Ryan Miller isn’t asking for a trade

You might be reading some trade rumors involving Ryan Miller, but he wants you to know he’s not abandoning ship in Buffalo.

TSN’s James Duthie tweeted Miller’s thoughts about the notion he’s looking to get out of town to escape an increasingly ugly situation with the Sabres.

“I have not and will not ask for a trade. I will fall on the ‘sabre’ before that. Please no one ask me again.”

Puns, sarcastic humor, and not stopping enough pucks is a recipe for winding up a TV hockey analyst, so at least Miller has that going for him. Now if he wants to stop getting pestered like this he’ll stop complaining about everything and start looking like the Vezina Trophy winner he used to be.

    Hey Ryan Miller! No matter what sport you play or how good you are everyone has @ least one bad season! So what!

    Please watch game film & work on not getting beat up high!

    Dude, watch game film and learn that Miller gets beat up high becasue he commits to early to his knees. Also, in a normal season Miller getting beat up high would only result in a handful of losses, this season, with the lack of supporting cast, it doesn’t matter what he does. He could cover the net in cardboard and we wold still lose. Also, wern’t you the ring-leader in the “Miller wants to be traded West-Coast near his wife” argument? Give it up, you know nothing fool.

      Most goalies get beat up high because they go down too early. That’s basically what goalie schools that teach the butterfly train them to do.

      The Sabres are so bad they’re fighting each other.

        Given how badly the last attempt to fight a Bruin went, it’s somewhat understandable.

    Is everyone forgetting that our defense is absolutely garbage??? Only defenseman playing decent D is Regher, everyone else is playing AHL hockey. Notice how the puck comes out to the slot and it’s a loose puck, the sabres players all look at it and chase after it, while other teams tie the offense up?? first period during the red wings game, we had 3 or 4 guys battling for a loose puck in front of howard, except all of our guys were tied up and we didn’t score. miller has been our franchise player for yearssssss, just because he is having a bad season, doesn’t mean ship him out of here. the entire team is playing pathetic, and it might just be ruff’s time to go (and i’m here and there about it). and one more thing, tough to win games when we barely create any offense and spend most of our time in our own end.

    Move this team or get rid of it!!!!!!! 42 years without a cup when Tampa Bay, Mighty Ducks, Jersey Devils (who have 11 fans), Hurricanes (with 14 fans) and Avalanche have won lifted Lord Stanley? Half the teams make it to the playoffs and they couldn’t win a cup by accident? Come on, MOVE THIS TEAM OUT OF BUFFALO NOW!!!

      There’s a direct correlation between your name and the thought you put into your comments.

    All i know is this – After the preformance he put on in the olympics, this man deserves to make it far in the playoffs , and hopefully win a drink from the Cup

    I’m a Wings fan but i’d really love to see this guy win one

    I’m with ya Wez, except McNabb has outplayed Regehr this seson. This team should watch “The Mighty Ducks” and get some inspiration or something, it is painful to watch. Seeing Pass after pass get intercepted in our own zone makes my blood boil. The other thing that frustrates the hell out of me is watching guys… well, watching! Last game, I watched Sekera and Myers both stand near a scrum waiting for something to happen. Go make something happen! When you stand, you attract defenders, when you attract defenders, turnovers happen. When I see stuff like that, thats what makes me think Ruff needs to go. Sure, 1 or 2 guys every few games get caught flat-footed, but this is EVERY game! Also, Buffalomafia, I’m assuming you think I;m married because I speak grown up words and insult your intelligence, however I am probably not much older than you, I do have an education, and whats wrong with a woamn who has some junk in the trunk. Stick to what you know, which is nothing.

    Rabidbillsfan Im just bustin your balls! Im aggrevated & want a winner in Buffalo instead of this crap hockey!

    I am watching the games and think we just need get some Hanson Bros determination going, but when you see guys getting penalties for clean checks what are they supposed to do. When Miller see’s the puck getting fed to the crease over and over in 20 second span and the opposing players standing in front aren’t dumped to the ice how inspiring can that be?

    Rabidbillsfan are you watching the game? Here is your game film you moron!

    Sabres are getting spanked & the blackhawks arent even trying!
