Here's a trade-up scenario I don't believe I've seen discussed:

Assuming Bryzgalov is bought out by Philly...

Miller + 16th


11th + additional asset from Philly

The quality of the additional asset would depend on whether or not salary is withheld (and how much is withheld). It could also be something conditional as well...starts as a 2014 2nd, but upgrades to a 2014 1st if Miller resigns.

That's probably a little on the high side (the conditional compensation), but at it's core, I think it's realistic and works for both teams. Philly is in a perpetual state of "win now" due to Snider's impatience, and I don't think they would bat an eye at nabbing a proven starting goaltender with a history of putting up respectable numbers behind suspect defenses, even if it ends up being for a single year only.
