BUFFALO, N.Y. -- His season over, Ryan Miller will be getting on a flight home to Southern California next week. Where he heads after that is anyones guess. The Buffalo goalie still has one year left on his contract, but he acknowledged Saturday his future with the Sabres is uncertain. This is a team suddenly in transition after a tumultuous lockout-shortened season. The Sabres went from hopeful contenders to dejected rebuilders in the span of three months. They fired longtime coach Lindy Ruff and traded three veterans, including captain Jason Pominville, for prospects and draft picks. Its not out of the question that Miller, the face of the franchise and star of the 2010 U.S. Olympic team, could well be next. "My status, its really up to Darcy and the direction theyre going to go," Miller said, referring to general manager Darcy Regier. "Its definitely signs of a little bit of a shift in the long-term plan, so I dont know. ... Ultimately, its not going to be up to me. Well see." Miller spoke while Sabres players cleaned out their lockers a day after closing the season with a 2-1 shootout win over the New York Islanders. It was Millers 500th career game and 269th victory -- both franchise records. Miller would prefer to stay in a town hes grown fond of since making his Sabres debut during the 2002-03 season. But the former Michigan State star and 2010 Vezina Trophy winner says hell be at peace with whatever happens. "Just trying to be open to any opportunity," said Miller, who became the NHLs 20th goalie to play 500 games with one team. "If its to be in Buffalo, Im going to savour my whole career somewhere I like to be. Thats great," he said. "If its somewhere else, Im going to have to accept it and move on. Thats sports." Regier hasnt specifically discussed his intentions regarding Miller or leading scorer Thomas Vanek, who also has one year left on his contract. The Sabres, however, have adopted a policy of acquiring assets for players not deemed part of their long-term plans. And Regier did suggest after trading Pominville to Minnesota this month that he might not be done retooling the roster. Vanek is also unsure of his future, and reiterated on Saturday hes not interested in staying in Buffalo if the team intends to start from scratch. "Ive said it before, if it looks like its a long rebuild, it probably makes the most sense for both parties to move on," said Vanek, who led the team with 20 goals and 41 points in 38 games this season. "I dont know what the plan is." Defenceman Christian Ehrhoff isnt sure what to expect this off-season. "When you trade your captain, there shouldnt be any surprises," Ehrhoff said. "Personally, I definitely hope to have (Miller and Vanek) on the team next year, because theyve been really good players for us." Another question is who will take over as coach. One candidate is interim coach Ron Rolston, who went 15-11-5 after Ruff was fired. In finishing 21-21-6, Buffalo missed the playoffs for the second straight season and fourth time in six years. And the Sabres have not won a playoff series since 2007 when they made their second consecutive trip to the Eastern Conference finals. Thats doesnt come anywhere close to the Stanley Cup-contending aspirations owner Terry Pegula expressed upon purchasing the franchise two years ago. Pegula has been one of Millers biggest backers, at one point suggesting he intends to have the goalie finish his career in Buffalo. Miller would like nothing more, and spoke of the loyalty he has for the city and the team. "It has been about my heart being here, and wanting to be here. And Im going to continue to play that way," Miller said. "Ive enjoyed my time in Buffalo. If I get to spend more time, its going to be a lot of fun. If not, Ill try to bring the same qualities I brought here somewhere else." cheap womens nfl jerseys .

After taking a 1-0 lead into the 83rd minute of Saturdays 1-1 draw with Chivas USA at Dicks Sporting Goods Park, the Rapids watched Juan Pablo Angel net the equalizer for the visiting side to leave with a point. In a game that saw precious few scoring opportunities for either side, Brian Mullans first-half goal looked like it would be enough for Colorado. But after losing seven of its previous eight games, nothing seems to be coming easily for the Rocky Mountain outfit. Colorado created most of the chances and nearly went in front in the opening 15 minnutes when Hunter Freemans cross was headed wide of the net by Omar Cummings from six yards.dddddddddddd However, the Rapids got a break in the 19th when Mullan stole the ball from Chivas USAs Shalrie Joseph and fired a shot past goalkeeper Dan Kennedy and inside the far post. Kennedy did well to keep his team within a goal on the hour mark when he made a diving stop on another Cummings header to give his side a chance. And although Chivas only managed to put two shots on goal the entire match, the Goats made one of them count as a cross from substitute Tristan Bowen was redirected past goalkeeper Matt Pickens at close range by Angel.
