Buffalo Sabres have quickly acted to shore up their goaltending situation by signing Jhonas Enroth to a two year deal

As usual terms were not disclosed.

This deal takes Enroth 1 year past Sabres netminder Millers current deal fueling speculation he's on the market. Sources have stated Sabres brass will hold onto Miller and see where the team is by next trade deadline and see what the possible return from a bubble team might be after being rejected by Colorado for their 1st overall pick faster than a prom night dumpster baby.

He's out for 6 months (which will hinder his development) and he really needs that development. There's already worries that he won't translate to the NHL and he'll end up a huge ass bust.

Nice and cheap. To bad he's been so inconsistent at times when called upon. Serviceable though if Miller does get traded

Good for the Sabres and Enroth. I think the Sabres will try to move Miller this off season.

Not so fun fact... Enroth was selected with our second round pick in 2006.

Nonis traded it away for a 4 game rental of Mika Noronen. What stings the most is that 4 picks later Milan Lucic was drafted :(

Cheaper than I was expecting. Good for them.

While I expect them to trade Miller, they'll probably go after a veteran goalie through free agency.

Tiny goalie, but a solid backup.

Enroth has the tools to be a starter; his stats aren't as good as they could be because Lindy Ruff went through the same thing AV did; couldn't get his team going anymore.

I'm expecting him to improve alot under a new coach/system.

Cheap signing for Jhonas Enroth.
