Enroth looked every bit like a #1 goalie in the WHCs this offseason, I have to imagine Swedish teams made overtures to him about coming back and taking the #1 job, so for him to re-sign in Buffalo, I'd imagine promises were made about a greatly-increased schedule.
Where did you get the idea the Sabres "covet" Hackett? He hasn't been all that heralded by anyone in the organization, and he didn't even get many starts in the AHL over Leggio (until Leggio blew a few playoff games). Obviously they like him a bit, or they wouldn't have traded for him, but he's hardly the shiniest toy in the prospect pool. Enroth may have a 5-hole the size of Alaska, but he's far more established as an NHLer than Hackett. If they were keeping Miller, the goalie they'd let go is Leggio, so Hackett could start for Rochester. And Enroth would keep doing what he has been, backing up Miller.
