Ryan Miller and Cam Ward have the same contracts-3 years/$8 million
Miller signed his last summer and Ward signed his a few weeks ago
Miller has taken Buffalo to back to back final 4 appearances and Ward won a Cup
The $4.5-$5 million figure is in a long term deal-6/7 years
Why 1 year for $4.5 million when his peers are making an average of $2.6 million?
