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.
I wonder about the latter given how low he signed for. $1M is standard back up goalie money.

Buffalo feels they wont have Miller after 13/14 season....dont see resigning him given the rebuild/retool.

Buffalo also has Hackett and Leggio(currently a UFA)...for a long time Leggio was in Rochester doing a decent job but Miller was up so he was stuck. It will be interesting to see if they also give Leggio a shot. Hackett does have one more year left of waiver exemptions for call ups.

It will be interesting to see if Miller is moved at the draft as part of a trade up or a deal for players/picks.
