Miller will be fine. Like some have said before -- he's got an NHL frame, so when he isnt scoring, he can contribute elsewhere. His scouting report began with size and effort, and everything else after that is gravy.
This idea of a young kid like Kreider or Miller getting rushed to the point where it hurts their development stems from 1998-2004 paranoia -- the team was so friggin miserable that every single call-up from Hartford were to a man treated like some sort of Heaven-sent liberator.
The post-Lockout Rangers are different. They know what the hell theyre doing when it comes to developing kids. Del Zotto and Callahan are just two examples of kids people thought were "ruined". Miller and Kreider were introduced to the franchise as role players.
Miller is better than Boyle in so many ways, and it's not because of a couple of games. This franchise has been great at turning the page with players who just didnt cut it anymore, or were supplanted by superior talent.
