With the Sabres not announcing any plans for their goalie situation other than "We have a plan, but we're not telling you," what do think will happen tonight? Will we wee Miller? Lalime? Enroth? Or will they just try to skate the entire game with the extra attacker? After the break, another Leafs trade (Versteeg to the Flyers) and Peter Forsberg retires after two games.

With Miller having started 31 straight games, questions arose Monday as to how the crease will be manned going forward as the schedule intensifies.
