You know your 19-year old rookie is playing with confidence, when he has no problems busting out this move in the middle of a game...
...while I knew Miller was a talented kid, I never expected this kind of swagger and borderline cockiness from him. Absolutely love watching him fly down the ice tapping his stick for the puck. What teenager with just 15 NHL games under his belt does that?
...he is proving he can handle the heavy workload as evidenced by his strong play centering the second line in Richards absence and Torts has taken a liking to the kid which is always a good thing. Says a lot that Miller is getting the nod over a six-year veteran in Boyle who is pretty darn good in the face-off circle and the penalty kill.
...amazing job scouting once again by Gordie Clark. I don't think I was the only one who shouted "Who?!?!?!" when Miller was announced as the Rangers 2011 first round draft pick.
J.T.Miller is going to be a top level NHL player.Just hope he steps up his game this year and starts to be the dangerous player that he is.You can see his talent and his ability, its clearly evident at only 19.He gives good depth skill and scoring at the middle lines right now.After we lost AA and Dubi, that helps a lot.
@TheNYRBlog his two-way play is much improved, and had several stellar shifts last night trying to make a real difference on the ice
It's with mixed blessings that I watch a 19 year old seemingly have more poise and confidence than some of the veterans on this team that make a lot of money and who should be leading this team to a Stanley Cup. Unfortunately, I don't think we even get within sniffing distance this year.
@TheNYRBlog I think right after that move the Sens broke out and Miller skated 200 ft and broke up a 2on-1 which is equally as impressive
@TheNYRBlog I said last year that he may be even better than Kreider. I liked the way he was described as,"close to NHL ready with size\/spd"
@RosiTed You're 100% correct. Terrible job by me not mentioning that.
@AnnoyingJoe So sweet.
@cwgatti And his game is absolutely perfect for Torts' system.
