Phil Posted April 25, 2019 Share Posted April 25, 2019 ?One hundred percent,? said ex-Ranger Tony Granato, now the University of Wisconsin coach who made Miller his first recruit when he got his dream job three seasons ago. ?There?s no question that he could be a first pair in the NHL.? ?The comparables for me for the NHL, I think worst-case scenario ? and this is no slam ? is Jay Bouwmeester,? Granato said of the 16-year NHL veteran. ?Bouwmeester?s been a really good player for a long time. Bouwmeester skates and recovers and I think Kee?s got some more to his game than Jay might (have). Jay?s really really good and he?s had a great career. I think (Miller) is going to be as good or better than Jay. Size, skating ability, recovery ability. The recovery ability and the athleticism on plays that ? NHL players are going to make plays ? but his ability to not bail out on himself and to be able to recover is different than any other player, young defenseman, that I?ve seen. Where Miller wants to go is from Madison, Wisconsin to Madison Square Garden. But he is not in a rush to get there. He won?t say definitively, but Miller won?t turn pro now, instead planning and training for his sophomore season with the Badgers. Granato and the Rangers? front office all believe he will play one more year of college hockey, at least. ?I think that would probably be the best decision for me,? Miller told The Athletic. https://theathletic.com/943197/2019/04/24/after-a-successful-season-at-wisconsin-tracing-rangers-prospect-kandre-millers-eventual-path-from-madison-to-madison-square-garden/ Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
