There's a 0% chance the Leafs go after Miller. They've got Bernier & he was very good for most of last season. Goaltending is the least of their concerns.

I think Miller will end up in San Jose. I've read in a few places that they really want to move on from Niemi, & Miller really wants to be on the West coast b/c his wife is an actress. It seems like a natural fit.
I agree Miller Leafs seems right if they have the cay room.

Pittsburgh can't afford what Miller will be asking for. Even if they could, I wouldn't want them to do it.

Cap issues aside, goaltending is not the problem with the Penguins.

not entirely sure but possibly.....i think the oilers/flames/islanders might go after him with a large offer...but i highly doubt he wants to go to any of those places...i could see him going to the west coast for less money

Since Miller's wife is an actress based in California that is a very likely scenario.

If the Penguins had Miller years ago, they'd have more Cups to show for it. They need solid goaltending that can win them games. They continue to be successful despite Fleury, not because of.

Maybe the Ducks...? Hiller's a UFA this off-season, right...?

They'll have some reasonably important players leave. Orpik & Niskanen probably won't be back. Orpik's getting old & a little beaten up. He'll only be back if he takes a discount to stay. Niskanen had a career year as a pending UFA so he'll want too much money. I'd let him walk rather than paying him big money. Their D is probably going to be much younger next year. Dumoulin, Depres, Harrington, & possibly Pouliot could all be ready for the NHL next year.

I expect to see a lot more toughness in their bottom six forwards. There are rumours that they might look to trade Neal to help with their depth issues. I'm not sure what the rumours are worth though, as they don't have a GM right now.

While I doubt that they would of won more cups. Their games would of been lower scoring. Fluery is a terrible post season goalie but a just above average regular season goalie. Not sure what his issue is.
Miller would improve the penguins, but realistically not by much. as Fluery had his best playoff performance this year since the 07-08 season and this season was his worst playoff perormance to date.
Miller has been better playoff performer with a horrible sabers franchise. .maybe he is just regressing due to age? But regardless Miller would have made the penguins a bit better in the past but that time has come and gone.
