He is defensively responsible, an accomplished secondary scorer with a big frame and a low salary. Its close to being the ideal rental package for a team in our situation.
But if we're going for a non-proven rental from a chronically bad team, I'd rather go after someone with more upside (someone we may actually keep beyond this year).
If we're going the rental route, I want a winner. Whitney fits the bill. Maybe Tkachuk. Not someone with so little experience in playing games that matter.
I'd rather have Mueller. And Phoenix may actually want one of our more experienced wingers in return. They want veterans right now.
