Sharks inquire about Miller
TheFourthPeriod.com

The San Jose Sharks have spoken to the Vancouver Canucks about goaltender Ryan Miller, sources have confirmed to TFP.

It's unclear if a deal is imminent. TFP Senior Writer Dennis Bernstein reported the news via Twitter.

The Sharks have been exploring the market for an experienced backup goaltender and have also inquired about Philadelphia Flyers netminders Steve Mason and Michal Neuvirth.

Miller, 36, is in the final year of his contract and comes with a $6 million salary cap hit.

If the Sharks were to acquire Miller, the Canucks would need to retain a portion of his salary even if the Sharks send a roster player back to Vancouver as part of a deal.

The Sharks have been more than satisfied with Aaron Dell's performance between the pipes backing up starter Martin Jones, but the team is considering bringing in a veteran goalie to assist in another run at the Stanley Cup.

Miller has a limited no-trade clause where he can list up to five teams he would accept a trade to. The Sharks, Anaheim Ducks and Los Angeles Kings are believed to be on his list, though the Kings' recent acquisition of Ben Bishop takes them out of the mix.

In 38 games with the Canucks so far this season, Miller has posted a 16-18-3 record with a 2.65 goals-against-average and a .916 save percentage.
