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


Recommended Posts

So the condition on the 1st ´20 pick trades for Miller is:

 

“Should the Canucks miss the playoffs in 2020, the pick defers to 2021”?

 

oh now that’s pretty. Well done Benning.

With his OT goal tonight, Miller has tied his 13 goals from last year (75 games), doing it in just 30 games this year. He's on pace for 85 points, which would demolish his previous best of 58 points.

and he seems to pot em at crucial times in games which is more important, you can score points but if you still lose by being out scored then how does that help anything but personal stats?  Or like how you said for instance OT winner...  says it all..    and fans said JB paid too much?  NOT! One F of a player!  JB smoked one out of the park, for a condition first that may or may not ever make the nhl, odds are so/so at best plus we have a log jam at forward with Hogs n Pods on their way, plus madden, etc so it was pretty good timing and again, JB killed it...  delivered a top 6 guy and came out in spades..  and he looks like he's having a blast out there and not heading for a crash anytime soon, even losing a player in the upcoming draft won't hurt too much because of excess of forwards but JT is perfect for the team now and for the next few years as we get even better as JB gets out of the 2 LOU contracts and we'll be at par again with no bad contracts after that, things are looking up!  

whoa Rous is klling it too!   good timing getting him back..

darn

well for those who like shiny draft pick coupons

i think we could trade miller for a higher ranked 1st rounder and a 2nd rounder

because of his production and great contract

who is for trading him now for some draft picks ?

Reminds me of Kesler, his attitude, style of play, heavy shot. 

 

Doesn’t have that trash talk or physical edge as Kes did, but he does finish his checks. It’s still early though, you never know.

 

So nice to have a player like that again.

He has an edge to his game that BB does not and that EP40 is trying to have. My hope is that Miller can teach these two.

Not only for those two players, but for a number of young guys.  I don't think JB could have found a better mentor for the team's young forwards than Jonathan Tanner Miller.

He has a mental toughness that shines. I love his interviews. A very intelligent hockey guy.

IMO; of all the acquisitions that JB made in the off season, J.T. Miller is by far the best of the bunch and well worth a 1st round pick regardless of which year it turns out to be.

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.

Way too speculative to merit any credibility imo.

I might be projecting a little, but I've thought there's been some tension between Miller & others lately.. likely just the slump..

 

I am a little concerned that there's frustration / confusion as far as the coaching and /or systems go.. that could not only make for an unhappy group, but really doesn't point to a successful season

 

I was quite surprised that some the coaching staff was extended.. in my eyes, the only safe ones are Manny & Ian, the rest are on notice - & some should have been for longer than others.. 

 

that said, most of the old core are brittle, & most of the new core are still wet behind the ears.. tempered expectations.. I think if this happens 2 seasons from now, Green should be sweating..

Winning is fun; losing reveals one’s true character.

I guess I can't argue with that, although I'm not completely sure what you're getting at there.. are you saying Miller doesn't have great character because he's frustrated? I would hope none of the team is content with losing, but at the same time that doesn't mean there should be in-fighting..

 

there is a process to improvement & losing can & should be an important part of it..

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.
