He may not be as good of a stickhandler as Wolski, but I like what Mueller does better, as opposed to Wolski who uses a complicated array of dekes and he only even does that once every ten tries. Maybe Wolski was once great in shootouts, but he didn't really impress me while he was here.
The reason why I responded to your post was that I wanted to defend Wolski. I think he wasn't appreciated here at all (after the first couple weeks), and I think he meant more to the team during the spring than many others. But I'll let go now. Let him rot with the Caps.

It didn't show in my post that I was actually happy to discover that Muller is as good as he has been in SO. He was 2/3 last year... We definitely need that from him, and I'm much happier with the signing after learning this.
