Maybe five years ago, the Isles were on that list. I think they're actually a pretty choice destination now, though, given their trajectory. I doubt Miller would've blocked that trade. It's certainly better than staying on the Sabres.
players are pretty in tune with ownership, spending, etc.... the Sabres were a young, hot, team... and when Grier left he said it was because ownership wasn't committed to spending the money necessary to win.

The Isles have the tightest budget, the stingiest spending... it's a stretch to say they'd be the destination that Miller would want to go.

The Isles are on the right trajectory, but until they move, and Wang sells... they aren't going to be a player destination
