He won't lead the team in points like the one year Dubinsky did that, but his potential is definitely higher. Dubinsky had more physicality to his game but I think Miller will eventually develop into a guy who feels more comfortable with his responsibilities and thus will be more comfortable throwing his body around. He was a great physical presence for Plymouth and looked good at the WJC too. His goal-scoring ceiling isn't very high, but I think his playmaking abilities are underrated. Young talented playmakers turn the puck over a lot early on in their careers and then figure out how to be more careful, but still make the same types of passes. With Miller you can tell he has the high hockey IQ that guys like Anisimov were missing, but he's just not at the NHL level yet. He'll get there.
