Unbelievable what the officials did to that Miller kid!! Do you really think he would hit an official? I would think not!! I saw it all go down!! He never hit no ref!! Just unbelievable! The kid got ejected in the middle of their 3rd game, then same with the 4th in total he played like 3 games and got 13 points? The kid has awesome talent and this is how Winnipeg treats one of their most talented players? I will NOT be letting any of my boys attend any more Manitoba Lightening tournaments or maybe even ANY Winnipeg tournaments for that matter. after seeing all that cheating that went down this weekend. I'm surprised the parents didn't go to the media with that one! Heck I would have. What was it all for? What was accomplished out of it all?

If these are the same caliber of officials that did the Bantam Westerns then I would side with the player. The Refing I've seen in Winnipeg is the worst!!!

How come Miller is no longer playing for team pepsi?? Everyone says that he has discipline issues but I have watched him for 2 years with the AAA Sharks and he is very disciplined???? Is it the coaching that he is getting in the summer or what???

was it team pepsi that kept getting him kicked out of those games? think about that dig carefully...

I'm sure a lot of people are thinking the same thing....

when you two hand a ref you should be suspended for good...get the kid and the parents help. Any player doing that to an official should be banned for life. NO EXCEPTIONS

team Pepsi had nothing to do with it. in one tournament he(Miller)was not on the official roster and therefore was not suppose to be on the ice. He was, he got caught and he was asked to leave. Blame his coach and parents for that one. The second incident of Miller be kicked out was him two handing a Ref with his stick. Please don't lay blame on people or organizations that had nothing to do with it. Summer leagues will continue to have these types of problems as there is no governing body to control or regulate these leagues and tournaments. A word of caution to all players and parents who have their kids participating in these are all(players & parents) being watched by people who will have an influence on where your kid play's or doesn't play hockey.
