While rumours of a possible trade between the Buffalo Sabres and Edmonton Oilers for Ryan Miller have been rampant over the last couple of days, there's one important obstacle that would prevent such a deal from going through.

TSN Hockey Insider Pierre LeBrun confirms that the Oilers are among the eight teams on the veteran netminder's no-trade list which his camp submitted to the Sabres in the summer.

Miller, who becomes an unrestricted free agent next July, has been the subject of trade speculation that's only been amplified with Buffalo's 1-6-1 start to the regular season.

According to The Buffalo News, there was talk Wednesday that Sabres general manager Darcy Regier was working on a trade that would send Miller or soon-to-be unrestricted free agent winger Thomas Vanek - or both - to Edmonton for possible package that would include forward Nail Yakupov.

TSN Hockey Insider Bob McKenzie adds that the Oilers did inquire about Miller, but nothing happened further than that. 

Miller is in the final year of a five-year contract that will pay him $6.25 million.

He has been the backbone of the Sabres for many years, winnning at least 30 games seven times over his career. He posted a 17-17-5 record with a 2.81 goals-against average and .915 save percentage during the lockout-shortened 2012-13 season.
