Trade:Defenseman Colin Miller to Sabres for Picks

Recommended Posts

So, does this increase the odds of a Ristolainen trade?

Cap Hit, $3.875 for next three years.  MNTC in last two.

Gotta think so.  “I can’t make the Risto deal until I replace a RHD.”

Any fancy staters have Risto vs Miller?

We're going to have 5 second pairing defensemen with a Dahlin on top, when it all comes together. 

You can win with that.

Perhaps the $1.5 million in cap savings, assuming Risto goes, allows us to take a bad contract back along with some talent ...

2021 2nd? Hahahahah. Nice work Jason.

Miller isn't quite as good as Risto IMO, but he won't be used 25 minutes per night, and if we move Risto or if we don't, presuming reasonable return for Risto, the team is better (even if slightly worse at RHD in the trade scenario).

They're both trash at breaking up stuff at the blue line but Miller is better at clearing the zone and better defensively in general. He's not going to eat minutes like Risto but he'll get a lot of o zone starts and actually *do something* with them.

Wow. If that's all we gave up then that rules.

I love “probably” in response to a question on “odds”!

That's the pick we got from the Blues.

Miller's #fancystats are significantly better than Risto's.

Dahlin - Bogosian
Pilut - Ristolainen
McCabe - Miller
Scandella, Nelson for injuries

Use all three pairs roughly equally.

Where’s Montour?

It's weird to me you have Risto where Miller belongs, Bogo where Montour belongs, and Miller where Nelson belongs. Yes, my new wet dream is we emerge from this offseason having jettisoned both Risto and Bogo.
