Hiller to the Sabres ?

According to a Swiss local hockey site, Jonas Hiller and Bobby Ryan were about to be exchanged against Ryan Miller from the Sabres. The exchange would have been canceled only because when it was the moment, Miller got injured in a clash against Lucic (Boston Bruins)

New rumors about the same trade would be resurfacing according to this site.

Has one of you heard anything about that ?

Not really actually.

And i doubt it happens. Miller have huge payroll, which would hurt our budget team.

It was last fall, while Hiller was still not back to form after the vertigo issues.

The way he played the second half of the season he's obviously back to form and there is less than 0% chance of that trade occurring, and no reason to trade a goalie they know works in Boudreau's system regardless of the other parts involved.

A healthy Hiller is a top 5 goalie in the league, Fasth is going to be a key, key guy for us, Hiller should only play 60-65 games, it also would help if our defense wasn't total garbage!

In short, the gap between Hiller and Miller is not Bobby Ryan

According to Greg Wyshynski, we asked if Miller was available. Buffalo told us he wasn't, and that's as far as it got. No players were offered.

I don't believe the first rumor, I don't believe it now.

If there's a gap I'd say it's the other way. Miller is, imo, the most overrated goaltender in recent memory. He had one really good year, and has been decent in other years, but not so 'decent' that I'd put him in the current top 10.

One thing is sure Hiller can't play 70+ games but other story is Fasth ready to backup spot rightaway...he is huge ?-mark.

And about the rumor it was rumored last season too...Miller's wife is actress so it would be easier if Ryan would play closer to Hollywood.

Either false rumour or incomplete. Buffalo was at the cap. Miller's cap is 6.25 (or thereabout, can't be bothered to check) while Ryan + Hiller is 9.6. Doesn't make sense.

Whatever motivation there was for trading Hiller disappeared when he found his game again. For the time being, he's an elite goaltender on a good contract.
