I'm not breaking any news here about Ryan Miller since it has been the big news of the day but it's good to see the Sabres make a commitment to an important cog on the team. Sabres management has been harshly criticized and maybe now they have proven that they are committed to winning. A quick glance at the Sabres salary makes it clear why they could not keep some very popular players.
I was among a large group of fans that have been preaching this for awhile now but some writers in the local paper continued to insist that the Sabres were not committed to winning. I think today the Sabres proved once and for all why some writers work for the paper while they are in charge of running a NHL franchise. I'd be interested to see what this team would like if Chris Drury, Daniel Briere and Brian Campbell were all making $5 million per season, I'm guessing they would not be too competitive in two or three years.
