They both should be down in the AHL, as neither are ready for the NHL.
The problem here isn't that Kreider is in Connecticut, the problem is Miller wasn't sent down soon enough.
YES, YES and YES !!! My god, somebody finally gets it !!
Kreider was awesome for this team last year coming out of college. Had a **** ton of energy stepping into the playoffs.........but it fizzled out. With that said, he has had time to digest and get ready for a real NHL season.......problem is, he just isnt ready.
The exact same thing goes for Miller. I think he may be more talented, but again, hes not quite ready. Both of them should be playing first line minutes in the AHL..........kind of like what happened with Dubinsky and Callahan in their first years. Up and down until they got stronger at the AHL level. The need to play and play a LOT. They need to get used to being dominate players in the AHL level, get their confidense up big time, so that when they are NHL ready......they can come in and produce at the NHL Level.
