If we trade for Miller, that means we traded two number two picks and a third for a backup goaltender? If Anders is our long term guy, lets get him on the fast track. He already has to make up for missed time this year due to injury.

Because of that soft marshmallow he let in to LOSE the Gold Medal game, and all the other things he hasn't won.

If they get Miller, and keep Lindback, 2 things will happen. 1. If Miller comes here, forget Lindbacks developement. 2. Vasilievsky will be here sooner than later.

Goalie needs help from his defensemen. Buffalo had a very defensive system.

I think it's a mistake as Buffalo has more solid defensive team than Tampa Bay will....Miller isn't a goalie built for a run and gun type team.

If the Lightning had less Brewer's, MAB's and Ohlund's/Lee's, then I'd say yes.

Don't see why all this talk about Miller. The only thing out there is a few tweets from guys that throw stuff against the wall in hopes that something sticks. Even the Buffalo papers have nothing.

No goalie helps this team with the defense we have. We need to replace Brewer/Carle, and get Hedman to play smarter before we even begin to wonder if we need a goalie.

To potentially solve the goaltending issues they've been having for the next 4-5 years? Hell yes. Where do I sign? Miller's only 32.
This. Even if he's not Luongo, still you build from the net out. It's a foundational cornerstone axiom and a longstanding cliché with good reason.

Anyone believing a solid #1 G is optional, isn't the trickiest thing to acquire or that this team's #1 most acute need is not [still and always] in the crease isn't paying very close attention IMHO. The D needs to improve 2B sure, but D can't take the place of a competent, reliable G...even if your D plays perfect positioning, fights well and keeps the choicest scoring areas clear, the G still has to make the expected saves on the attempts from bad (often ridiculous) angles, the unscreened and far-away shots that our Gs do not--never mind headstanding and stealing you the important game in the clutch when it's all on the line, that's more like a guaranteed GA at this point.

Again, O SFY, we supplicate, hear our urgent plea...go get a G
and sign him up

Maybe we should wait and see if they can play better for Cooper.

So far we have posting here wanting to dump Brewer, Carle, Salo and several others. Who do you dump them for?

As far as the goal only two names are out there, Kiprusoff and Luongo and Kiprusoff says he would not report (and for a good reason) and to get Luongo you would have to blow up part of our team.

I totally agree. Especially since none of these guys are likely to be moved...

Hopefully we get to see how they all look together with Lindback behind them before the season ends. Then we can worry about moves. I just don't see much that HAS to be done at the deadline.
