I realize Miller's value is not at an all-time high, but I think a wise manager would know that he's going to improve as the season goes on.
Ultimately the question is would it be more beneficial to own goalies from the West instead of goalies from the East.
Currently Buffalo is giving up the second-most SOG per game, 32.9 per game which prorates to 2,698 in an 82-game season. That's more than any other season since '05. Will their D start to correct and average that out (to about 2,500 or so), or will they continue letting up this many SOG per game thus increasing the chance of being scored against?
Looking at the teams that have allowed the Lowest SOG against, you're looking at teams like Calgary (176! which is why I plan on keeping Kipper), St Louis, Anaheim, Boston, Nashville, Phoenix, etc).
I could try and hold out and wait for Miller's stats to rise, but as I wait Rinne's, Smith's, Quick's, etc. could be rising too.
And you're absolutely right I'm trying to sell-high on Purcell and Conacher. That's the point, right? Cash in before their numbers regress. To some owners that may be more obvious than to others, but it's not really a benefit to me to wait and sell them for their true-worth.
