BUFFALO, N.Y. (AP) — The Buffalo Sabres are moving on without the longtime face of their franchise.

And they know the experience will be anything but ordinary.

"When a guy like Ryan Miller gets traded, that's not a normal player getting traded," interim head coach Ted Nolan said. "He was the face of the organization for a long, long time. To lose a player like him, it's tough."

Tough, yes, but perhaps good practice for a team that could be offloading several more veterans before Wednesday's trade deadline, as general manager Tim Murray continues efforts to fix the NHL's worst team.
