Realistically speaking PVD.. We both know Miller will be playing all 82 games. Management/coaches like him too much. It seems Jurco, Pulk, Mantha are SOL this year, perhaps even AA as well.
Unless Neilsen's PK ability makes Miller expendable. Which imo it should but might not.
Hopefully there's a trade.
Agreed, the silverfox will ride again. I was just saying what I'd prefer.
If you slot Miller in for Jurco, though, that is a likely roster to me:
(pulk, Jurco, Ott in GR)
Those that are saying there must be trade for a Dman in the works, I think should temper their expectations. We basically have Nielson and Vanek in for Datsyuk and Richards. Ott is an extra forward, but if Ott is only called up for injuries then there's no roster crunch. Of course there's Mantha, but I doubt he's on the opening roster.
I'd like a trade for D help though. Ny, Shea could be shed could be replaced by Mantha and Ott/Jurco. Of course, E and Howard are contracts we would like to get rid of if there was a way to put them in the deal. We would need to send out a Dman for anyone coming in.
