If you watch Miller, even 2 games in he seems to control the play way better. You have a feeling that someone might make a play when that line is on. On the 4th line Boyle is fine, even good. As the #3 C, we're not cup contenders most likely. That's a huge hole.
What offense can he kill? His linemates have always been Fedotenko and Prust. His role is clearly to prevent the other team from scoring. I'm not sure what point you're trying to make by referencing to Bure and Ovechkin.
