We can either:
1) Keep Miller and let Hackett spend the year backing him up, hope he plays well enough to steal some starts (and then look for a vet FA to back him up the following year)
or
2) Accept that it will most likely get worse before it gets better and just roll Enroth/Hackett tandem (if we trade Miller before next season)

In no scenario are we looking to pick up a star goalie with a massive contract.
It's my opinion that Buffalo and St Louis are real wild card teams for Luongo. It's a stretch....but one goalie leaving (Miller) creates another opening. I don't believe Enroth has shown anything that should give a team confidence to have him as a starter......like NYI with Poulin/Nilson) my assumption is that every team needs one goalie they can bank on. Buffalo can give Hackett another year to mature, use Enroth as a backup again, and pick form the pool that's available this year if Miller leaves. You will notice that I had them signing Bryz....
