I agree with a few other poster who believe that Miller has been made off limits in light of his development camp performance. I also believe the organization believes that Hagelin can be replaced internally in the coming years.
I don't see any linkage between Pyatt and Hagelin. I realize more than most here (having been a fan since the 1960s) that sooner or later younger players are going to be traded in order to fill in the holes needed to win a Stanley Cup, but the only tea leaf I read in this signing is that Fedotenko won't be re-signed. This signing doesn't lead Sather to hit the speed dail button and throw Hagelin into the mix for Nash. I have no doubt he's one of the players who's been on the table, but that was true regardless of whomever Sather signed to replace Fedotenko.
