In fact, I'll be satisfied if Miller will average 38 points per season over the full 82 games (as opposed to 64).
While it is possible that Miller will become superior to Hagelin, at this point, you have to go with the Swede because he's so much more proven, and Miller does not have a significantly higher upside. The only way you take a less proven guy is if he can potentially become much better in the future than the proven player (a.k.a., Michael St. Croix over Roman Horak). That isn't the case here.
I personally believe Miller has a much higher upside than Hagelin.
Love Hagelin, but I think he is what he is. a 2nd/3rd line complimentary player. I think Miller can be a catalyst.
