With Ryan Miller and Steve Ott gone, Sabres look ahead as more changes loom

BUFFALO, N.Y. - The Buffalo Sabres are moving on without the longtime face of their franchise.

And they know the experience will be anything but ordinary.

"When a guy like Ryan Miller gets traded, that's not a normal player getting traded," interim head coach Ted Nolan said. "He was the face of the organization for a long, long time. To lose a player like him, it's tough."

Tough, yes, but perhaps good practice for a team that could be offloading several more veterans before Wednesday's trade deadline, as general manager Tim Murray continues efforts to fix the NHL's worst team.

Quote of the Day

We want to make sure that whoever makes our team really makes our team by earning it and not putting them in situations where they get preference because of their status as a first-round pick or whatever it might be. That's not going to happen. Everybody has to earn their way on our team.

— Columbus Blue Jackets general manager Jarmo Kekalainen on the team's prospects at development camp
