We also have more need for an LW than a C. We presently have Brad, Step and Boyle as long-term centers (unless we choose to trade them away). We also have Nieves, Lindberg and Jean (plus lower prospects like Yogan and Fogarty, as well as St. Croix, who may be either a C or an RW), so our center position will be filled beautifully for at least half a decade to come.

But at LW, we have just the prospects and rookies Hagelin, Kreider and Hrivik. Miller would have a much easier time making an impact.
Preaching to the choir. I know people have been saying he's a center since he was drafted, but I think he's better on the wing. If the organization is certain he's a center, then why not go the Seguin route with him? Pair him with a defensively responsible center who can take draws, and ease him into it over the course of the year. Reduce the learning curve a little bit.
