Because, I am tired of people trashing miller that he doesn't bring anything we don't already have... having 3 players that can kill a penalty isnt enough, and hes probably our best defensive forward on the team... he doesnt play a flashy high powered offensive game or fight, so he doesn't get noticed like Flip or some enforcer. Hes a solid forth liner, and I think the wings are a better team with him.

1. He doesn't He's a poor man's Patty Eaves. Eaves outclasses Miller in every field imaginable.

2. Datsyuk, Zetterberg, Filppula, Cleary Helm, etc... for fun.

yeah I got baited there and actually thought he was serious

but for the record

abby,helm,eaces,flip,dats.z,cleary are all just as good if not better then miller defensively.

that is all.

Fair deal. Would rather keep Ritola then him if we do sign Modano, but that is a good price considering how well he did last year.

Can't complain about the cap hit at all, but the forward logjam is kind of ridiculous.

really good deal for miller and it may make him very attractive to many teams if he were to be traded at some point.

abby,helm,eaces,flip,dats.z,cleary are all just as good if not better then miller defensively.

that is all.

Defensive forward meaning player who plays the best in the defensive role (IE 3/4th line) so that takes out Flip, Dats, Z, Cleary. Helm has great speed but, I still think Miller is better, Eaves is better offensively.. but if you watched last year, it was close but i think Miller did a better job. Abby... I really can't say hes not been in the NHL long enough to judge how good he truly is. If I were to say the best forward bar none for defensive play it would be Z or D no question. I should have clarified my point that I was talking about the bottom 6 players.

1. He doesn't He's a poor man's Patty Eaves. Eaves outclasses Miller in every field imaginable.

2. Datsyuk, Zetterberg, Filppula, Cleary Helm, etc... for fun.

Well lets look at the stats

Miller had a better +/- 3 less points more gwg, and only played 1 more game than Eaves.

:lol: Like PP goals? Game winning goals? +/-? Oh wait... Miller was better than Eaves in all those categories.

But hey-- Eaves had 3 more points last year so he's head and shoulders above Miller!

Only on LGW can a guy score 10g/19pts, be 3rd most used forward on the PK ice, have 3 GW goals (tied with Datsyuk) and be put down as a poor man's Eaves.

Is Eaves better? Sure, although one could argue they're about even. Your post makes it sounds like people are comparing Cleary to Datsyuk.

It would be if we were in mid October right now.

Holland isn't going to be carrying 3 spare forwards when the season opens.

Eaves is overrated on here. Sure he's a good player, but I don't think he outperformed Miller in any way last year. I'd say they finished about even. Both were integral parts of our PK last year.

Eaves:
22 Points
128 Hits, 44 Blocked Shots
2 Fights
2:16 PK Time On Ice Per Game

Miller:
19 Points
97 Hits, 47 Blocked Shots
0 Fights
1:49 PK Time On Ice Per Game

I'll take the first guy, thanks. Not to mention that Eaves possesses better hockey sense and a much better shot than Miller as well. I'm fine with the Miller signing, but Eaves is definitely the better player in my eyes.
