Report: Ryan Miller And Steve Ott Traded To St. Louis

Tonight I was ready to watch Ryan Miller suit up and play his final home game wearing blue and gold for the Buffalo Sabres, however, Tim Murray had other plans for my night. Roughly 15-20 minutes before puck drop news broke that both Ryan Miller and Steve Ott were late scratches for tonight’s game. That news meant one of two things; either a deal was in place or Murray wanted to protect two of his biggest assets.

The Sabres have dealt Ryan Miller and Steve Ott both to St. Louis for Ty Rattie, however, the Blues were not willing to part

ways with their young prospect and have sent Buffalo other parts. Miller and Ott have both found a new home in St. Louis in exchange for Jaroslav Halak, Chris Stewart, prospect William Carrier, a first round pick in 2015 and a third round in 2016.

With the trade deadline just a few days away, Tim Murray may have stolen the show with this early blockbuster deal which helps the Buffalo Sabres with their rebuild and makes the St. Louis Blues instant contenders. Steve Ott is now the third captain to be traded from the Sabres following Jason Pominville and Thomas Vanek.

It’s a shocking time for many fans in Buffalo right now as the Buffalo Sabres have dealt both Steve Ott and former franchise goaltender Ryan Miller ahead of Wednesday’s trade deadline. One thing is for sure, Tim Murray came into town with a game plan for the rebuild and has taken the first step towards rebuilding the Buffalo Sabres. Tim Murray means business!
