NHL trade rumors: Ryan Miller trade needs to be "proper"

Rick Stewart

You have to give new Sabres GM Tim Murray credit: he doesn't beat around the bush. Last night, before their 2-1 win against the Carolina Hurricanes, Murray made it clear that the Sabres were dealing Ryan Miller.

Duh.

Full Deadline Coverage

"The route we are looking at is to get value for him. To put him in a position to succeed. Our goal right now is to pursue a proper trade," Murray told reporters before the Sabres' game at Carolina, Buffalo TV station WKBW reported.

Murray has a week to trade Miller, who started Tuesday in the NHL's first post-Sochi game. The GM said between two and 10 teams have asked about Miller, who can become an unrestricted free agent after the season.

Between ten and two teams? That's a wide window. Miller and Murray have a week before the NHL Trade Deadline to make up their mind as to what team will be the goaltender's new home. The Sabres are in a rebuild, so Murray will be looking for quality parts in exchange for his netminder, who is a UFA in July. Miller'll be going to the team that gives up the most - what other squad needs a rental goalie to get over that hump into the playoffs?
