this makes me sad, Drew was and is a warrior for the Wings.  I will be unhappy to see him have a great year in (bleah) CHI.

There's no doubt he worked his ass off, but a good year for Miller is 10-15 points. Very replaceable and long overdue in my opinion.

But yeah, good luck Drew! From everything I've heard, seen and read, great guy.

@Jonas Mahonas So if Chicago signs Miller, does this mean Bowman is an idiot that needs to be fired?

Im not fooling myself.  I fully expect Miller to squeak out a $750k contract after Holland ditches AA.  After Cleary, Samuelsson, and Miller last year, I understand that Holland's stupidity is limitless.

He asked you about Bowman. 

Don't try to dodge the question

Not what I asked, so I will ask again. @Jonas Mahonas So if Chicago signs Miller, does this mean Bowman is an idiot that needs to be fired?

If Chicago (or any other team) doesn't sign Miller, and he retires, does this mean Holland is an idiot for keeping him as long as he did?

The fact that Miller even has a PTO speaks volumes to the way keyboard GMs treated him on this forum.

Care to explain? Booth also got a PTO, doesn't mean he's an NHL player anymore, who by the way I believe would be an upgrade over Miller. Dozens of players get PTO's every year, doesn't mean they'll get a contract. I doubt Miller gets a contract. If he does, good on him.

You mean if he does Stan Bowman is as dumb as Ken Holland. 

Nope, didn't say that at all actually... If Holland signs Miller with our cap situation and at the stage we are in our rebuild, with Bertuzzi ready to fill that role, yes he's an idiot. If Bowman or any other GM signs Miller because they have the cap space, and they're looking for a warm body as their 12th/13th forward, good for them, and great for Miller.

I could care less what players other GM's are signing. But Drew Miller has no place on this team, and if he somehow finds his way back, Holland truly is an idiot. Luckily for us, that's not going to happen.

if he has a great year it will be in the AHL.  He was a good soldier here, but he's slowed down.

And suppose our cap situation gets fixed and Holland wants a 12th/13th forward as Miller? Would it still be "good for them (us) and great for Miller?"

If my aunt had balls, she'd be my uncle.  I don't care about this question of yours, Señorita Flama Baita.  You and kickazz are the biggest offenders of the rules on here, but think you're so hardcore.  It's laughable.  And I do laugh!

 

Miller will never play for the hawks.

Yeah. And this one too.

So with no answer are we safe to assume theres a checkmate @kliq? The tally must be 100 to 0. 

You got taken to the matt in the AA thread.  This isn't even a debate.  Ive been asked a hypothetical is all.

You missed the part about it being stupid for us trying to rebuild and develop players. I'll say it again, Miller has no place on this team, and fortunately for us, he won't be on this team.
