    He's going to be ready sooner rather than later, as I've been saying for some time. The kid was born to be a professional hockey player, he didn't want to be in school. Now he's where he wants to be, and he's going to flourish.

    I think it’s time for a player discussion thread but I don’t usually create threads. Too much pressure.

    Without getting too ahead of myself, Miller will not have many weaknesses as he matures. The occasional bad decision-making doesn’t concern me, because that’s typical of rookies of course. So smooth and looks so comfortable out there. He’s a natural, and he understands the nuances and intricacies of the game. I don’t expect amazing and/or consistent play from rookies, but I want to see flashes, and I saw plenty tonight from him.

    I’m curious what your ahead-of-yourself opinion is.

    Exactly. The growing pains will be there, and should be expected throughout the year, but he just needs experience and minutes. The difference in confidence that I saw from Game 1 period 1 to Game 2 period 3 was night and day.

    Lol that whole post was me getting ahead of myself, but how can you not? I think Miller will develop into an all-around d-man with above average skill. That’s what I meant.

    That's not really going out on a limb.

    It’s going to be funny when we go back to this thread after he’s won his 4th Norris and 2nd Smythe.

    Said it in another thread, he's playing in the NHL having only been a full-time defenseman for four full seasons prior to this. He's already good and he has so much additional room for growth.

    What I like is the movement, reach and agility for such a big guy. I can see why the Rangers hold him in high regard. When he puts on a little more weight, from 10--15 lbs he will be a monster. He has a very heavy shot too. Sooner or later he'll be taking shots from the point.

    Now that we see his game is he back to being our best D-prospect? Haha

    He's a unique player, really underrated with the general public.

    Looking back, I’m shocked he wasn’t picked like 7th or 8th, right after Hughes. Granted, it was a deep and talented draft class, and converting from forward to D makes you a raw prospect, but he offers a unique playing style in an NHL frame. You usually don’t expect big, fast guys to have the combination of hockey sense, skill, playmaking ability, and legit shutdown ability that Miller has, or at least is very capable of having. It’s almost unfair, and the guys who do have those attributes get drafted way earlier. His potential is honestly sky high.

    I’m trying to look for legit weaknesses in his game (apart from the obvious rookie growing pains), but I can’t find any. Has anyone here watched Miller play extensively?

    Miller was my favorite D prospect, but I honestly thought that Lundkvist was going to become the best defenseman out of him, Miller, and Schneider, although I still thought Miller had the highest potential. Now, Miller is absolutely our best prospect imo, besides Lafreniere. The jump from the NCAA to the NHL is a tough one, and Miller went above and beyond expectations. Let’s hope he keeps this up.

    This is a really bad way to look at a draft. There were valid reasons why 20-ish other teams passed on him on draft day. There were question marks that on the day made sense.

    That move he made going outside in on a 1-on-1 was silky. He also stopped opposing rushes all night and was escaping pressure with his feet and making solid outlets all night.
