March 2013 – The Rangers seem to be pushing the issue with Miller, thrusting him into a top nine role in the NHL almost right away. His offensive production has been very poor to this point, but he is not hurting the team on the ice and is showing confidence in shooting the puck regularly. Might have been better served with more AHL seasoning and may get thrown back there at the deadline if the Rangers decide to spend on another forward option to get them into the playoffs. Miller himself has good upside and could turn into a reliable option within a couple seasons, but not fully sold on him being a full-time NHLer yet. Jason Banks
December 2012 - Miller was named to the final roster for the WJC and will be an important player on and off the ice for Team USA. Rich Dillon
December 2012 - JT Miller was one of the 27 American players named to the USA preliminary roster for the upcoming 2013 World Junior Championships. Miller will be counted on for his experience and leadership for Team USA and is essentially a lock to make the team. Through eight games, Miller has tallied one assist for the AHL's Conneticut Whale.

February, 2012 – JT Miller is a player that derives his offensive game through his overall physical strength, skating ability and intense work ethic. The former University of North Dakota commit had a change in plans and joined the OHL’s Plymouth Whalers for the 2011-12 season. Miller is a player who has a powerful stride that he uses to close gaps and attack in close quarters. A strong quick stick and keen defensive awareness makes JT Miller a valuable player offensively and defensively. He does not possess much offensive creativity but his hockey intelligence is sufficient enough to become a potential top two pivot. The physical pivot does have an above-average shot with good accuracy.
Lacking a true offensive mind JT Miller’s upside is limited but he certainly has the tools to become a player similar to David Bolland.
