Rangers send down J.T. Miller

The one thing Daniel Carcillo‘s arrival in New York has done is cut into J.T. Miller’s playing time. With that being the case, the Rangers have sent Miller to their AHL affiliate in Hartford.

Miller was a healthy scratch in the past two games against Chicago and Dallas, both 3-2 Rangers wins. He has played in 25 games this season and has two goals and two assists. He had that exact same output last season in 26 games.

At 20 years old, keeping Miller with the big club and not playing games isn’t optimal, so a trip back to the AHL will help him out there.

    Poor kid must feel like a friggin yo yo right now. He was good this time around but with Boyle and D. Moore playing better there was nobody to point to and say that he should take their place. Someone else will get injured soon enough, unfortunately, and he’ll be back.

    The kid has been playing well of late. He was strong on the puck and showed good poise. AV has made a decision to go with Carcillo on the fourth line. JT is more of a third liner so I can’t kill him on this move. He is a young player with huge upside.

    Need a player like Carcillo on the fourth line and JTs game is not designed for the fourth line. Can’t blame AV with this decision. Kid has a big future with the Blue Shirts
