Couldn't disagree more(about the last part). McMillan is clearly a grinder but To me he clearly has some offensive skills, but rarely has any opportunity to showcase his two way abilities. Mainly because of the lockout and having more depth at the AHL level.

I don't see a ton of better options at least in our system. McMillan shows the ability to play in all roles at all positions from what I've seen in the AHL. I'd certainly rather give him a shot than retreads like Hagman etc.
