I think Miller is closer to the NHL. Once he smoothes out the rough patches that come with beginning to play adults, he can be at least a bottom-6 player next year. I think a 12+20=32 season is not unreasonable from him.
McIlrath needs more time. He hasn't played in the WJC and he just began in the AHL, so he'll need time. I want to see him start using his shot. I'm having a hard time remembering him actually fire the puck. But I'll tell you this: everyone says he's a good skater for his size. Forget "his size". He's a good skater, period. If he were 5-foot-9 and skated like this, he'd still be classified as a good skater. He's using his skating, size and his reach to play good defense, but he needs better awareness and quicker thinking on the ice.
