    Wow, came into this thread and found out that Miller is more captain material than Bo, and even though we have evidence that Miller is shocked by what management did losing a handful of contributors, it turns out Miller secretly has something against Petey.

    I'll just go back to the other universe where electrons are negatively charged and protons are postitively charged.

    In a world where nitpicking secretly pulls the strings of the marionettes of NHL front offices, anything is possible.

    Oh shit, I forgot -- should I get Benning fired? I should have offered a long time ago. I just have to stop nitpicking for a day, maybe two tops.

    we definitely have an ownership issue here and I can’t see us winning if they keep playing puppet master.

    I don't want JT Miller gone. Flush this season down the toilet. Get a good pick. Hopefully Jim and co. gone and we can retool the D.

    JT Miller back with fans in the seats and fire in his belly again.

    You don't get players with his combination of skills and grit very often. Don't sour on him. Sour on the regime and management for taking us 2 steps back this year.

    Agreed. Trading Miller would be a mistake. Must be frustrating for him as he came here with a great attitude, put his body, heart and soul into what was an oustanding MVP-like season and became a leader on our team...only for the team to take a huge step back and not even give him a letter when it was all said and done. He'll recover imo, but we might not last seasons Miller for a while.

    You could always see the passion and intensity with Miller but being emotional is a double edge sword. He kind of reminds me of the guy you meet playing NHL hockey drop-in games online. If you miss a pass or don't give them the puck when they want it they start sabotaging the game by going offside intentionally, trying to score on your own goalie, etc. out of spite.

    In a perfect world they'd clean house with the front office and most of the coaching staff and Miller would go back to being the player from last season. But I don't think this is a situation you can let fester for very long because it looks pretty toxic right now.

    Puppet master / gas lighter extraordinaire.

    They're playing games with people's lives and careers. Vrbata moved his entire damn family over to Vancouver and ownership tanked the team in his second season. That f***ing blows goats.

    I don't know about you, but I wouldn't want my captain to be visibly sulking on the ice for games in a row. Horvat's a quiet leader who lets his game do the talking. Even when they've been down 5-1, he's one of the few guys who is still finishing checks and isn't just skating through the play.

    Miller, as someone put above, is a double-edged sword. When things are going well, he's driving the bus and making things happen, but when they're not, he just seems to disconnect and give up.

    The fact that his name makes him sound like a beer guzzling party guy in a teen movie.

    So much assuming going on with this thread, but this one's the worst. I get if you're speculating, but you're stating JT being pissed at EP as if it were a fact and you play a role in their lives or something LOL.

    He's the only player on the top line with strength and plays a heavy game. I would stop watching this team if they moved on from him unless Podkolzin became a top line player. Horvat seems to only be a threat on the PP most games and honestly, hardly ever plays a heavy game, despite being capable. You hardly see him working the boards/playing a possession game anymore. Miller does the work that most do not want to do, his physical play usually keeps a play happening that would have otherwise ended. yes he makes boneheaded plays where passes out to nobody, giving up a 2 on 1 but that's something you take with all the good, as long as thats minimized, there will always be stretches where the number of times is higher.

    An added bonus, he can actually stand up for Pettersson. Miller is no slouch in the fighting department. I am sorry but Jordie Benn allowing the other guy to throw 10 free punches at him is only boosting the other guy's ego, you mean he gets to crush a star player and then beat up another player? that guy is going to get a raise at the end of the year, it's like giving the player bonus points, that player (simmonds as a recent example) is going to play the rest of that game with such confidence. Hughes does not feel better getting crushed and watching his teammate getting pummeled due to having to stand up for him. Losing a fight doesn't do alot for your teams morale (in the game). Having people who can stand up for teammates is meaningless if they lose everytime. (Dale Weise). Watching Miller stand up to Tkachuk and handling him pretty well was great to see

    I say it all the time, the difference in how fans treat players that aren't drafted and developed by them is quite amusing. It's obviously due to their lack of time investment into them but seeing that type of bias is so frustrating. It's like GMs trading for players because of their name or connection to said player, or because he has a square jaw or liked the interview. How do people not see when they have such bias towards certain players and have higher standards for some players and that it's clearly making their judgement poor. JT Miller is now killing penalties and doing a killer job at it (so far tonight)

    JT Miller was looking like the Patrick Sharp piece of this core, but his effort level and attitude has been terrible this year.

    Canucks winning that series against the Wild was massive, the trade would not be tracking well if we had to give up an unprotected first this year.
