 In this Tuesday, Feb. 25, 2014, photo, Buffalo Sabres goaltender Ryan Miller reaches out with his glove to stop the puck during an NHL hockey game against the Carolina Hurricanes in Buffalo, N.Y. The Sabres traded Miller and captain Steve Ott to the St. Louis Blues on Friday, Feb. 28, for goalie Jaroslav Halak, forward Chris Stewart, prospect William Carrier, a 2015 first-round pick and a 2016 third-round pick.

Ryan Miller may not make much of a difference for St. Louis' Stanley Cup chances.
