Main board put together an interesting idea...Peter Mueller.
Guy has plenty of lingering injury issues, and his conditioning was apparently quite brutal last year...but he sounds like a real potential reclamation project. He's always had plenty of talent and was really on his way up before his concussion after being given an expanded role in Colorado.
If we did make a play for one of the bigger fish in the trade market this off-season and it wore down some of our depth at forward (ie. think trading for Luongo and having to give up Mac or Kulemin etc.) I wouldn't mind giving the Mueller a try. I don't expect much more than a 1-year, $1MM contract...which is really a very low risk proposition.
At worst you get a few games out of him at the beginning of the season until he's hurt or not performing (at which point you bring the kids in). At best, you get a guy with a new lease on life that has always had awesome upside.
Would be interested in some thoughts around here...
