Miller signed an entry-level deal with the Rangers yesterday.

He said that he is excited to get to Plymouth and described himself as ?a big forward who likes to use my speed to my advantage. I try to get pucks to the net and be in front of the net as much as possible.?

At Hockey Buzz, Julie Robenhymer writes that choosing the OHL over the North Dakota and the NCAA's may not be the best thing for JT Miller's development.

She calls Miller a "heck of a player" and says that the OHL may not be challenging enough for him.

Robenhymer cites North Dakota's program and pedigree for breeding NHL players as things that could have benefited Miller.

?One year, that?s been a goal for me for a while now,? Miller said. ?That would be outstanding.?

Gare Joyce wrote that Miller may be ready after one year at North Dakota.

Miller is the kind of player who can grow and play his game in the bottom six when he is ready to turn pro. In time he will be a second line player that will be a key for the Rangers on both ends of the ice, but he can develop by playing in checking roles.

More on Miller throughout the morning.
