from Bruce Garrioch of the Ottawa Sun,
Montreal GM Marc Bergevin has been working the phones with an eye towards making a move. Ideally, he’d like to get a skilled finisher for up front. The issue is the Canadiens don’t have a lot to offer in return. They have tried to move captain Brian Gionta in the past, but he’s not going to fetch the kind of return they want ... Three teams in the West have shown interest in Buffalo G Ryan Miller. It’s believed the St. Louis Blues, Chicago Blackhawks and, possibly as a long shot, the Anaheim Ducks have at least sniffed to see what the asking price is for Miller. The Blues make the most sense and the Blackhawks may be looking for depth behind Corey Crawford. A lot is going to depend on injuries and what happens to some contending teams. Miller’s value will be highest at the March deadline and that’s when a decision will be made on captain Steve Ott as well. He will be offered the chance to stay by the Sabres.
The Blackhawks may add depth in the middle. They’ve certainly been sniffing around for help. Leafs GM Dave Nonis just wants to do something, especially at centre.
