I was more impressed by MILLER who already IS a better skater and much more physical -to me he probably willnever be a top line centre-BUT his 2-way game ,spped and physical willingness DOES scream out 2nd line centre ability--looks like a KESLER clone to me.

I like Miller 's game NOW over Scheifele's ...IF Scheifele achieves all the upside some project for him-then down the line maybe he is the more impactful NHL'erof the two..but right now-I see MILLER being the better bet.
To you maybe but Scheifele was impressive all tournement, in every game and was Canada's best player that didn't start with Mur- and end with -y.
