Chris Peters at the United States of Hockey does a final wrap-up of last week's Team USA Junior Evaluation camp and called Rangers 2011 first round pick J.T. Miller a top performer...

"The lone forward in camp with World Junior experience looked every bit the veteran in camp. Miller showed flashes of his play-making ability that helped make him the 15th overall selection by the Rangers in 2011. He has terrific speed, immense physical strength and displayed a maturity in his game that I had not seen in the past. Miller can score, but he showed terrific vision and patience. One thing I really like about Miller is that he can play at a high level at varying paces, but seemed to excel in slowing things down in the offensive zone in order to make the right play and allow things to set up a bit. As long as he's healthy, he's top-six on this club."

...wow. If that analysis doesn't have you salivating to see Miller in training camp, I don't know what will.

...very encouraged to hear Peters talk about Miller's impressive strength, which could be an issue playing against men at the NHL level.

Peters also projects Steven Fogarty (2011 - 3rd) to make the final roster at the fourth line center position...

"Steven Fogarty got the nod for No. 4 for now due to his size and the flashes he showed in camp. He wasn't always consistent, but you could see glimpses of a strong two-way game. Biggest question is can he do it at the college level? That's what we don't know yet."

...big time camp for Fogarty who seemed to make a name for himself within USA hockey. Really hoping he makes the final roster as it can only help with his development.

Finally, Peters also feels Brady Sjei (2012 - 1st) will make the roster on the third defensive pair.
