Miller projects as a 20-plus goal scorer with a knack for setting up his teammates. If anything, his ceiling is a No. 1 center, but most likely, he'll be a great second-line center.
Miller has great size and speed, and uses those skills to get to pucks. He can use his body to shield himself from defenders and has a dangerous wrist shot.
He only has two goals and two assists. The offense is not quite there yet. That's to be expected. He's still adjusting to the NHL game.
That said, he creates a lot of chances. They aren't going in yet, but that doesn't mean he isn't around the net.
In fact, Miller spends a lot of the time around the net. He's an active player, by which I mean that when he's in the offensive zone, good things happen.
The puck will go into the net for Miller eventually. He'll get stronger and his shot will improve. He'll become more assertive as he gets more comfortable in the league.
Keep in mind, he's only played in 23 games. But it's there. You can see flashes of his offensive potential. He has a rifle of a shot, he's a deft passer and a strong skater. That combination is a recipe for success.
It's hard to think that Miller is dangerous when the puck isn't going in the back of the net. But that's not what hockey is all about. It's about puck possession and creating chances. That's what Miller has shown a real talent for. The goals will come with time.
In the meantime, Miller is a player that needs to be accounted for by opposing defenses. He creates chances and brings a unique energy to the team. That's invaluable.
