Mueller is soft and I haven't seen him really dig deep into the dirty areas like Duchene does, but he has the speed and puck handling skills to stay up with Duchene and Hejduk. Mueller also makes very quick decisions with the puck and knows where the puck needs to be for a quality scoring chance. I think it'll be a good combination to have a Mueller-Duchene-Hejduk line going forward.

I think Mueller needs to hustle backchecking a little more, though. He's usually pretty far behind the play when coming back into the zone. This can be taught, of course. But it seems that our system suits his playing style very well, and he could definitely flourish with us. We'll see how he goes the rest of the season!
