They aren't thoroughbreds of this roster and I doubt they will be. Our roster runs through our defense and goaltending.

And exactly, points aren't everything either. Dubinsky and Anisimov are far better defensive players than Kreider or Miller.
Miller is going to be a very good defensive player. His strength along the boards and puck possession skills are way ahead of his years. Kreider is another story. I'm not sure he'll every be that good defensively but with his speed and shot he could score 40 some day.
