Read: The Rest Of The Season For JT Miller

JT MillerIn the NY Post, Larry Brooks writes that the plan is for the Rangers to keep JT Miller with the Whale even though training camp is expected to open in the next 7-10 days.

Brooks writes that if Miller continues to progress then the team won’t hesitate to call him up and inject him into the lineup.

He also notes that with the crunch of the schedule it is more likely that teams may replace struggling veterans with players from the AHL.

Bob McKenzie says that Miller is a player the Rangers are considering


Adam Rotter: Miller can play center and wing and is coming off a Gold Medal winning performance for Team USA. Miller is a guy who can play in the bottom six and focus on defense as he develops as a player. Since he was drafted he has drawn comparisons, in terms of style of play, to Ryan Kesler and Mike Richards and that is how both of those players started their careers.

I know you're being sarcastic, but must admit that's the kind of thing I really dig.

What are the chances Ryan Fitzpatrick is on the field in the 4th quarter of the Snoopy Bowl with the third string O'line???

@a57se @tsjc68 It's an open competition with Brick. Brick will get 99% of the snaps.

You know, you have the option to be neither excited nor sarcastic.  You can just accept this as a nice move that doesn't change much but also has little downside and might end up helping but probably won't hurt.

I'm not sure that Hillard would be in competition with Brick, though.  Neither James Brewer nor Corey Hilliard have played LT in ages.  They're both probably battling each other and Brent Qvale for the backup RT job behind Giacomini.

Still four months before training camp opens.  We'll probably add another reserve LT at some point, either in the draft or in the third wave of FA.

Oh yeah, I'm sure a guy who has started 12 out of 128 possible regular season games since he came into the league is going to beat out breno especially coming off a Lisfranc injury.

Brilliant post Hank!

Zero...but then Sanchez wasn't on the field with the third string OL either.

Tyson Chandler is also an RT.


Played LT for a few games as a sophomore, didn't pan out well, moved to the other side and remained there for the rest of his career.

This Charlatan should stay far away from mentioning the Military in Every way shape or form and tell him that "SERIAL" numbers are given to OBJECTS  and SERVICE numbers are given to SOLDIERS !!!

Is the schedule set ?

Because even if Geno wins the job I can tell the week he loses it ... I'll give him 2 weeks give or take a week based on the schedule .

@Marvel so now you think Geno can "win" the job? Wow. You are coming around

Not for a couple weeks...mid-April the schedule should be out.

We do know we go to London for week 4 and have a bye week 5...

If Fitz doesn't heal, and we don't draft someone, its a possibility. And it makes me sick.

Great, now Geno is going to have to figure out another timezone. Hopefully his handlers will take care of him.

@BDarc

Like Sanchez, Geno.....and many others can practice with the best of them... Not losing the job in camp is not an endorsement .
