Add to that a woeful UFA crop of goaltenders in summer 2014--Lundqvist is not leaving NYC, and the best options after him are Kipper (will be 37 and far less consistent than Miller), Hiller (will probably want a raise to the point there wouldn't be much cost savings from Miller), and Halak (ditto). The only way I see Miller going is if someone offers a hot shot goaltending prospect on the cusp of NHL duty (plus other assets) in exchange for Miller. I don't think he'd ever ask out.

While Miller has grown more jaded to Buffalo over the years--particularly with the local media--I get the sense that the Pegulas very much like him and the feeling is mutual. I wouldn't be the least bit surprised to see him sign something like a three-year deal for similar money
Just my opinion, but I think Enroth will be ready enough to be a starter in 2 yrs with a vet backing up until Linus Ullmark is ready in 3-4 yrs
