Miller lists five teams he'd accept trade to

On Friday, Vancouver Canucks GM Jim Benning confirmed in an interview on TSN 1040 that he has asked all of his players with provisions in their contracts to submit a list of teams they would accept a trade to.

On Saturday, Canucks goaltender Ryan Miller confirmed he's done just that.

"I haven't changed (my list) since I signed (my contract), so I just had to sign off on this year's version," Miller told reporters earlier today. "Other than that, I haven't talked to Jim. Maybe it's going to change in the next couple of days, but I'm not sure."

Benning corresponded with Miller's agent, Mike Liut, who passed along the necessary documentation to Miller to sign.

Miller indicated that as far as he knew, a trade was not on the horizon, but that can obviously change with one phone call.

The 36-year-old is in the final year of his contract and is scheduled to become an unrestricted free agent July 1. He comes with a $6 million salary cap hit, and any team interested in acquiring would likely require the Canucks to retain part of his salary.

As part of his contract, Miller can list five teams he would accept a trade to. The Los Angeles Kings, Anaheim Ducks and San Jose Sharks are three of those five teams believed to be on his list.
