Rumors will abound as to whether Ryan Miller has played his last game in Buffalo, but it's a good way to go out if he is done with the team. Miller has been sold all year in shootouts and again performed well in the skills competition. The Sabres and Miller had an inconsistent season that saw the former star struggle more often than he stole games. Whenever he ends up next season, Miller could be a value for owners after the elite netminders have been snagged. (Updated 4/26/13).

Thomas Vanek scored the lone goal in the shootout, and Ryan Miller made 30 saves before the tiebreaker to give the Buffalo Sabres in a 2-1 victory over the New York Islanders on Friday night in the regular-season finale for both teams.
Ryan Miller posted a stellar 19-6-5 record, with five shutouts, after the All-Star break last season, re-establishing himself as an elite netminder following a disastrous first half. Seven consecutive 30-win campaigns suggest Miller is one of the league's top workhorses, but he and the Sabres could benefit from a stronger backup to ease some of the pressure on the Michigan native. Look for Miller to eclipse the 35-win mark in 2013, as he and the Sabres can't afford to come out of the gate slowly again. Miller's pricetag won't be as high as it was heading into last season, but don't wait too long on Miller after the elite netminders have been snagged. (Updated 8/14/12)
