Read: The path that JT Miller could be following

JT MillerOver the past few years the Rangers have set a precedent of players spending time in the AHL before making it full time with the Rangers. (

Both Mats Zuccarello and Chris Kreider spent varying amounts of time in Hartford before finally establishing themselves as NHL regulars.

Kreider’s is the path that Tal Pinchevsky thinks Miller can follow based on their histories as first round picks who spent a year going up and down to Hartford. (

If the Rangers can get Miller to contribute they may be able to recapture the offensive depth that the team had last season. (

Miller won a spot out of Rangers training camp last year before being sent down.

Adam Rotter: With Miller it doesn’t necessarily matters where he starts the year but where he finishes. Most everyone was disappointed in Chris Kreider starting the year in Hartford but that all went away when he came up and played a big role for the Rangers. He and Kreider had opposite training camps last year but Kreider was the one who made a big impact for the Rangers. It would be great for him to win a spot out of camp and spend the year with the Rangers but if he has to start in Hartford, and if he takes the right approach down there, he won’t be there for long and will become a key member of the Rangers.
