Team Explanation
I think this deal helps everyone. I hear VGK wants a top-4 Dman and swapping out 3rd-pair Miller might get them close if Bogo plays like he did this season.

VGK gets - Cap relief for Willy contract; space on the roster for Glass; An A/B prospect that has two years of ELC left; A serviceable RHD that has his contract controlled to a more reasonable level; 2nd Rounder

BUF gets - A solid 3C that plays a hard 200ft game, can also manage at 2C until its Mitts is ready; A steady RHD on a good contract that should fit better next to Dahlin than Bogo did, might allow this pairing to finally eat heavy minutes and get Risto off the ice more often.

Essentially:
2nd Round Pick -> Eakin
Nylander, Bogo @ 50% Cap -> Miller
Reaves Cap Dump to make up some slight imbalances.

It might be a bit of an overpay but we can eat some short-term cap.

Miller is worth more than Bogosian and Nylander
