It's not about who is better... that's the myth. Goaltender performance is relative to the team around them.
I think Enroth's stats when he's the undisputed #1 while Miller is injured are very relevant, especially when evaluating whether he's capable of being The Guy. The night-in, night-out grind of an NHL starter is far different than the handpicked, cushy spot starts that the backup often receives. Enroth's numbers since Miller went down are worse than pedestrian (and, in fact, are worse than Miller's were when he was the healthy #1).
