Last season Alain Vigneault was asked about possibly being harder on JT Miller than on other players and said that when he was in Vancouver he was harder on the Sedin twins than he was on anyone else.
Vigneault said, "when you see guys that have potential you want to help them deliver that potential. There is a lot of potential there and trying to work with him, and he's trying to work with me and the coaches to try and become the best player that he can be."
Henrik Sedin said in 2013, right before Vigneault was fired by the Canucks, "I think our core players have really grown up here and have become better as the years went on. AV has helped us grow as players and, I think, as leaders as well. So I have nothing but good things to say. He's had our attention from Day One until the last game. That's never been a problem. He's been nothing but good to us."
Adam Rotter: Miller has gotten better in each season he has been with the Rangers, so something that Alain Vigneault is doing is working when it comes to Miller. Vigneault is right to demand a lot of Miller because he has an immense amount of talent, speed and an ability to be physical that should have him cemented into the top-six. A lot of Miller's issues tend to be self-inflicted in regards to turnovers, puck decisions or trying to force plays that aren't there. Hopefully this season will be another step for Miller and he can both cut down on the turnovers and be more consistent offensively.
