Miller won't to go Edmonton
TheFourthPeriod.com

Trade talks between the Edmonton Oilers and Buffalo Sabres have been fairly minimal, despite reports suggesting the two sides are discussing a serious deal.

The Sabres have been dangling several players since last season, but it's unclear if they're inching closer to one.

The Buffalo News reported Sabres GM Darcy Regier was working on a trade to send either goalie Ryan Miller or left wing Thomas Vanek to Edmonton for a package that includes 2012 first-round pick Nail Yakupov.

It turns out talks haven't gotten nearly that far.

According to TSN Hockey Insiders Bob McKenzie and Pierre LeBrun, the Oilers did inquire about Miller's availability, but nothing has transpired since.

LeBrun adds that Edmonton is one of the eight teams on Miller's no-trade list, and unless the veteran netminder changes his mind, the Oilers will have to look elsewhere for help between the pipes.

Miller, who is in the final year of his contract and is scheduled to become an unrestricted free agent July 1, 2014, is expected to be dealt this season.

Multiple sources have told TFP that neither Miller nor Vanek plan on re-signing with the Sabres, and both are likely to be moved at some point before the late-March trade deadline.

Miller, 33, has posted a 1-4-0 record so far this season, with a 2.39 goals-against-average and a .939 save percentage.
