Source: Oilers on Ryan Miller's no-trade list

The Edmonton Oilers are among the eight teams on Buffalo Sabres goaltender Ryan Miller's no-trade list, a source confirmed to ESPN.com on Thursday.

The Oilers are believed to be exploring the goalie market, and Miller is obviously the biggest name out there given that his contract will expire after the season and the Sabres are in rebuilding mode.

However, Miller listed Edmonton as one of his eight no-no teams as part of his modified no-trade clause.

This is not to say it’s impossible that Miller would waive it to go to one of those eight teams, but it certainly gives him control of the situation.

At this point, a source told ESPN.com that there have been no such discussions between the Sabres and Miller about any trade scenarios.

Michal Neuvirth in Washington, Jonas Hiller in Anaheim and Brian Elliott in St. Louis are other potential targets for the Oilers, although nothing appears imminent at this point.
