Given the Flames and Sabres have dealt twice in the recent past, the Sabres happen to have a top notch goalie that might be moved, and the Flames happen to need one, I could see a deal here.

Flames own 1st 2013

Ryan Miller
Drew Stafford
2nd 2013
2nd 2014

Why the Flames do this:

Flames need a goalie to fulfill ownership demands of making the playoff in 2013. Miller has been known to be able to carry poorly built teams to the 1st round of the playoffs.

Why the Sabres do this:

Obviously, they want all the futures, and Darcy only seems to move major pieces when he think he will clearly "win" the trade.
Not saying this is terrible but this is terrible. Miller can't make Buffalo win with their defense but he will make Calgary win with a worse defense? Highly doubtful. We will use our pick to get a franchise player to replace Iggy and management is convinced Ramo is a starter in this league.
