What I see in Miller that I don't see in Kreider right now(despite Kreider having a superior skill set and size) is Miller works harder more often and appears to have a higher hockey IQ.
Again, just my opinion!
Precisely. It's unfair to him to expect him to produce consistently in the NHL at this level. I don't worry too much because Torts himself has said he will do anything but ruin a prospect by rushing him. I'm just not sure if Torts sees things in practice or in games that I'm missing. He probably does.
You can tell there's something missing from CK's game, and that he's on the verge of putting it together. I think confidence and swagger, and though Torts haters will crucify me, "jam" need to be injected into his style of play. He only logged 3 shots on goal in his 7 games here.
