Adam Rotter: It’s pretty simple with Miller. If he is a healthy scratch for one, maybe two more games, he will be sent down and someone else will be called up to be the 13th forward. Miller has been better each time he has been called up but the rest of the Rangers forwards are healthy right now and he doesn’t have a defined spot. Miller needs to play to keep developing and there is nothing wrong with him going to Hartford and playing big minutes in all situations. That may be what it comes down to and Miller will get another call up when needed.
