Miller had a really good season with the Amerks during the lockout -- putting him in great position -- and then in 05-06, Noronen had a terrible performance over his only 4 games, as Miller outperformed Biron over the course of the season with both getting a large amount of games, effectively winning the job.

Enroth has to start stealing games from Miller before anyone would think he is NHL starter material much less can take Miller's job.
