That third line, as is, isn't good enough defensively to not be creating scoring chances. I'm not saying send him down right now, or guarantee him a spot. let him finish his 5 games, and then make the decision.
Miller is not an offensive player. He's a two way player. He did look a little tired last night as did Staal and MDZ and Richards. However, that line will be very good defensively once Miller and Kreider get comfortable with the system. Kreider is already playing well defensively and Cally is Cally.
