Read: JT Miller’s Game Today/His Chances At Making The Rangers

Marvin Cupper;  Sean KuralyIn his last two games, JT Miller has one goal and four assists as he helps Team USA to the Gold Medal game this weekend at the WJC.

Miller has elevated his game, according to Chris Peters at the United States of Hockey and part of that has been due to the presence of Jimmy Vesey who was promoted to his line. He also praised Miller’s size, speed and ability to get pucks to the net.

Peters says ” It doesn’t always look pretty with Miller, but he finds a way to make plays and has done so expertly the last few contests.”

In the Hartford Courant, Paul Doyle writes that Miller is a “strong candidate” to join the Rangers if the lockout is settled.


Adam Rotter: If/when the lockout gets settled and the Rangers start, I think Miller will probably be invited to training camp but I think it’s more than likely that he spends the whole season with the Whale. He is just getting his feet wet down there and should start to play better, as he has, when he returns from the World Juniors. I don’t think the Rangers want to rush Miller and will instead let him fight for what will likely be open spots in 2013-14 after the cap comes down and they make some moves.

All I know is that even with his short comings Buster Skrine is a huge upgrade from Kyle Wilson

And now having read it... How many snaps/routes against AJ Green were those numbers on?

Also I want to emphasize that those agility numbers from Skrine aren't just excellent, they're league leading. Literally nobody in the last decade and a half has posted a 3-cone that fast

@Marcus Armstrong


36/15 I make it, although I did not chart this game.


Haden was injured early in the 2nd.

Unfortunately the Jets also made Stephen Hill, Vlad Ducasse and Geno Smith who they are today.

At least I don't have to do one for Cro, Harris or Revis.

I still maintain best scenario for Jets is for Dee to get back to 2nd half 2013 and preseason 2014 form and have him start opposite Revis. We would likely have Skrine as nickel and Cro as Dime. This would give us best group of Cb's.

How would Stevie Johnson be received?

@a57se As a field stretcher who is hit or miss with catching the ball.

He would be a slight upgrade over Kerley in slot, a little more speed. Okay if price is right.

@harold 

The guy had three 1000 yard seasons with Gailey in buffalo and 75 + catches every year...I'd say he is an upgrade from Kerley...I like his physicality.


harold

But since the injuries he has not been the same player. That why he is an upgrade but not nearly the upgrade he would have been 3 years ago.

Price would need to be extremely attractive for me.

@harold


Well he wouldn't have been an upgrade if we got him 3 years ago either because he'd have been injured!

@Bent @harold 

A one year show me contract seems to be in play for him, no?

Yes, but I would want him on an incentive laden deal

Don't think cj spiller is gonna happen. Who's next up for us?

Would be nice but i don't think he will be on the board when we pick in the 2nd round

@samb

If no Spiller, and no Helu or Vereen, we should probably just sit on the money and draft an RB.

@samb

Crazy Chip Kelly's probably going to trade UP and take him.

Haha wait, Revis said he wants Cro back so they can be Batman and Robin?


Robin sucks!  That's like really hurtful to Cro!

Nice write-up Bent!

Skrine can handle WR screens real well...I like that especially going against NE twice a year.

With Revis as a mentorand working the film room together, this kid will grow...

(fighting the urge to ask you how many movies Robin has been in in the last 10 years)

Seems like that was a play the Jets have struggled with at times over the year but he seemed to deal with it every single time!

If Skrine is really good at covering a screen then we should get Post Corner back on TJB and see if he's really good at covering a Post Corner.

@Bent Well at least its not Scrappy Do, or Gleek, or some other ham-fisted crappy sidekick. At least Robin, uh, hmmm, well never mind.
