Person familiar with talks tells AP: Sabres still shopping Miller with trade deadline looming

BUFFALO, N.Y. - A person familiar with discussions has told The Associated Press that Buffalo Sabres GM Tim Murray continues to pursue offers for goalie Ryan Miller with the intention of dealing him before the NHL trade deadline on March 5.

The person spoke on the condition of anonymity because Murray did not speak to reporters Monday.

The person said the team's first option is trading Miller, who is in the final year of his contract. Option No. 2, would be making a bid to re-sign Miller if a trade can't be completed.

Miller was a no-show at Sabres practice Monday because the United States backup goalie was travelling from the Sochi Games.

Miller was scheduled to arrive later in the day, and is set to start against the Carolina Hurricanes on Tuesday.

Quote of the Day

I think I'm lucky to be here and you definitely don't take very many things for granted, if you take anything for granted. I definitely put my family and my wife and my close family in perspective, that they're the most important thing in the world. I want to do whatever I can to play hockey, but like I said, under the right circumstances.
