Miller Time in Anaheim?

As we all know, Jonas Hiller is going UFA this season, leaving Frederik Andersen and John Gibson as our only signed 'tenders for next year. Leaving these two in net to start the season is a pretty obviously risky idea; common logic suggests that we will either be resigning Hiller or grabbing a new goalie in the offseason. An insider on this site recently stated that Hiller's contract demands might be too high, and teams like the New York Islanders and possibly Calgary will be seeking out long-term solutions in net.

If Hiller walks, could we see Ryan Miller come to Anaheim?

This article suggests just that, and the idea is tantalizing. TSN's Bob McKenzie stated that "The conventional wisdom among the hockey community is that one of the reasons Miller wants to wait until free agency on July 1 is to see if there’s any interest from the Anaheim Ducks," so it appears to go beyond mere fan speculation. Miller's wife is a Hollywood actress, and he purportedly would love to be closer to his family; with Quick and Niemi obvious longterm solutions in goal for the Kings and Sharks, that leaves Anaheim for a potential destination. Anaheim as a target of a top star for family reasons? Weird, but not unprecedented (we're looking at you, Scotty Nieds). Does Miller fit for this team? Is he too good for that question to matter? Would we pay the probably moderate bump from $4.5 million for Hiller now, or go for a cheaper option in net? Interesting questions, interesting scenarios.
