Miller is NHL ready. He's going to have mistakes. Most players make mistakes. Especially young ones.
Team has no pulse. Miller is playing like a man on a mission. Had nerves first game, held stick tight, didn't finish on chances, but was in correct positioning and provided energy. Has better vision, speed, stick handling, finishing ability, etc. than Boyle or Pyatt.
Kreider wasn't put in a position to succeed. He played one game on a good line last year, the only Rangers game they won against the Bruins. Put him with linemates that complement his abilities, he'll produce.
Richards + Nash together were terrible for his style of play. He picked up his play in final 2 preseason games.
Pouloit didn't show anything in preseason. Neither did Pyatt. Neither did Boyle.
You're comparing apples to oranges and trying to make it sound plausible. As 4th line players, fine. As 2nd line players, who's the safer bet to score you goals?
let's also not forget the play of both Nash and Richards to star the preseason games, neither looked that great, so that certainly did not help Kreider get going. I think Kreider will get called up after the Washington game and if he is centered by Stepan or Miller, he will succeed in the NHL.
