AV wants more ‘commitment’ from Miller; if not, ‘he’ll be a good minor-leaguer”
From Pat “Stop Coaching” Leonard of the New York Daily News:
Vigneault says JT Miller has to "figure it out" and show more "commitment." If he does, good. If not, "he’ll be a good minor-leaguer"— Pat Leonard (@PLeonardNYDN) April 3, 2014
And one more from The Record’s Andrew Gross:
Regarding JT Miller being sent back to Hartford, AV says Miller needs to "figure it out," pointedly says both on and off the ice.— Andrew Gross (@AGrossNewsday) April 3, 2014
The Rangers announced yesterday that Miller had been assigned to the club’s AHL affiliate. In 30 NHL games this season, the 21-year-old has just three goals and three assists.
Miller was drafted 15th overall in 2011 out of the U.S. National Development program.
“I’m a pretty competitive kid,” he said at the time. “I always want to compete and I’m pretty hard to play against, so I think that’s my best attribute.”
Clearly, Vigneault would like Miller to start proving it.
