BUFFALO, N.Y.-Ryan Miller backstopped the Sabres to a 3-2 win over Carolina Tuesday night at the First Niagara. Miller picked up two assists along with making 36 saves to lead the Sabres to the win.
After the game Miller discussed the remarks made by Sabres general manager Tim Murray before the game. Murray said the Sabres are pursuing a trade for Miller who has spent his entire NHL career with the Sabres.
Miller said "I just discussed the time frame. I'm going to be 34 year this and let's be realistic. There's only a handful of guys who played effectively into their 30's and I'd like to be one of those guys but there are no guarantees. I'm not going to close anything off. Maybe as we go through there are some things that change here but the things that their going to have to do are going to come during the trade deadline and maybe I'm one of them. I don't want to close anything off right now but I know they're looking around for opportunities and I think that's probably best for everybody."
Miller said he's just going to prepare to play hockey. "I love this area, the fans have always been great and I feel at home in this community, a lot of friends so enjoy that. If it happens that I'm traded I'm preparing to play somewhere else."
