The more I think about it, the more I really wish we hadn't burnt a year off Miller's ELC. Next year we could field a lineup like this:

Hagelin-Stepan-Nash
Clowe-Richards-Callahan
Kreider-Brassard-Fast/Thomas
Hrivik-Lindberg/Miller-Dorsett

Scratches: Boyle, Powe, Asham (dump Pyatt down a hole and forget about him)

If we hadn't burnt that first year off Miller's ELC, then next year would only be the first year of his contract and we could slot him in the year after that after amnestying Richards or letting Brassard walk/trading Brassard. As is, this creates something of a logjam. Miller really would benefit from some serious time in Hartford too.

I know it's all a pipe dream since Torts would never slot that many kids into the lineup anyway, but those could be some nice lines next season. Hrivik and Lindberg are both two-way guys who might be able to play the defensive roles quite well. The top six is experienced and talented. And that third line has the potential to be dangerous.
