NHL rumors for April 9, 2008

According to the Buffalo News, the Sabres want to sign Ryan Miller to a long-term contract extension, but the question is, does he want to? Miller wants to meet with management to see the direction of the franchise before he commits to any new deal. Brochu's take: Miller's seen some of the best players on his team leave year after year; Daniel Briere, Chris Drury and Brian Campbell. Will Buffalo open the bank to sign him?

The San Jose Sharks have signed forward Frazer McLaren and defensemen David MacDonald and Mike Moore.

Brochu's European rumour roundup:

Anaheim Ducks forward Geoff Platt is rumoured to be signing with SCL Tigers of the Swiss Nationalliga A.

Detroit Red Wings forward Mark Cullen is also rumored to be signing with SCL Tigers.

New Jersey Devils defenseman Olli Malmivaara is rumored to be signing with JYP in Finland.

Vancouver Canucks forward Brad Moran is rumoured to be signing with Skelleftea of the SEL.
