You've probably heard so many Ryan Miller trade rumors by now that the next mention of the goaltender's name may make you pull your hair out. First - Ryan Miller - and second, it looks like there's actually some truth to those rumors.
After numerous "reports" from several "inside sources" hit Twitter last night, you may have believed the deal was as good as done. Not so fast. As always, after reviewing the source, you'll find that there isn't much credibility to any of those reports.
However, the Blues are in fact "very interested" in Ryan Miller, according to Jeremy Rutherford:

There you have it. It's official. We've heard that Doug Armstrong is committed to Jaroslav Halak, but we also know that he's a brilliant man and will jump on an opportunity if he sees one.
Though we now have confirmation that the Blues are more or less interested in Buffalo's netminder, don't buy into the other rumors you hear. One in particular stated the Blues were dealing Ty Rattie, Halak and a first-round pick for Miller. Laughable stuff. It's pretty doubtful Armstrong would be willing to deal arguably the team's best prospect and a first-round pick for a guy who is demanding some big time money.
