‘”As much as we like those guys, we don’t want to see them smiling too much in the next few days,” Miller said.’

‘”I feel like I’m competing a lot more, lately. We’re coming along better,” Miller said this week after a 42-save effort in a 2-1 win over the New York Islanders. “You play better when everyone is getting into it, and we’re there for each other. We’re showing signs of playing responsible hockey.”‘
'Look, if people want to sit in a Buffalo snowdrift and "watch" an NHL game from 300 feet away, God bless 'em. But don't tell me this game should count in the standings. It makes a mockery of the game. You'll have guys out there in toques playing on crappy ice hoping to get the wind for the third period. This may be fun to some, but it ain't legitimate.'
'“I think it's going to be fun. I have a feeling it's a different atmosphere than going to Montreal. That was just a bad situation, a lot of people were angry. I don't have the same feeling and I don't have anything against what happened in Buffalo.”'
'“The two exits are different,” Biron said. “I definitely wasn’t on bad terms with anybody, and I don’t think Danny was, either. It was something special that was going on for a few years there, and there were decisions to be made. I definitely have a lot to be thankful for for all those years there.”'
'They are day-to-day, and their availability for tonight’s home game against Briere and the Philadelphia Flyers won’t be determined until today.'
'In their 17 wins this season, the Sabres have outscored opponents, 76-29. In their 15 losses (including overtime), they have been outscored, 60-25.'
'"Some people might feel like we're traitors," he said. "I think this situation was a little different. But it's not my goal to blast the organization for the way they handled things."'
‘”They didn’t really want to give us an opportunity to finish what we started,” he said. “I wanted to go to a team going in the same direction, a young team with a lot of upside, a team that has a chance to finish the job. That’s why the Flyers were the most interesting team.”‘
