Miller vs Enroth

The new trend in the league is highly paid goalies are not the way to go. High priced goalies around the league in places like Philadelphia, Vancouver, Boston, and Buffalo have been out played by the cheaper back ups and points this season. Should the Sabres consider moving Ryan Miller and letting Jhonas Enroth take over? How much of a drop off would they really see?

Bryzgalov for Miller?........... :rolleyes:

on a serious note,If I am Buffalo, I am talking with Tampa who needs a goalie desperately. I think you would get the most bang for your buck going that route if they decide to move a goalie.

I partially disagree. If you don't have a good potential backup for Enroth, might as well keep Miller around (or include a goalie in a trade).

Boston's Tim Thomas is doing just fine btw, and starting roughly 2 out of every 3 games.

No any Miller trade they make a goalie has to come back in it. A Miller trade would provide cap relief with him making 5.25 million and Enroth making under a million and has better #s than Miller. Thomas is playing fine, I was only using him as an example because Rask makes less and has similar #'s.

I think that moving Miller is the "end" for an era with the Sabres and unless there is a definite new direction that is involved and effectively communicated to the fanbase, it will not go over well.

Enroth "having better numbers" is great, and all. But he's still the backup. He has yet to prove that he can post those numbers consistently while starting 66% of games for a season. Trading Miller to move Enroth in now is premature IMO. A year or two? Maybe.

And if you're trading Miller because Enroth "has better numbers" are you expecting a starter or backup goalie back? Quite frankly, I'd go for some position players in return - if the point is to elevate Enroth. Then sign a reliable backup. That Marty Biron character is up after this season... Getting some scoring punch back is perhaps the only way to get the fanbase on board with moving Miller. Biron softens it.

Lastly, Miller's NTC allows eight teams he won't accept trades to. That likely rules out getting something like a Rick Nash from Columbus

I don't think, especially with their young D, that the Sabres "need" Miller - but they are still a franchise that once did and that made him the face of the Sabres and the darling of Western New York.
