Fiddler scored more points than he did last year. I don't know much about him, but prove to me that wasn't an anomaly or I'm not interested.
Then if Stajan doesn't put up points, that just makes us that much closer to a lottery pick. I don't see a problem here, either he works out and puts up points, or he doesn't and helps us get a lottery pick. It's win-win.

Don't think Mueller really played center at all last year. Of course he had ROR, stastny, and duchene to contend with too. I remember one of his biggest knocks besides laziness was his lacking foot speed, so maybe center isn't the best place for him anyway.
For some reason I'd rather not have a defense where our toughest player is 5'11" and 35 years old.
Pretty sure both Dillon (who I would assume replaces Fistric) and Daley are tougher than Robidas. I get your point but feel Fistric isn't long for this club so assuming he brings back something you want (though I imagine it'd be someone younger than Stajan) they'd be more than willing to trade him.
