Kreider is inconsistent but that threat of getting up to speed and flying down the wing is something that opposition d-men have to be constantly aware of. Just the possibility and the other team has to be always ready to back off. Miller's not going to do that. Miller is not as big or strong either--though Miller is more likely to drop the gloves if necessary. It could be a chance for Miller to really shine. I'm expecting him full time with the Rangers next year.

Anyway if the Flyers and Rangers are the first round matchup this year better to have home ice. Not having Kreider in the lineup could mean that much. The Flyers are going to try to bury the Rangers on the forecheck tonight IMO--without Kreider their D I expect will be pinching down more.
