I'd like Mitchell, i do have concerns.

1) Is he healthy (head) and the rest of him - feels risky to me that he's one hit away from retirement from the NHL.

2) He's starting to pass his prime perhaps, he's older and i'm not sure about his foot speed.

All that stated, he could be a cheap short term fix we get him for under 3m. I'd take him only if younger players with longer contracts are not available (e.g.Stall, etc.) He'd be a decent Blake replacement, if he's physically ok maybe about the same to a hair better defensively. He's not an upgrade which i think we need at this position - this is a concern given our recent goal tending decision.
