It's a lateral move that adds salary to the club. I don't do it unless it's for a prospect. This team is thin enough as it is up front and Higgins has more snarl than Mueller does.
He is 21 years old, most prospects you are going to get are going to be about that age. He is 6'2 205lbs. Just like any prospect he has some work to do but his ceiling is as high, or higher than anyone else you are going to get your hands on. This isnt a 25y/o center, the kid still has some learning and growing to do.
