      Forum-specific Rules   07/11/2017

      These are board specific rules for the Trades and Rumors forum designed to provide organization and a better experience for everyone. Please review these rules before posting new threads. 
        THREAD ETIQUETTE   1. Please search for an existing thread before posting. This forum can be very fast moving, so it's understandable if redundant threads are inadvertently posted. In such a case, please use the report feature to request removal of redundant threads.    2. Provide a clearly identifiable topic title so that users can readily understand the content. The title should include any and all teams involved, as well as player names or other personnel involved as appropriate.   3. All trades, signings, rumors and other news MUST include a linkable source. Simply posting the name of the source is not enough. Effort should also be made to copy and paste the full article, or at the very least the relevant portion of text from the source to the first post of the thread. Moderators may remove low-quality threads in favour of high-quality threads. 

      Affixed to the front of your title should be a label that identifies the type of transaction that is taking place. For all trades use [TRADE]. For all signings use [SIGNING]. For all waiver-wire transactions use [WAIVERS]. For all rumours use [RUMOUR].
      For articles or news items that don't fit into the above categories, affix an appropriate label of your choice such as [NEWS], [ARTICLE] or [MISC].   4. When the status of a thread changes a new thread can be created. The new thread should reflect the change and help focus the discussion on current events. e.g. Someone may create a new thread when a rumor becomes a trades. The old thread will be locked by the moderating team.    5. Do not misrepresent the contents of your thread or post false trades or rumors. Trolling will result in a permanent suspension. 

      SOURCES   The following source types are considered INVALID. Any links to posts or threads on other message boards Any links to personal blogs Any news heard on the radio that does not have a link to an audio vault or podcast Any news seen on television that does not have a link to online video Any news spread by word of mouth
      Additionally, certain sources may be be blacklisted due to poor credentials, clear traffic-mongering etc. Blacklisted sources will be posted here. 
      Thank you for your co-operation and please PM the Administrator or Moderators if you have any questions, concerns or suggestions regarding this forum.

[Rumour] Ryan Miller’s ‘days are numbered’ in Buffalo

Recommended Posts

Surprised this hasn't been posted yet, according to Nick Kypreos, Ryan Miller's days in Buffalo are numbered:

Through thick and thin, Ryan Miller has been the Buffalo Sabres’ go-to guy. There are some rumblings that might change, though.

During the first intermission of Tuesday’s Vancouver Canucks-Columbus Blue Jackets game, Sportsnet’s Nick Kypreos reported that Miller’s “days are numbered” in Buffalo.

The number of days might be fairly high, however, as Kypreos notes that a weak market could force the Sabres to wait until this summer or even the 2013-14 season to make a move.

The concept of moving Miller probably seems outrageous because there are many times when he appears to be one of the only bright spots for a fledgling Sabres squad.

Still, he’s not getting any younger at 32 and the team might want to shed his $6.25 million cap hit if they’re not a contender with him, anyway.

Miller’s current deal expires after 2013-14, making his departure easier to stomach if the front office doesn’t feel confident about his future with the team and simplifying a trade because he lacks an albatross contract.

This could lower the trade value of Luongo and Schneider if he eventually becomes available. Id say Gillis needs to make a move at the deadline, or this offseason at the latest.

It sounds more like he is speculating rather than basing it on any sort of inside information.

It would definitely make sense. Next year is the last year of his contract and if you watch some of his interviews, you can tell that he's sick of losing here and wants a real shot at the cup.

The only problem with the trade is that our backp Enroth sucks and is inconsistant for the most part.

Also look for the Sabres to unload Vanek for the same reasons. Vanek will most likely be looking for a raise or at least to stay at his current salary of just over 7 mill. per year. As great as he is, he isn't worth that kind of money anymore.

It has become obvious that our roster needs to be blown up and rebuilt.

Can you imagine how good 'nucks could be if they could pick up Vanek next year for maybe one or two first round picks and a decent prospect. The Canucks could trade Luongo or Schneider to another team for at least one first rounder and a prospect for sure.

I'd like to see a Bryzgalov for Miller swap straight up. Both goalies have struggled lately and need a change of scenery. Philly might have to throw in some picks to even it up a bit, maybe a 2nd rounder or 3rd.

One or two first round picks for a rental? No thanks. The twins are our highest paid players, I highly doubt the Canucks are going to give anyone else more than the twins. Someone else can have him.

Although I wouldn't be surprised with how he treats his teammates but sportsnet analysis is the worst so don't believe until tsn reports it

Not a snowballs chance would the Sabres trade Cody for Luongo. Cody is the franchise's future. If Miller is traded it would be because the Sabres would want a return on him that would help their future. With the Sabres horrible defense Luongo would get killed every night he played so it would be pointless to trade a 32 y.o. goalie for a 33 y.o goalie.
