Ah, it’s a Monday and with every Monday comes a brand new set of trade rumours for fans to become wrapped up in and stress about before they’ve even had their morning coffee. When I awoke this morning and made my daily rounds on Facebook and twitter I was unsurprisingly met with more Ryan Miller trade rumours.
We’ve all been hearing about these rumours since the puck dropped on this NHL season. It seems everyday a new team
has been added to the Ryan Miller rumours as everyone from the Edmonton Oilers to the Washington Capitals, have been rumoured to have interest. However, the rumours swirling around today, seem to carry a little more weight and worry than those earlier in the season, as the window to trade Miller is just about perfect.
Now we’re still looking to dig up an official source for these rumours, but there is some talk the Buffalo Sabres may be holding some kind of press conference later today, or early tomorrow and that a trade for Ryan Miller is all but complete. Where is Miller likely to land? The St. Louis Blues, the rumoured front runners in the Miller sweepstakes all season.
With the trade deadline looming and the Olympic Break mere days away the Buffalo Sabres have become more proactive in shopping the netminder. While the Blues are thought to be the lead team in the rumours today, an injury to Josh Harding has the Minnesota Wild apparently interested in the netminder. With Harding on the shelf and the Wild in the playoff hunt, they could use a goaltender in a hurry.
A team in the central is rumoured to have offered the Buffalo Sabres, a large deal to net Miller before the Olympic break and both the Wild and Blues play in the central. At this rate there is a very strong chance Ryan Miller will be dealt before the Olympic break, if not by the end of this week.
Stay glued to SabreNoise for all the latest Ryan Miller rumblings. What could the Sabres land in a trade with the Blues? How about the Wild?
