The shorter the season due to the lockout, the fewer inexperienced players there will be on the NHL roster. Unless it's due to injuries.
Miller will need time in the AHL, but I question the accuracy of Leslie's scouting report. It's nice that she's doing the coverage, but her opinion on him doesn't square with any of other recent reports we've had. Miller has lots of room to improve still, but he definitely looked like he belonged in the the pre-season game on Saturday.

Also, Cerny had completely different take on the game from Leslie's:
