Some Mueller stuff:

It's time to break up the ROR line.

Milan Hejduk HAS to play next to Peter Mueller. He just has to. No other player on the team can play everywhere in the offensive zone. Mueller is so good at giving the puck it's a must to find guys that want the puck on their stick, and have a variety of skills with it. Duchene would be more ideal, but oh well.

Also, I may get flamed to **** for this, but he should also be playing center, least in the offensive zone. (somebody else can take the defensive assignment, if needed).

Mueller is far too good playing down the middle to be a winger (that is, unless he's playing with Duchene). Admittedly, he's not going to play behind and around the net the way you'd like a center to, but in my mind the facts that he would have options to both sides and he naturally likes to shoot down the middle make him a good fit. I'd put him with Hejduk and Landeskog, putting ROR with Winnik and whoever else we can find.

OnT: I agree with everything said by the poster above me, except for breaking up ROR and Landy in favour of Winnik.

Once, DUchene comes back they should reunite him with the Duke and Mueller. AS for breaking up Landy and Ror? I don't see the logic in that.

I agree with most of your sentiments... although I'm not sure about him playing center.. maybe only over Galiardi. I get that Sacco was trying to split up the offense on 3 separate lines but I want him to throw Mueller with Stastny and Jones for now. When Dutchy comes back I would put mueller duke and dutch back together but that leaves with O'Reilly or Stas playing as wing (unless we are throwing ROR back to 3rd line duties). Because of this, I want to try a lineup of:

Duchene - Stastny - Landeskog
Mueller - O'Reilly - Hejduk
Galiardi - McClement - Jones
McCleod - Winnik - Kobasew

Hate to throw winnik on the 4th line though

The little puppy is actually my third dog. I have a Boxer/American Staffordshire who is three and another dog who is a SPCA rescue who is also around three (she's a mix breed of some kind. Her body resembles a bully breed and her face looks retrieverish)

The SPCA rescue was abused badly when I got her (she had mange and was very close to starving and was very weary of people.). She's a real sweetheart now and is slowly getting better and better around people, although she is scared of new men (not agressive scared, but more petrified and run away). I assume the one that beat her was a man. I'd like to track the ****** that had her before and kick the **** out of him.

The Boxer is a handful and a half. She is under the impression that she is still a puppy (even through she is three and weighs around 70lbs). She's such a sweet dog. Not an aggressive bone in her body. She's very curious and playful.

The newest addition is far from a manly dog, but I figured I wanted a lap dog. The other two are 50-70 lbs and aren't big cuddlers.

She's a Chihuahua/Pomeranian. She is nine weeks old and currently weighs around a pound to a pound and a half max. I've had her for three days and she's make me smile lots. She has a huge personality for such a little animal.

My dad had a Siberian Husky when I was little. They are gorgeous dogs. I remember though that she was stubborn as hell (which is a breed trait for husky if my memory serves me right ). She was another real sweetheart though and very smart.

I don't know if I've ever gotten an infraction...but I did get into a slight "pissing" match with GKJ back before he was a Global Mod...and it wasn't pretty, we both said some things that in retrospect, I at least regret, perhaps he does to, but I can't speak for him on that...

Mostly why I steer clear of the Main Boards now...it seems like everyone is so sensitive there

Before Duchene gets back:

Porter - Stastny - Hejduk
Landeskog - O'Reilly - Winnik
Mueller - Galiardi - Jones
McCleod - McClement - Kobasew

Porter played pretty well with Stastny on Saturday, so I give him a few more games. Keeping Muellers playing time down on the 3rd line until he gets at least 10 games in. And then, when Duchene gets back, I'd like to see

Duchene - Stastny - Hejduk
Mueller - O'Reilly - Landeskog
Winnik - Galiardi - Jones
Kobasew - McClement - Yip

No Porter and no McCleod once Duchene arrives. Except that won't happen since apparently Sacco is in love with McCleod and Porter

And then, once Duchene gets back into the thick of things - move Mueller onto Duchene's line, either as a Center with Duchene at LW or maybe Duchene with at C with Mueller at LW. This would change based on the situation

Any idea on when we can expect Duchene back?

I hope we don't have a winning streak going because Sacco won't let him play.

I'm sorry you hope the team you cheer for, don't go on a winning streak because X player isn't playing?

Well they said he's out atleast a month, so I'm thinking first week of February.

Imagine a pissed off Duchene after being a healthy scratch for 4 games waiting for us to lose. Maybe he'd be like Angry Foppa? Just getting knocked around a bit more
