Anyway, back to Miller....

So short-listing possible teams:

- Phoenix, especially if the Sabres use the new ability to retain salary
- Islanders, again retaining salary if they aren't already on his list of 8
- .... ummm....


So. Probably not much market there, and with the VanCans about to split a seem and move one of their tandem in trade, plus a variety of UFA options (Emery, Smith, Backstrom, Nabokov for example) as well as the ever-present possibility of a youngster like Bernier being in play this summer... there is no imputus for a team to give up a lot of assets to fill a need in net when they could attempt to either get younger/cheaper than Miller (Schneider or Bernier) or fill in a UFA-type for nothing but cash.

It's too bad Waddell is scouting for the Pens now rather than a GM somewhere, since he had such a love for Miller's play.
Thats a pretty meh market for him.
