Drew Miller is ready to battle for a spot on Detroit's roster after recovering from major knee surgery.
He underwent the procedure in January and missed the last 40 games of the regular season as well as the playoffs. "Every year you come to camp, that's the discussion," Miller said. "You are always fighting for minutes. I have to prove myself again and show that my knee is ready to go. I do feel I have a spot on this team and that I can contribute." Sep 23 - 8:11 AM

Drew Miller and Detroit might be able to agree to terms in the near future.

Miller spent more than 100 days on the injured reserve list last season, which gives the Red Wings the option to offer him a contract that involves bonuses for games played. "We're working away, hopefully find a solution," Red Wings GM Ken Holland said. "He's a good penalty killer, he's a good leader in the room. He doesn't wear a letter but he's well-respected by the younger players. Hopefully we find a solution to keep him here for another year."
