He seems to make good plays and handle the puck pretty well, I don't know why so many of you are expecting him not to make the team, if he is healthy and saying he is healed, he is young enough to restart his career, especially with the Panthers, Mueller is trying to do it, and all of you were happy about that... right?

you're comparing apples and oranges.

Mueller is 24, and showed incredible promise recently, only to be derailed by serious concussion issues. He legitimately has tons of upside yet.

Svatos is 30...and his game was in a steady decline even before his serious injury.

they're not comparable situations

i'm not saying he "can't" regain form, just that it's a longshot, whereas if Mueller can stay healthy, i'd almost expect him to regain his form of a few years ago.

we lose nothing in bringing him in here, more competition. if he earns a role on the team, awesome.
