It's bad enough that the Vancouver Canucks started their season, 0-3-2 but the lack of effort from one of their top players is even more concerning

J.T. Miller recently held out for a new contract during the off-season and was signed to a 7-year, $56 million dollar contract by Patrik Allvin and the Canucks.
Since the beginning of the season, the Canucks have been down and out and Miller hasn't been the one to step up to the task of leading the team.
Despite, the fact that last year he put up 99 points for the Canucks overall, the passion and production are lacking so far this season.
The lack of effort to even stop Kirill Kaprizov is just blatant, playing away from the puck.
How will Bruce Boudreau handle this lack of two-way play?
Well, he scratched Nils Hoglander and Connor Garland to start, which was questioned by fans.
«We've got 13 forwards This is a bigger, physical team and sometimes you make decisions on that,» Boudreau told reporters in Saint Paul. «I told Hoggy he's playing pretty good. I really like the way he's playing, and be ready to get back in a hurry. Sometimes you look at your opposition and you see what you need.»

It really doesn't help when the front-office agrees with the current delusion that Miller isn't held accountable for his share of the Canucks struggles
«I think he over-tries,» Rutherford said. «I think he tries to do too much sometimes. That's the kind of player he is; it's what drives him. He wants to win, he wants to do well. And when things aren't going right with the team, some players have that tendency to try to do too much.»

Did Jim Benning ever leave?
