But I don't see him cracking 50 points at the NHL level. I don't know what it is. I remember he was compared to Mason Raymond at the draft.
The more I've watched of miller, the more I think he just isn't a finisher.

He's got a good shot. But if he is being asked to be a primary goal scorer it just won't happen. Which is a large part of his job when he is a wing with brassard.

Miller at least in the ahl and WJs is much more of a two way center who is a playmaker.

For a tough guy, Asham has good hands. It's not hard to beat Pyatt's whopping single point.

Lacking Dorsett has really showed how weak this team is. They get behind and there's no fight. It fell to Nash to try to get that going.

Haley is similar to dorsett? You must be on some good stuff. Haley is a bum.

Not sure about Asham. He serves little purpose on the ice, but I agree never should have been sent down. I'd rather see Darrel Powe over Pyatt at this point.
I don't wanna see powe or pyatt or pouliot I hate the letter P now. Asham Boyle dorsett should be this teams 4th line let them grind and beat on people
Kreider stepan Nash
Hagelin Richards zucc
No idea brassard Callahan
Asham Boyle dorsett
Third line they need to call up kids for that last wing spot see if any of them stick if not make a move for a winger

They have no kids. If you are looking to Hartford for wing answers there are none.

At least not this season. Maybe when Fast is healthy

Agreed and I don't want people to get confused by what I say, bringing asham doesn't make us a good team but it helps with what we lack in toughness and a guy who will score more than 1 point in a year . Pyatt is a bum, Dom Moore is OK but easily replaced. I wanna see asham Boyle dorsett because when Boyle has wingers who will throw down n grind he plays better

A guy who will try to create a spark for the team can be invaluable. Just look at the Calgary thread where they were all unwilling to move McGrattan. I think that's what made Prust such an integral part of the 11-12 team along with his PK time.

Pure speculation but I'd bet this move was over AV's objections. He apparently thinks getting pushed around is a big piece of the Stanley Cup puzzle.

Not that Asham will change much with this group.

And that's why the prust Boyle fedotenko line was probably my favorite line then. It was what made this team go and they chipped in offensively. Dorsett is a decent replacement for prust but all the vets they brought in to try n replace Feds is a BUST

Yeah, he's the reason the players he was given are soft as hell. Give it a rest.

Haha. This is what I imagine I'd look like if I were asked to start a Boeing 777 and get it ready for takeoff.

Press ALL the buttons!

He's just not dumb enough to think it makes any difference on winning or losing.

I'll give it a rest when the team shows some life under AV.

I read somewhere (perhaps on this board) someone questioning the call up of Miller, they wanted Asham instead. I believe it was said Asham was injured.
Could it be that he was, but he is now good to go, and that explains this move?
