOW! Get some prospects and also move on from Stafford, Tallinder, McBain, Moulson, Sulzer and Ott (even though I love Ott). We need to load up on young talent and suffer through another year and go for it in 2015-16
With this defense it does not matter what goalie is in net. The opposition is going to score. Tradfe Miller now before he is too long in the tooth and we can not get anything. Acquire a defeseman or two or some top round picks. Maybe package Pysyk and Myers with him. We might be able to get a case of beer for those two stars!
Miller for Ovechkin?
Best Goalie for the best goal scorer? Seems fair to me ;).
deal him already.
Do you really think the Wild would deal for Miller? Their payroll is outta sight and I don't see them doing another first rounder. Also they're supposedly after Vanek...they can't afford him either
Trade him, but understand your wins will disappear.
It is the way to go and I must say that while he is a really good goalie, he is not the best in the NHL even if he's played this season like he is. The Sabres, however, do need to make a move and maximize the return on Miller so now be the last chance for that to occur.
Miller take that change.
You do not own this club anything. this is your career nobody else. We know you don't want to leave buffalo like that. but when you know that they are going to be at the bottom next season. Why put yourself in more misery. You know miller a bum type mess. Anyway you might as well move on. Because the rest of them are up and out of here. Hey here the idea of the day. let paul and schoop play. schoop can take miller place. and paul can be ot or manning. Oh i forgot we are talkin about football. wrong again paul we are talking about hockey. We sure gots some experts at wgr lol.
Deal him for his own mercy!
Miller deserves better as this team is 3-4 years away from being good since we have so many bad players that Darcy assembled. Too bad Pegula did not listen to the fans at the very beginning or we would not be in this ugly place.
Get rid of all of them and start from scratch
I don't want to see him traded but if you can improve the team,do it.Just get a player of equal value!
Trade Miller, Trade Myers, Trade a couple other defensemen. As much as I'd hate to see Ott go, trade him. Trade Moulson. There's no way he'll sign here anyway. Get another 1st round pick or two. Use those 1st round picks to draft some actual goal scorers and a true stay-at-home, lockdown defenseman. Keep Pysyk, as he's also showing signs of growing into a great defensemen. But, having said that, there isn't a player on this team who isn't trade bait now. Bring a veteran, either through trade or free agency, that's on his way out and won't command a lot on the market to provide some leadeship in the absence of Ott. Know that the team is going to lose A LOT of games again next year. Get a high first round pick again next year. Expect to be bad for another 2-3 years as young players grow into the NHL. And keep Nolan. Say what you want about him but he knows how to instill work ethic in his teams. That's how a rebuild works.
no worse off
miller is average at best.he has the drive and desire but i dont think he was ever one of the best.with the exception of the two olympic years. doesnt that bother anyone else that this guy picks it up for his country but not the team that pays him. trade him he should have been traded last year. if enroth knows miller is gone im pretty sure his game will get back to where it was. the last two seasons he has had better numbers then miller,more than half of the goalies in the league had better numbers than miller. he has always been overated,regier overvalued his players
re: Trade him, but understand your wins will disappear.
Oh GEE! DOes that mean will be in LAST PLACE!!???
Oh boy, we wouldn't want that... My opinion is... save yourself; stop the DRUGS NOW!
What's the holdup???
YOU JUST DON'T OR WON'T GET IT...
NHL insiders all know that MR SOFTEE is... just THAT. She's proved over and over again; ie: massive PLAYOFF chokes against Ottawa and Philadephia. The facts ARE that "average or slightly above average" goalies are a dime a dozen and a helluva lot LESS EXPENSIVE than this HORRIFICALLY OVERRATED "ELITE ONE". No wonder Murray has to say things like "a couple of teams" are interested. What should he say... NO INTEREST IN THIS CANCER???? Walmart either "gives" MR SOFTEE away or EATS him. This is the legacy at "the biggest nickel and dime loOser franchise in pro sport" You gotta love wallowing in DEAD LAST!!!
re: Miller for Ovechkin?
LOLLOLOL!!! Barfalo fans are delusional!! LOLLOL!!!!
please mr gm do something already. you say thers intrest so get off the pot and do something already
miller and more
please mr murry do something already. or are you all talk like the last gm? we know mr pagulla doesn't have a clue.
to mr. t murry do nothing since you have been sabres gm.
why is drew Stafford and matt do nothing ellis still with buffalo sabres?
Miller and Moulson to Pens
Makes complete sense to send Miller and Moulson to Pittsburgh... Pens need a proven goalie in clutch games (Miller) and need to have some offensive help also after they send Malkin to Buffalo!
Bylsma will even get to coach his new/future player for couple weeks during Olympics.
miller over fluery?
even though fluery had a couple bad playoffs he still has a cup i would not start miller over fluery. at this point murray is best holding out for best deal he can get. and if he does play and have a good olympics then maybe we get more. i dont think miller is good enough to win a cup he cracks under pressure with the exception of olympics,and even that crosby ot goal was ???
Murray is betting Miller has a great run @ Sochi so he can max out on Miller @ the trade deadline, but if Miller blows up or get hurt it's SOL for Murray. Miller deserves to be dealt to a cup contender, I can't say the same for any of the other studs on this hapless team
RE: MILLER AND MOULSON TO PENS!!! LOLLOLLOL!!!!
There's no doubt about it years of "WALMART CONDITIONING" has Barfalo fans DELUSIONAL!!! Such CACAPHONY!!!
just like Hasek, he'll leave and win a cup. great
Miller and Enroth
If your going start fresh you should get read of them both. You get a good in trade and you bring up Hackett.
u have to wait dummys
changes r coming,when guys like weber are not in the lineup then you know the sabres want to win for now it is about the draft picks,that why we have the hard workers in the lineup,short on talent but never quit,u need some of them but we have too many right now,but thats ok ,its about the draft 2014,2015! this is how u tank a season or two for the greater good-ok class dismissed!
Re: u have to wait dummys
OK Darcy. Another 15 years??? Meet the new boss...same as the old boss. WHO you kidding?
No he won't. Hasek was elite...Miller is average. There's a difference there. Miller won't win a cup. He wilts in huge games.
