Blues want to re-sign Miller

Ryan Miller was just the perfect fit for the St. Louis Blues at the trade deadline — few people would argue that. The question is will he be the perfect fit past this season?

The Blues certainly hope so. They’ve already made it clear to Miller and his agent, Mike Liut, that they intend to aggressively try to re-sign the goalie after the season, hoping the former Vezina Trophy winner will stay on board.

Could the Blues move Chris Stewart?

Nothing much went down on the trade deadline before the roster freeze.

Part of it was economics, since the players are due a paycheck during the Olympic break. Part of it was concern about injuries that could occur during the competition in Sochi.

Halak’s recent poor play sparks the Miller to St. Louis rumors again

That was tough luck for Halak, but we’ve seen that before. Games turn quickly when pucks find their way into the net.

“All of a sudden it evaporates,” Blues coach Ken Hitchcock acknowledged during his postgame news conference. “Jaro had a tough night.”

Halak could have made amends in the shootout, but he didn’t. A big point got away from the Blues in startling fashion.

Blues looking for an elite goalie?

Goaltenders Jaroslav Halak and Brian Elliott have a combined .833 save percentage in those games, with Halak pulled twice and Elliott once. Halak has been pulled four times this season, overall. The Blues have a great team, but they need a true starting goalie. They won’t give up their best prospect, forward Dmitrij Jaskin, but I can see them moving former Oiler Magnus Paajarvi and their first-rounder, plus Halak would be in play.

Are the Blues looking at Miller?

Miller, 33, is in the final year of a five-year, $31.3 million contract with Buffalo, which may be inclined to move the netminder, who will become an unrestricted free agent this summer. The Blues are believed to be one of the teams that inquired about Miller last offseason, but it appears that that ship has sailed.
