I thought Miller looked darn good in the NHL. I was more impressed with his play in the NHL than the WJC's to be honest.
Miller made a high caliber play for every boneheaded play he made, and there were quite many of each. Not many players in this league can break the pattern, beat players one on one, and take the puck to the net on a regular basis. It's not enough to get pts on the board, but if you have that ability and can play a gritty 2-way game -- a lot of good will come out of it.
