J.T. Miller | #9 | C/W

JT Miller has been getting more and more aggressive lately.  I love it.  Tonight he is hitting and cross checking when needed. 
 

I hope that mean nasty attitude is rubbing off on the team...exactly what we need.  The fact Virtanen fought is a good sign too.

Virtanen prob felt some heat for not stepping up after Petey got hit last game

I have just seen unfriendly looks between them over the last month or so.  Also have noticed a few discussions between them coming back to the bench that looked heated.  Nothing that I can quote but just a feeling.

One thing that I didn't realize about Miller until we got him is that he is actually a power forward. A power forward with skill and speed. Well worth a 1st rounder. 

 

Only knock on him might be that sometimes, he slows the play down too much. Noticed a few times where there was a moment or two to pass the puck to Petey and he chose to keep the puck. I understand that he doesn't want to give away possession in case the pass doesn't connect but sometimes you've gotta take some chances.

Well looking at his skill set and nastiness, we got exactly what this team needed and we could not have got a better player who was up for grabs, JB killed it!

That first rounder in deep draft year might just be worth it for a 26 year old, power forward in Miller. 

 

I love picks and prospects, but JT has changed the way this team plays. 

 

I'm so glad he's a Canuck, and he's signed to such a great deal.

Meh. Every draft year is a deep draft year until it isnt.

 

2012- "this draft could be the best since 2003"

 

2020- lol

Yeah and add to that, the percentage of the probability of making it in the NHL sharply can drop off after the first 3 picks usually and how often have we got in the top 3? With our luck? Ugh... Add to that even top pick has been a bust when a McDavid was expected...

 People forgot about that when JT was traded for, as gm do you make the surefire safe bet or do you sacrifice for a risk?

 At this stage of our build, JB did the right thing.. tired of this franchise selling out our future to appease the "win it all now" crowd instead of building.. how well has that worked for us so far? Thinking the zero Stanley cups no matter how close we got answers that.. 

 We're close to that finally but still a cpl years away, and having to draft a kid that will "hopefully" become a JT Miller would have been redundant and he can help mentor as he came with leadership skills. I was shocked by how many even considered we lost on JT's trade.. way the opposite.. as of today, JT is tied for points with Petey and Ovechkin at 57 points.

That 2012 draft year in hindsight looks decent actually. 

 

Supposedly this year is supposed to be a deep draft. We'll see what prospects we land come the draft.

The top 4 picks in the 2012 draft might be the worst in the last decade, however the rest of the 1st round has produced some solid NHL players. All of them have played in the NHL.

Here's a portion about JT Miller from a NYR fan site (topic was originally about Lias Andersson)

 

https://www.foreverblueshirts.com/lias-andersson-breaks-silence-about-leaving-rangers-and-injury/

 

I have alluded many times to JT Millers immense internal strengths and how he weathered the ups and downs of an emerging hockey career. This allowed him to survive AVs disproportionate treatment of players. In the end, he has carved out a very decent career in the NHL. Lias appears to be far less resilient and this has likely contributed to his on ice performance and behavior off the ice. The kid needs help from someone other than a hockey coach or GM.

It's really starting to look like the 1st line is Miller's line rather than Pettersson's, and that this is becoming his team. He looks like a leader out there, deserves an "A", and is controlling the play most of the time. Pettersson has really softened up down the stretch, a bit how he did in his rookie season, whereas Miller is just consistently getting better and better. Massive 3 assists against the Bruins, he's the guy out there on the forecheck causing turnovers and leading to A-grade scoring chances, and now he's got two trigger men to set up.

 

So far he's taking over MVP rights in my opinion.

Prime player nearing his peak, pretty good chemistry with anyone on top two lines.  Good chance it’s us vs Vegas in round 2 like our chances.
