Ryan Miller feels that Henrik Lundqvist's seven-year, $59.5 million extension set a new standard for goaltenders.
"I thought it was actually lower than he was probably going for," Miller said. "I anticipate with the TV deals and such, the cap is going to keep going up. Maybe it will seem like a pretty average price down the line." That's probably about the last thing the Sabres want to hear as they attempt to negotiate a contract extension with the 33-year-old netminder. Miller isn't going to command the same amount of money Lundqvist got, but in pursuit of something in that ballpark, he might end up testing the free agent market. That would be a risk for him as the free agent market often isn't kind to goaltenders exiting their prime. At the same time, Miller does have a lengthy history of success and consequently might get a big contract from a desperate team.

Ryan Miller ended up on the wrong side of a 3-1 decision Thursday as the Sabres lost to the New York Rangers.
Miller allowed three goals on 31 shots, but while that may be good enough to win with some teams, that's not often the case with the Sabres. HIs record falls to an ugly 5-16-0, but his peripherals remain very respectable. A GAA of 3.05 is rather his, but a .917 save percentage is nothing to be ashamed of.

Buffalo interim coach Ted Nolan would like to see Ryan Miller stay with the Sabres.
"You look at all the championship teams and it starts from goaltending out. ... I prefer you build around him rather than use him as a pawn to try and get something to make you better," Nolan said. "You learn to deal with the now as a coach and we've got one of the better goaltenders in the world here and I'd like to build around him myself." Miller didn't speak to the media on Wednesday. He's eligible to be an unrestricted free agent in the summer and his name has been mentioned frequently as a possible trade candidate.

Ryan Miller's brief winning ways ended abruptly on Tuesday as the St. Louis Blues beat the Buffalo Sabres 4-1.
Miller is now 4-12-0 with a respectable .917 save percentage (plus an understandably weak 3.18 GAA) on the season. Miller may or may not want to be traded from Buffalo, but fantasy owners don't have that same doubt. A swap could give him a huge boost.
