I'd rather the kids cut their hockey teeth on a bunch of one goal losses than multi-goal blow outs. We can still suck (and draft high) with Miller back there as this year so amply proved. Unless he forces Regier's hand, what's the rush/necessity of trading this particular fan favorite?
because you would get even less at the deadline... playoff teams aren't looking for a new starting goalie at the deadline...

getting miller out sooner, rather than later is better for the trade value return, and better for the team/lockerroom to move on with new leaders, voices, expectations, direction...
