Considering how plugs like Dupuis strike gold by playing with the likes of Sid and Geno, they can afford to go cheap with retreads on the wings if they want to, long before moving key personnel.

That said, the team that Regier should be talking to about Miller is probably Pittsburgh at this point. MAF/Vokoun didn't get it done so finding a possible MAF-for-Miller swap it a little equalizer going to Buffalo as a short-term answer for the Pens has some appeal.

Pens get a preceived better pressure goalie, potentially with a cap adjustment held by the Sabres to allow the Pens to retain UFA around their core while removing a guy who's confidence appears shot on a longer deal. Buffalo moves Miller for something, even if it is a transitional piece like MAF, and avoids losing him for nothing. Waddell being a pro scout for the Pens might work in the Sabres favor too.
