    Given the mgmt interviews, the Rangers believed one or more teams likely would select him before 26. I too remember Anaheim as the rumored team. Of course, Miller being from Minn, the Wild were a worry at 24. And St Louis has an excellent track record with their 1sts.

    I was surprised it cost a 2nd to move to #22, instead of our early 3rd. But it seemed steep only for a moment, until I realized we got the player I wanted! How often does that happen? There are a few threads in this section that show I wasn't the only one who liked Miller before the draft. We are unanimously delighted, so far. No Wisc games till mid Jan, but we have the Worlds to watch.

    Lots of schools close this time of year, so I'm not surprised. Also, this would allow those in college to play in WJC.

    K’Andre Miller, D, New York Rangers (Wisconsin-Big 10)

    Miller currently is Wisconsin’s leading scorer, which is pretty good for a guy who played mostly a defensive role with the USNTDP last season. Miller’s always had the size and great skating, but he’s shown more confidence with the puck this season, leading to a lot more offense. He’s expected to play a significant role for Team USA and is one of the top NHL prospects on the team.
    From Pronmans U-20 preview.

    Currently the 47th best NHL prospect according to Pronman's midseason ranking:

    47. K’Andre Miller, D, New York Rangers

    Miller has had a great freshman season. His world juniors didn’t go well as he got sick. At Wisconsin, though, he leads his team in scoring and is one of the better freshmen in the country. He’s a fantastic skater for a big man and competes hard at both ends. He’s shown more offense this season than I saw from him previously. I’m not fully convinced he’s a natural puck-mover/playmaker, but he can rush with the best of them and has solid skills.

    2 more primary assists last night, though the Badgers were shellacked by UMN.

    How has he been defensively? I’ve barely watched him, and thebfew games I did were dominant wins.

    The NYR site said he leads the team in +/-, but as we know that doesn't tell you all that much.

    guess he went hard into the boards and is pretty bruised up. Granato said no knee damage but he's probably out for a week or so just the same.

    Granato said he might be out for a week or so. It's been a month, WI played their 1st game of the Big 10 playoffs last night, and he's still out.

    it's safe to say that we won't be seeing Miller until next season. Which might be better for everyone....

    Miller played a really good game for USA white today according to Twitter. Check out @StarsStripesHKY for some highlights!

    Pronmans report on the best prospects from the junior showcase:

    K’Andre Miller, D, New York Rangers

    Miller looked like a returning player, being a quality player at both ends of the rink. His size, physicality and skating has always stood out. What I noticed at the camp was his ability to jump up into attacks, to make plays and to impact the transition game more than I did when he was with the USNTDP. He had a good year at Wisconsin, getting power play time and providing a fair amount of offense. “Being quick in transition is a huge part of my game, whether it’s jumping up into a rush or breaking up plays,” said Miller.

    “He’s a high-end prospect,” said one scout of Miller.
