Exactly, that would be the appeal of Miller. He's performed well over most of his career, even with poor defenses in front of him. That's what the Penguins need. They don't need King Henrik but they do need something, especially with a hampered ability to invest UFA dollars in shoring up their defense. With Miller at half salary they at least get that goaltender for next season while actually saving cap space (if they send back MAF).
