Now, instead of playing against the 20-23 year olds he was developing for, he will be playing against 16-18 year olds, most of which he will be bigger and stronger then.

Just do not see the OHL as a good fit for players that are physically mature.

Luckily Miller is an accomplished two way player already so he wont have to worry about missing that part of his development.

And they better not dick him around in Plymouth on the third line.

He had a big role waiting for him at UND as a top player.

Hate this decision. But hopefully the Rangers know what they're getting Miller into.

They could have left it alone and allowed him to develop as the player he is, which is a two way, playmaking center.

Will he even play center in Plymouth? Will he get top line minutes like he was basically guaranteed at UND?

Will they put an emphasis on developing a complete game? Or sacrifice responsibility for run and gun offense? The likes of which destroyed Grachev's development.
Where is the 16-18 year old number coming from in the OHL?

There are barely any 16 year olds and majority are 18-20 year olds.

And NCAA is majority 18-22 year olds, where is the 20-23 number coming from?
