Even if we won't miss him on the ice much, I will always feel we could use a guy like him on the bench and in the locker room. And he WAS a good player for us as well. The one bad season will never change that for me. Personally, I see a lot in common between Miller and Dubinsky's skill sets but not as much in their approach to the game. Dubinsky was a puck possession, playmaker in the offensive zone. Miller looks to open up for the one-timer and wants to shoot off the rush as well. They're similar in their attention to the two-way game and readiness to play a physical game, though I don't see Miller being as chippy, overall.
Without Nash and other additions, if we had a effective Duby back, we would be just as good of a team as we're capable of being now.
