If the goal is to bottom out - if Regier's goal is to bottom out - then you take anything for Miller.

If the goal is to maximize Miller's value, he's got more value playing in Buffalo than in a trade, unless a team like Phoenix is willing to deal something more for Miller than we'd expect.

Regier gets not much for Miller, nothing for Miller, or keeps him with some good goalies in the system, possibly blocking their way. Of those choices, none look good but three might be best.
