I don't understand how again he is not solidified.
He's just not that bright imo. He doesn't know where to be, he can't read plays. Every once in a while when he does read a situation properly, he looks fantastic, because he has all the skill and physical attributes to be an elite NHL player. But he's just an idiot, and I'm not sure you can teach hockey IQ. He's especially bad defensively but that would be a non-factor if his offense was going, just put him on the Stepan line.

In any case I will be pretty upset if at any point we see Chris Kreider at the expense of JT Miller. I'm a huge fan of his, and his game in preseason looked so refined. He plays beyond his age and I love his work ethic, two way ability and physicality. As long as he can keep the turnovers under control and keep being smart with the puck, he absolutely should be on this team.
