Niagara Gazette — "Our goal right now, I think, on both sides is to pursue a proper trade," Murray said. "The route we're looking at is to get value from him and put him in a position to succeed."
Murray said more than two but fewer than 10 teams have contacted the Sabres regarding Miller, but added it's too early to determine whether a deal can be reached.
The 33-year-old Miller is in the final year of his contract and eligible to become an unrestricted free agent this summer.
Murray said the Sabres would be interested in re-signing Miller if a deal cannot be completed.
Murray said Miller is open to being traded to a contender rather than remaining in Buffalo with a team that's rebuilding through youth.
"I don't think signing here is his first choice at his age and where we're at as a 30th-place team," Murray said. "But I wouldn't say he's got no interest."
Miller acknowledged his days in Buffalo might be numbered after he stopped 36 shots and added two assists in the win.
"I don't want to close anything off right now, but I know they're kind of looking around for an opportunity," Miller said. "And I think that's probably the best for everybody."
With the victory, Miller upped his franchise record totals to 284 wins and 540 games played. He was also the NHL's 2010 Vezina trophy-winner. That was the same year Miller earned MVP honors at the Vancouver Games, where he played a key role in leading the United States to a silver medal.
Murray is also open to shopping several other veterans who are also in the final years of their contracts. It's a group that includes captain Steve Ott, veteran winger Matt Moulson and defenseman Henrik Tallinder.
