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...
I think we all kicked this idea around a bit here. Problem is he's a 2nd line winger and we already have a glut of them. I'd love to see a team take a chance on him and I'd even love that to be us - huge upside and no risk involved. But we can't spare the roster space for him right now.
