Miller wins home debut; Sabres fan posts tribute video

By Mike Harrington

TAMPA, Fla. -- It's Deadline Day and our deadline live blog shepherded by John Vogl at First Niagara Center begins at 10 a.m. The Sabres' practice at Tampa Bay Times Forum starts at 11:45 and I'm the only Buffalo reporter on hand to give you on-the-scene updates. (If you're not following Vogl and I on Twitter, today is the day to do it at @Buffnewsvogl and @BNHarrington).

Be sure to check out my story in today's editions on who might go as part  of the Sabres' fire sale.

Today is about looking ahead for the Sabres but before we do, we can have one last look back at Ryan Miller. He won his home debut for the St. Louis Blues last night with a 4-2 win over Tampa Bay that saw him need to make just 15 saves. Miller has faced only 42 shots on goal in two games with the Blues! Little different than here.

Pretty interesting St. Louis column in the Post-Dispatch by Joe Strauss talking to Miller's agent and former Blues goalie Mike Liut. Clearly speaking of the rebuilding in Buffalo and Miller's barrage of shots faced each night, Liut said, "You don’t win it by yourself. You’re not a wall.”

Several people on Twitter have sent me links to a Miller video by a fan named Connor Gorman and it's a great view set to "The Boxer", the Simon and Garfunkel classic. Click here to watch the video. It's well worth it. (The embed code is not working for some reason, so click on the link).

Now that you've watched that,  here's Miller's chat with the media in St. Louis last night. The Blues, unfortunately, run all their interviews together but Miller's starts after just 36 seconds.
