Of course, you never know how far a player could exceed expectations by (Datsyuk/Zetterberg/Lundqvist/etc.) but I don't think Miller is expected to translate a serious offensive game to the NHL. He has 2nd line upside and is expected to be a two-way 2nd line guy or excellent third line guy.
If we could get a Konowalchuk clone out of Miller I would be more than pleased.

anywhere between 15-25 goals and 40-45 points a year while playing solid defensive hockey and being stiff to play against.
