Miller may be doing well on the ice, but he is a goddamn liar.

The blue sticks of his are kind of odd looking with all that red. Eaves used to have blue ones too.

Right now both him and Eaves have the same amount of goals this season. Good stuff.

Miller is exactly what we need in a 3rd/4th liner. These types of guys that other teams pass on, complete teams like ours.

Drew Miller and Patrick Eaves in the playoffs will cause linematching headaches for opposing coaches.

Miller/Eaves have been my favorite story so far this year. I hope we've found a couple solid players for our bottom 6 for years to come.

Miller has really helped our Penalty Killing unit and when we get healthy again, I think Leino will be one of the odd men out of the lineup--there is no way I would sit Eaves and or Miller for Leino right now!

Wow... You hoped right.

Both of those bastards have bloomed nicely. Love their work out there.

I just wanted to note that I don't think Miller has the scoring upside that Cleary had coming into Detroit. A guy like Eaves better suits that comparison.

Miller's scoring upside is similar to a guy like Malty or Draper's.


Cleary

2005-2006, 77games, 3 goals, 12 assists, 15 points, +5
2006-2007, 71 games, 20 goals, 20 assists, 40 points, +6

Miller (with the Wings)

2009-2010, 18 games, 4 goals, 2 assists, +6 (after another goal last night)
2010-2011.....? we'll see.

Cleary took a year to really fit in with the wings and find his groove, but if you want to compare him to Draper...he had 24 goals and 40 points that one year, so i'll take that from miller thumbup.gif

agreed 100% - even with his solid play (this is not a knock on Williams point), I really hope Eaves and Miller stay in and Williams and Leino out once everyone is healthy...

All I have to say about Holland and our off-season:

Here in this one as well

Here in this one too

Holland is a damn good GM. period.

AHHHHHH, no... this will NEVER happen... Williams will, and should, play when he is healthy, period.

Miller jsut plays hard and he's been being rewarded although since he has come in Abdelkader has started to fade away

I think Miller has come in and done an unbeleiveable job considering what I'd imagine most woudl have expected from him coming off waivers from Tampa. He has 4 goals and 3 assists in 20 games and he plays a hard working game. This guy can kill penalties, is a plus 6 (only 2 behidn the team lead) and continues to improve each game.

Patrick Eaves fits the same mold. With such low expectations coming into this season he has done absolutely everything right to earn another contract for next year. This guy busts his ass, forechecks, skates hard, creates chances, kills penalties and is starting to look a little like the rookie Ottawa loved a few years ago. Having 4 goals and 6 assists through 26 games is really unbelieveable for a guy that was dumped by Carolina only to be bought out by Boston. If Eaves ends up with 25-30 points this season, which is about on pace for, then I'd have to say that signing was a huge success.

I would hate to see either of these guys not stay in the line up when our injured players return and I would hate it even more to lose them in the off season. The good news is that both players are RFAs at season's end.

I really liked Williams on the power play (not that we got to see very much of it). I didn't like his play the first time he was here but I think he has gotten better since then.

In case anyone is unsure, I like Drew Miller. I think the kid will be in the NHL for many years to come. He has a great positive attitude and works his butt off.

As long as he keeps that up, he has a very good chance to make himself a good career in Detroit.

Yeah, Williams was pretty good here, at least offensively. He is not a complete disaster defensively, but could use a bit of work.
