Miller should have stayed in Ct. He has not done much in this tournament.

Because he's not close to living up to his potential (though I'm in the camp that his potential isn't very high anyway). He's not passing well and he's holding onto the puck too long. Hasn't been making things happen. Jimmy Vesey getting bumped up into Grimaldi's spot was instant chemistry and that line accounted for 3 goals I believe? If Grimaldi can find a spot somewhere else I'll support it but the chemistry isn't there and he's incredibly small.

If you're just looking at the stat lines Miller hasn't been too impressive but I'm liking his game overall. IQ looks good, good motor, not afraid to chip it up a bit and seems to like to shoot, even if he doesn't get to as much as he'd seem to want.

Dubinsky 2.0 with a different trajectory and an ELC to ease our cap.

Nice to be able to get back on and watch a little hockey. What do people think of the Canadian Jonathon Drouhin. He's only 17, holds onto the puck too long. But he's tremendously fast and has lots of room to grow. Reminds me a bit of a young Yvan Cournyer (may have forgotten the exact spelling) - for you younger guys, the great Canadien winger of the 60's.

I don't think it's fair to critique Dubinsky for having a '10 cent brain', when he is in fact, a very smart player. Just claimed that in rebuttal for Miller.

At least Miller probably won't get overpaid like Dubinsky, since our top six is much more solid now than it was back in 10-11. It will be much harder for Miller to get the same minutes that Dubi did.

Miller is similar to Dubi, but I don't see him being as physical and possessing a better shot. A good deal better, if I can gauge correctly, though it's hard to tell when comparing it against only juniors. Miller also looks for the opportunity to shoot a lot. I think Dubi had more of a playmaker's instinct and that might actually have been a weakness. Miller wants to shoot every time I see him in the offensive zone. The opportunity doesn't always present itself, but he's always trying to square up for the quick release.

Thank God Ghost got suspended a game for his stupid play. May actually help us out. What a horrible player he is.

If Brandon Dubinsky was a "very smart" hockey player, he'd still be here.

I'm almost upset he didn't get suspended longer. Not due to his play, he just deserved more games for how stupid that was.

It's unfathomable how dumb some of these kids can be.

No, he isn't here because the Rangers needed to send salary the other way to absorb Rick Nash's absurdly high cap hit.

The thing that pisses me off the most about this team is that USA Hockey has tried to build up chemistry using the U18s and the NTDP program. Instead of using long time pairings like Skjei and Jones along with Sieloff and Trouba, they get split up for no reason. It's a silly, stupid thing to do and wastes any and all of the buit up chemistry.

The last two teams have had no chemistry. The Steps-led team is the only team over the past 3 years I was going crazy for...couldn't really get behind this team or the one last year.
