    If Torts was our coach, JT Miller would have been benched for the rest of the game after that first goal last night.



    Edler obviously messed that play up but look at the difference between Schmidt and Miller here.

    He's putting up the points still but man he's been so disappointing this year.

    I've been saying it for a while. Demote him to 3C already.

    Ready to move him now. His value is high, but he is trending downwards. Nothing there defensively right now.

    Did he tweak his brain in the off season?

    Miller's effort level this season, described in one picture: [​IMG]

    What the hell happened? Last season he was an effort demon, always hustling, chasing pucks, winning the board battles and doing the hard work. Apparently he thinks he can be a cherry picking, lazy star now.

    Somebody asked the rhetorical question of how Miller would be faring if Torts was still his coach. I think Torts was his first NHL coach with the Rangers when they were trying to school him out of all of his brain-cramp turnovers as a rookie. Seemed to work once he got to Tampa, and for most of last year.

    But this year, it's back to the Ranger blue Miller. A huge reason why you can never judge a trade based on one good year.

    Is Tampa laughing all the way to the bank with those assets + cap relief we gave them? They dropped a baby from their roster and then picked up a stanley cup.

    So many bad takes
    It’s like a player can’t have a bad start of stretch
    Actually, he’s not even playing that bad

    He hasn't been good, but no way would I trade him. Easily our best forward last year. If Boeser keeps goin, and Petey bounces back, things could align next season.

    Or is it last year’s JT “80 point pace game breaker” Miller the one who didn’t look like himself?

    Because whether we want to admit or not, last year currently stands as the anomaly with this player not this year.

    I think they are obviously happy with the end result. I think the Canucks are happy with theirs as well. The Canucks got a 27 year old point per game 1st line winger on a good contract for what turned out to be the 20th and 71st overall picks. Should be able to beat that return in a Miller trade.

    Could Miller return a 20-24 year old top four D man?

    What about his visible pouting, whining and extreme lack of effort? Or is it just a bad take to expect professionalism out of one of our "leaders"?

    I'm pretty sure nobody is happy with what they have seen from Miller so far. You can't have a player acting the way he is night in and night out, and if our management can't recognize this then they are even more out of touch with reality than I thought

    One thing I noted that I don't know if its really a big deal or not but when he got put on COVID exposure list for living with Jordie Benn I thought it might be not a positive indicator that he's in it long term here that he doesn't have his own place or have his family here (although I totally understand why during COVID his family is back in Pennsylvania).

    yes but is he the game breaker he was last year? No.Not even close. His play has been pretty disinterested at times with no attention to detail. That’s sort of the things he was known for before he got to Vancouver and wasn’t in his game last year.

    Ya that's a bit weird. On the other hand, Miller might have let his lease lapse due to the return to play uncertainty?

    I want to give Miller the benefit of the doubt. This past year was probably the first time he spent so much time with family and it must be tough to be away from them for such an extended period of time. He lost his mother in law to brain cancer during the start of the playoffs and his wife is taking care of two young ones by herself back home miles away in a different country. COVID can impact one's mental health and we have no idea what's going on with Miller right now. There's been no trade requests reported. There's been no benching from Green. It's possible that he's playing through some things and the team is aware of it.

    No argument that his game has gone down this year.(he's still on a point per game pace as last year.)...a few other of the top players struggling as well.

    conveniently leaving out he’s been dreadful and a liability defensively this year, which he certainly wasn’t last year.

    Did he get sick with Covid, or just a close contact?
