BUFFALO, N.Y. (AP) - A person familiar with discussions has told The Associated Press that Buffalo Sabres GM Tim Murray continues to pursue offers for goalie Ryan Miller with the intention of dealing him before the NHL trade deadline on March 5.
The person spoke on the condition of anonymity because Murray did not speak to reporters Monday.
The person said the team's first option is trading Miller, who is in the final year of his contract. Option No. 2, would be making a bid to re-sign Miller if a trade can't be completed.
Miller was a no-show at Sabres practice Monday because the United States backup goalie was traveling from the Sochi Games.
Miller was scheduled to arrive later in the day, and is set to start against the Carolina Hurricanes on Tuesday.
