I agree with Zip - Miller's age shouldn't be a reason Buffalo moves away from him. If I were Regier, I'd be awful leary of trading Miller, or somehow moving him along, without a good goaltender ready to step in. Chicago was very lucky that Philadelphia's goaltending situation was worse than theirs a few years ago. Buffalo doesn't want to be in the position either of those clubs were in, with a team ready to compete for the Cup but without a goaltender able to live up to his end of the bargain.

Chicago was lucky that Niemi was just better than Leighton. With Buffalo's luck, they'd get to the finals with the Dream 16 team winning the President's Trophy despite average goaltending, and get beat by a decent team playing good defense in front of a stellar goalie.

Keep Miller.
