Makar is a force but no single (or 2) players can carry an entire NHL franchise to the cup. This isn't the NBA.Let's see what we get for JT Miller now... he's gonna fetch us something good for 2 years from now which I think is the start of the window of the core.
Or we offload all of the core for Makar.
The Devils want to move the #2 for an established forward... don't overthink things, that pick even up for one more year of Miller is a no-brainer for the Canucks - assuming they can keep Francesco muzzled long enough to click send on the trade fax...Would have rather kept Miller but clearly this signals that they picked Boeser instead.
Fair enough from a business standpoint - Miller had one massive contract left and it was going to be diminishing returns on the back end.
Rumour is the market for Miller is strong at the moment. Hopefully we get a king's ransom.
