I'd throw Vanek in there with Roy, there is no need to rush these guys, they are way too important to our future (Vanek especially) to worry about a little increase in excitement this year by bringing them up (Roy, in this case).

Give them a full season in the minors, make them earn the call up.

What do you think the fan base will look like if either of those guys flop b/c they were brought up before they were ready?....Not worth the risk, IMO.
I agree in terms of Roy and certainly Vanek, but Miller has already had a full season in the AHL. If Buffalo has a potential trade that would necessitate bringing Ryan up as the starting goalie, I would not be worried about it stunting his development.
