I'd love to see it happen but I don't expect it at all. MPF24 is definitely right in that Miller is closer to Dubinsky than Kane, I don't get why he's getting heat for that. A lot of guys look great offensively in juniors but have a hard time translating it to the next level.

I like JT Miller a lot, but he's not going to be a high scoring player in this league. Dubinsky was the team's leading scorer not too long ago, I don't even know if Miller will come close. Dubinsky had better PPG at the junior level and wasn't looked at as a crazy talented offensive threat, so I'm not quite sure why people think Miller has been so much better in his development.
Exactly. I just want to see a guy who has his motor running all the time and competes at both ends of the ice. Not looking for stellar production on the score sheet.
