    MFK: Miller, Nash, Grabner

    Which player do you want for the next 3 or so years?
    Starting with the 2018-19 season.

    Use whatever criteria you want.
    Can only pick 1.


    Starting next season.
    Trading away Nash/Grabner at deadline is irrelevant.

    Deal Nash. Deal Grabner. Deal Miller. Re-sign Grabner.

    For me this is a tough one. Grabner is AJT. Love what Nash brings, and can bring. And I dont like Miller... but, I dont know if I want to give up on him, even if he costs 1m more for and extra season.

    I'm justifying it through a long-term lense, knowing Miller can bring back a serious haul to complement the same hauls from Grabner and Nash. Like three firsts, two top prospects, and one or two ancillary picks/prospects.

    Draft another Miller with one of them.

    I would trade Miller in a heartbeat. I don't think he's ever going to anything close to consistent. I think Grabner would be the one that would offer next year's Rangers more than either of the other so I'll go with him coming back.

    Plus, he'd probably be the cheapest.

    What has Miller a bottom six guy ever done to justify a haul coming back this way?

    What am I missing about what he's done so far in his career?

    He's one of the top point-producing 3rd liners in the league. Maybe he can do more given more responsibility?
    He can also play wing or center on any line. That's worth something. Plus, he's the youngest of the trio, and, maybe a bit more untapped potential? If we are "rebuilding", maybe give him an extended look in the top 6? I think he could be a great complementary player, just have to find that other guy.

    Miller, versatile won't cost too much and tremendous potential. We give up on him he ends up in Pittsburgh with Sid

    "Won't cost too much".

    If you think $4.5 to $5M over five to seven years isn't much, sure.

    OK agree to disagree, to me he's wildly inconsistent and borderline head case. Toe Blake doesn't make him much more than he's shown. What he's shown again tonight is a guy that mails it in and coasts and for a guy that's been recently benched that's inexcusable.

    I dont disagree with any of this, and completely understand.

    I always complain the Miller only shows up for one month a season!

    None of the above. Miller is one of the many mediocre players that put this team where they are. Asked to be more than a 3rd liner. Can't do it. Next.

    Is this a trick question? Can’t I trade everybody?

    Money aside, I’d take Nash since he offers more than the other two at both ends of the rink.

    Money consideration counts? I’d take Miller IF, and only if he plays wing. That implies we get a C.

    While Grabner appears to be the choice based on money, he doesn’t bring that physical play when needed. Miller gives you that.

    I would obviously move Miller for the right deal. I saw a Penguins fan on another forum who suggested "JT Miller for Sprong+Gustavsson+Hunwick (cap)+2018 1st+2019 2nd" No doubt we would do it in a heartbeat, and its probably an overpayment the pens won't do, but atleast it means that other fans (and maybe GMs) value Miller a lot higher then some people in here.

    I voted keep Miller despite knowing he has shit for brains, and will likely have the worst attitude in the dressing room in times like this.

    Why? I don't know.

    I'm convinced he'd play better for a different coach. Yeah he's shown signs of stupidity but the guy has fire, and he plays a tough game. That's what you need in a playoff series....a guy that can grind.

    Now, I'm not going to pay 4.5 - 5 million a year for a 3rd liner, so yeah, I'd keep him but for at most 3 million a year....(THE MOST!!!!). Anything more than that and see ya!
