Rangers select J.T. Miller

With the 15th overall pick in the 2011 NHL Entry Draft, the New York Rangers have picked forward J.T. Miller out of the U.S. National Development program. The fact that the Rangers went forward with their first pick is not a surprise given the depth of their defense corps. The fact that they selected Miler is somewhat of a surprise given that Joel Armia and Mark McNeill were still on the board. That said, Gordie, Clark had earned the trust of Rangers fans so they should withhold any negative thoughts.

Miler has good size at 6-foot-1, 198 pounds. He is scheduled to attend North Dakota next season, but he could go to the Ontario Hockey League where the Plymouth Whalers own his rights.
