Sorry but that's absolute bull. You can't compare Miller to Jurco because both have completely different roles on this team. miller is clearly a 4th line guy who is relied on on the PK, whereas Jurco is a scoring forward who is counted on to use his body and speed to create offensive chances
If we actually send Miller down, what does that achieve? Who's going to play on the 4th line? Cleary? Sorry, but that 4th line thus far has been tremendous through 5 games, and if Glendening had the hands of Ovechkin he'd be leading the league in scoring with the number of chances he's had.
You can't fix one problem by creating another.
As for Franzen, I know a lot of you hate him, but screw it. He's been on fire thus far. He's 34. We know exactly what he is. And oh yea. Hockey's a contact sport. I'm sure they're far more injuries that ever get reported to the press. Doesn't make it more or less frustrating when they happen, but they just do. Luckily he's not out long term and it's only 7 day IR. So can please, just for once, when we get an injury this season, can all the haters hold off with the 'i told you so's', and actually enjoy this team for what it's worth, which right now is looking quite promising.
