Why can't you let Miller play? He played well in his two games here and is dominating the AHL right now.

Biron, Afinogenov and a 2nd rounder for Gonchar and Grier? That's a no brainer. The Caps wouldn't even have to include Grier in that deal.

Let me suggest an alternative deal:

To Buffalo: Morris

To Washinton: Biron, Afinogenov, Campbell, Skoula, Colorado's 2nd, Buffalos 2nd

To Colorado: Kolzig, Gonchar, Grier.

Instead of getting another LD, we get a younger RD. There's a perfect pairing for Z. Defense looks like:

Zhitnik / Morris
Kalinin / Fitzpatrick
McKee / Patrick
Tallinder / Delmore

IMO, the next step is to deal McKee and Delmore for a solid physical RD, and pair Tallinder with him. Patrick is the 7th defenseman.
