A person familiar with discussions told The Associated Press that general manager Tim Murray continues to pursue offers for Miller with the intention of trading him by next week.

Steve Ott is the Sabres’ competitive face and dressing-room voice, the guy who best represents what Buffalo wants to be as an organization.
“He just goes out there and gets his nose dirty,” teammate John Scott said. “That’s what you want to see out of a captain, a guy who’s first into the battle and leading the charge and trying to drag everybody with him.”
Matt Moulson was the King who got away. Once the Penguins, who drafted Moulson in the ninth round in 2003, declined to sign the Cornell standout, Los Angeles made him an offer. Moulson spent his seasons in the organization mostly in Manchester, the Kings’ AHL team. Instead of re-signing Moulson, the Kings let him walk.
If the Senators can pry a guy out of Buffalo to play alongside Jason Spezza, Matt Moulson should be their second choice.
Their primary focus needs to be on Steve Ott.
