It's not something he hasn't already said before, but Ryan Miller told a French language media outlet yesterday that he hasn't asked for a trade from the Sabres but nonetheless isn't ready to sign a contract extension.
"I have not demanded a trade, but I told [the Sabres] I wanted to see the future direction of the team before talk of a possible contract extension," Miller said to TVA Sports.
The starting goaltender for the 5-20-1 Sabres also stated that he won't make any decisions on the matter until at least February. But he realizes something could happen before then.
"If I have to be traded, I accept my fate. It's a reality of the NHL and professional sports. I can't control it. I 've never experienced this. I guess the shock becomes smaller when you changed teams twice or three times."
Miller is 33 and in the final year of his contract. It's expected that he'll be dealt before the trade deadline.
