Seen as the first line and being the first line is 2 different things. Look at every US team for the past few years, even the one who finished 7th, and I'm not even sure they are on the 3rd line. So Miller DOES have the excuse of having really 2 ordinairy wingers, a guy that was benched today and another one who has been underperforming. Yet, again, I am not using that excuse for him. He has been the most dissapointing player so far.
