Video: Sabres and fans pay tribute to Ryan Miller and Steve Ott

Mar 1, 2014, 9:50 AM EDT

Last night’s stunning, and sudden, trade between the Buffalo Sabres and St. Louis Blues that sent Ryan Miller and Steve Ott out of town caught everyone by surprise.

With the transaction taking place just before the Sabres were set to take on the San Jose Sharks, it made it a tough night for many fans in attendance. Those that were there, however, got a chance to pay tribute to them thanks to the Sabres with these videos that played during the third period of Buffalo’s 4-2 win against San Jose.

    It’ll certainly look weird seeing him in anything but a Sabres jersey. Good luck to Miller, he deserves to win a cup and he has a serious chance now.

    And good luck to Steve Ott as well, he uses to be a cheap player everyone hated but I think he’s really cleaned up his act. He really embraced being captain in Buffalo and what that meant and I think he loved the opportunity he was given there to be a top-6 player instead of just a depth guy like he was in Dallas. That’s going to change in St. Louis. I really wouldn’t be surprised if Ott goes back to Buffalo in the summer to stay there for the rebuild. Good luck Ryan and Steve!

    Great video for Ryan– he deserved it, but Steve played there for like 5 months, his video seemed kinda unnecessary

      Despite how long he played for the organization, he did take on the role as a leader for the younger guys, something that is very very hard to fill.
