On paper, yes. But the way Myers has played this year I bet he would have gotten a few healthy scratches playing for the Avs. The rest of the D hasn't been all that good either.

IMO Miller and Varly and in pretty similar situations. I've seen both keep their teams in games many times this season that they had no business being in. Both have decent offenses but the D just isn't there. For this season, I'd have a hard time saying who is better of the two. Long term you obviously go with the younger Varly, but for this season alone their very close I'd say.

Plus, they've had so much trouble with faceoffs you've gotta figure more than a few of those lost draws have ended up in a beauty scoring chance that Miller didn't have much chance of stopping
