Miller: To Be the Best You Have to Play Against the Best

millerusaIn a story at Blueshirts United, 2011 first round pick J.T. Miller has this to say about his first Team USA World Junior tryout…

“It’s a great challenge, but I love it,” explained Miller. “I believe that to be the best you have play against the best. So I am loving this opportunity.”

…i love that this kid just wants to get better and is willing to do whatever it takes to get there. Really rooting for him to make the team.

Miller was held scoreless as Team USA lost to Sweden 4-1 in an evaluation camp exhibition game yesterday. Team USA coach Dean Blais was less than excited with the play of Miller’s line…

“That should be a good line with speed and Bjugstad should be a strong, powering center,” said Blais. “Whether he played like that or not — I’m not saying that he didn’t, but I don’t think that was maybe their best game as a line. That should be a better line than it showed tonight.”

…probably the first negative thing I’ve seen regarding Miller since he was drafted. Hope this isn’t a trend.
