We simply do not need a goal-tending change and cannot afford Miller. Unless Buffalo wants to eat a bunch of salary and include something we actually need (young wingers) it doesn't make sense for us.

The players we would have interest in would be Stafford, Ennis, Hodgson. That's about it. I'm a big Miller fan, but because of the cap hit/contract length I'd prefer to keep Niemi, and if we were going to swap goalies you would have to make it worth wild for us, not vice versa. I just think it's a bad basis for a deal.
