2 NHL games and a few glimpses into his games against high school aged kids, and JT Miller is just fine defensively at this level? Sorry, I dont buy it.

Hes been a revelation, and Im not taking anything away from him. But on the other side of the coin, he made some really careless passes and turnovers over the past 2 games. Again, expected out of a 19 year old. Hes also not entirely sure about the coverage on the backcheck if you watch closely. Again, growing pains and he'll learn. Im just not sure he'll learn it all this season.

Kreider is in the same boat. If those 2 stick together, they're going to have to receive some sheltered minutes and avoid the oppositions top offensive talent.

....thats where a guy like Brian Boyle becomes important.
