Miller would be my goalie of choice.
Makes a lot of sense, you can't get playoff experience, unless you play on a team that makes it there. Besides, who here wouldn't take Marc-Andre Fleury right now even though he has no playoff experience? If he stays as good as he's been in the years to come, but pitt still sucks, are people going to knock him because of his lack of playoff experience? Every goalie, at some point in time, is without playoff experience.

Besides, if a goalie is truly good, then it shouldn't matter... playoffs may have more intensity, but hockey is hockey, and stopping pucks is stopping pucks.
