BUFFALO, N.Y. (AP) - Goalie Ryan Miller and forward Thomas Vanek are both taking a business-as-usual approach to their uncertain futures with the Sabres.
Miller, a former Vezina Trophy winner, and Vanek, the Sabres' top offensive threat, reported for physicals Wednesday after an offseason filled with trade rumors.
Both players are in the final year of their contracts and are not currently negotiating extensions with the Sabres.
General Manager Darcy Regier said the window for making preseason trades has probably closed, but that talks will heat up again as the trade deadline approaches.
Buffalo began last season with Stanley Cup aspirations, but has elected to rebuild its under-performing roster with prospects and draft picks after missing the playoffs for the second straight year.
