Update: Miller has sold his townhouse for $640,000, an 85% increase over what he paid for the new-build just 7 years ago. It’s not entirely clear whether this means Miller wil be gone before the start of next season but it is clear that this property was a good investment for Miller. His annualized 9% return easily beat the broad stock market return over the same time period.
Ryan Miller will start his 500th game for the Sabres tomorrow night at First Niagara Center as the Sabres host the Islanders. Based on a number of reports, it’s likely to be his last game in a Sabres uniform.
Miller purchased the 3 bedroom, 4 bath, 2,700 square foot townhouse for $348,500 in May 2006. Seven years later, Miller is hoping to sell the property for 90% more then he paid. The listing doesn’t contain any interior photographs which is typical for listings of properties belonging to well-known sellers.
There was some scuttlebutt that Miller’s home might hit the market earlier today and WGR host Mike Schopp was one of the first to acknowledge the rumors.
Does this listing confirm that Ryan Miller won’t be in Buffalo next year? No, not definitively. But when you combine the house listing with the numerous reports and the fact that the Sabres are going into rebuilding mode, it seems very, very likely that Ryan Miller has one game left with the Sabres.
