Maybe Torts is the one that helped him correct that but Ryan also back then would rather take the predictable shot rather than make a play. Drury was another--for a centerman he was not very good about distributing the puck to his wingers. Both shoot first mentalities.
Cally's also frustratingly uncreative leading a rush. He either shoots very early, forces a pass, or, and I'm not upset with this, dumps it deep and starts his game from there.

Hopefully hanging out with Brad Richards will develop Miller's ability to breakout on the rush
