I, too, have heard rumblings about Miller leaving and it really surprises me. There has to be more expendable players than him. I am very big fan of Miller's, to the point where I'd be more intersted in getting him in a trade than I am getting Vanek.
Those rumours are because Miller is a Detroit local and Wings fan. So the rumour is he is going to wait till UFA and sign with them. I don't think the chances are too likely that Miller end up playing anywhere but Buffalo or Detroit.

And honestly, they don't have anything we need apart from Vanek(or Miller, but see above). The last thing I want to do is add more secondary talent(Kotalik, Kalinin etc.). I want us to add top line/pairing talent or do nothing and build internally.
