Anyone else feel there might be a rift in the locker room? Buddy of mine noticed a few games ago a look that Miller gave Petey. I have to say I've noticed it too. They don't talk on the bench and the Habs game Miller was calling for the puck and Petey decided to just dump it in.

Miller is different. Very talented and competitive. He has been prone to d-side errors during this losing stretch. As far as his line mates are concerned he uses everyone from what I see. I did see him talking to Petey on the bench. I get the vibe he puts out but then I could suggest that Boeser is like that too. Miller is 4-5 years older and a vet at 26. Maybe he isn't shy about telling BB and EP40 what he thinks should be happening on the ice.

To me its the way he does the job without the puck that has made me the most impressed. The way he positions himself to get to areas where he cuts off angles and can distribute the puck and regain the puck again is fantastic. Exactly the completion needed to a sniper like brock and a magic man like Petey. Since everyone takes notice of petey he and brock should get many chances to score. its simply a great match. When those three get some pressure against the oposing net its so much fun to watch. a solid 1st line imo.

On pace for exactly 30 goals and 50 assists this year, absolutely decimating his previous bests. Of course, the numbers will look very good after a 4-point game, but the point stands that Miller is better than he's ever been before.

That was a nifty high skill play on the PP. His game is really rounding out nicely, reminds me of a playmaker version of Kesler in his prime.

Not sure we'd be even average without Hughes and Miller too. It goes both ways. The four of them combined have lifted the Canucks out of an abyss. All four of them are just as important as each other IMO.

 

Horvat, Boeser, and maybe Edler are close behind.

I tried to be a member of HF Canuck's Board a while ago (when we were down here) but got into too many battles with posters about our players' good qualities.  I was very quickly banned for being a troll.  My positivity was not accepted.  Crazy place.  Still don't understand, fully, the whole troll thing.  How can a fan be a troll, who is positive about their team and players on their own team's board?  Wouldn't the negative posters be the ones who are trolls?  

You are short and hairy like a troll. Just sayin'......

Not really, finally put on a real line consistently and it simply wasn't utilized in that capacity playing on top teams who already had plenty of firepower but with his good defensive side he wasn't used top line much like he is here so all that skill is paying off way larger than what we paid...

As awesome as this trade has been, nobody would have predicted this:

Miller just 2 points behind our wonder boy Petey!!   Wow.

 

JT Miller should have costs two first round picks or a very high 1st rouder (which Tampa most likely does not get).  I love hindsight!!

 

:lol:

Miller is kind of what I hoped Goldobin would turn into. A guy who's production masks the fact that he has like 5 brutal turnovers a game. 

 

Miller honestly makes so many bone headed plays but his work ethic and offensive contributions make up for it and then some.

Also far bigger and tougher too.

He has 27 giveaways on the season, which actually ties him with Stamkos for the third least amount of giveaways of anyone in the top 30 of league scoring, with a giveaway/takeaway +/- of +9, which ranks him second of all players in the top 30 of league scoring.

Halford is a Team 1040 host, and Athletic writer. But most of all, he's a fan of the team. And he made that tweet in the heat of the moment.

 

Some fans are pissed that the Canucks traded a 1st round pick - Halford is one, I am another. The team very well may have given up a talent equivalent to a Podkolzin, Hughes, or even Pettersson for a 2nd line winger halfway through his prime.

 

Hopefully the team comes together and the pick is late, but given our last few seasons saying that is a sure thing seems somewhat absurd...even delusional.

 

Nothing is a sure thing in sport.   The deal was made, life moves on and I would think if the Canucks used that pick and it turned into a player anywhere near Miller's performance this year they would be ecstatic with the pick so not sure about "delusional".

Wow, his actual stats in terms of giveaways is totally at odds with your statement.   I find him very responsible in his own zone.   Perhaps you have his number confused with someone else?

Likely the case of a few really bad ones sticking out in his mind and skewing his perspective more than the actual genuine quantity of giveaways.
