I can't see it happening unless they find a stop-gap for next year (you mentioned Gus, but that would be quite the risk) or if Howard struggles this year and agrees to a one year deal. If Howard has a strong year, he will demand a long-term deal (especiallly if he proves he can do it without Lidstrom), so Detroit will have a decision to make. Do they let Howard walk hoping they can sign Miller next year (or maybe give Howard a long-term deal without a NTC)?
I think that ship sailed unless Detroit has an abysmal season and decides to try to swing a deal with Buffalo.
