Miller truly should be in the AHL.
I can see all kinds of good things about him but he needs time to practice and repeat some things in games where the pace is more matched to him. From there he can just build on it and look like he belongs when he comes back up again.

Miller has some real skill and he's got heart. He made a move in the offensive zone last night that I can honestly say only Nash has done since Jagr was playing.

I think it's time to send him back down.

He's been awful after the first NHL goal. Every. Single. Game.

This was a terrible waste of a year of ELC and a year of free agency.

Since it was a complete waste of the first year of his ELC, I see no real point in sending him down. Keep him up with the big club for the remainder of the season, see what happens.

Not many games left anyway.

If Miller keeps on making these bone-headed plays, he won't be here much longer. The kid has a serious case of cowboy-itis.

Miller's play has dropped off significantly, and last night was his worst game of the season. Turnover, positioning, physicality, everything. There was the one play in the 3rd where he just stopped skating and let the senator go by him for a 2-on-1...I couldn't believe it. I don't know if I'd send him down yet but maybe a reduced role for a few games.

I wonder if he has a naughty picture of Torts in his room or something.

He's got the skill set to be a good player in this league. Thought it was a good idea to bring him up and get his feet wet with a taste of the NHL. It wasn't a horrible idea for him to see what the competition was like at the NHL level, but once the honeymoon period was over with this kid it became obvious: He's not ready.

But my main issue with JT Miller has nothing to do with his skill set, but it's simply the accountability issue that Torts has. If Kreider gets such a short lease, than JT Miller should get a short lease as well. MDZ got a short lease. I just don't understand why JT Miller should be different.

He should have been sent to the AHL a month ago. Let him work on what he needs to work on, and then bring him back next year.

This sums it up. No point sending him down (there's no-one to replace him anyway). He's getting ok minutes for a 19 y/o first year player, just need to hope he builds on it for next season

I agree. I don't mind growing pains with youth. Plus, it's not like he's costing us games. We'd certainly have no trouble losing with him out of the lineup.

absolutely. Doesn't hurt that he is here... What does hurt is the non-disciplinary action by Torts. Plays by Hamrlik can cost us a 2-on-1 or even , but that costs him an entire period of ice time, meanwhile the same play by Miller gets him on the ice 3 shifts later

With Kreider being sent back down...Does that mean JT stays up? Thoughts?

we literarily signed everyone mcirath, miller, lindberg, fast, jean, yogan, hirvik, so many more to say.. but thats deff not the issue..he stayed up as long as he did maybe bc no other option maybe but he didnt sign bc of that..

also only reason i bet hes still up is bc hey didnt think brass would be in the lineup last night.. more precaution then anything..

I thought I read that Miller was up last night because the Rangers wanted him to receive treatment for the wrist with the team doctors and not in Hartford.

He was up because they weren't sure if Moore and Brassard would make the game. They did.

With Stepan-Richards-Brassard down the middle, where does Miller fit in on this team now?

All (4) of those players you just mentioned can play wing and have in the past.

future 2/3rd liner.

He's YOUNG. Richards has a few years left in the tank if you ask me, but we're right now hoping Stepan continues this progress toward being a true 1C, with Brass and Miller being some combination of 2nd or 3rd depending on their play.

in 2 years, Stepan will be 24, Brass 27, and Miller 21.
