Anybody know what he's asking for? I wouldn't mind Hawks signing him to be 2C even though you have to pause at his injury history.

Colorado neglected to qualify him at, what, 2 million? I'd imagine he comes in somewhere in that neighborhood, and I think a lot of teams might see him as a high-risk, high-reward.

On the other hand, I was under the impression that he was not as effective at center--and had basically been moved full-time to wing.

Yes and yes, from a CO fan. Not a center. Can play either wing.

He's not a Center anymore, and never will play it again. Also a very worrying player, one more bad hit and he could be done. Sucks cause he had all the talent in the world, but Concussions have ruined a potentially great career.

But yea, he's not a Center and never will be.

was against it as I think this is a type of talent that needs important minutes to be truly effective.

I would hate to invest the time and effort needed for him to gain chemsitry with our top 6 players only to see him get hurt again.

If the Rangers did sign him, I'd want no more than a 2 year deal at 1.75 per.

is he eligable for performance bonuses? or did he play enough games to negate that in this contract?

I think the Pens should give him a shot, we lost Steve Sullivan (to Phoenix, where I thought Mueller would go).

Completely agree. Can't hurt to sign him for 1-1.5 million on a one year deal. Especially with all this cap space.

I wouldnt mind seeing my Jets take him on..they could use him somewhere in the top 9
they have the cap space and could use a player with his playmaking abilities.
If he craps out due to a bad hit, oh wellz...

I'd love to see the Jets take a crack at him for one of our RW spots.

I wonder what the holdup to signing him has been. Teams looking up his health records or something?

Would love the Canucks to offer him 2 yrs @ $1.75 to play with Kes and Booth.

This. But that's only if we fail to sign Doan, and also fail to acquire a top 6 winger in the Luongo deal.

Would love for Anaheim to take a flyer on him, gives Ryan a legitimate offensive threat to play with.

Doubt we would be interested though unless its later in free agency and no one has picked him up yet, which wont be the case.

will probably be a pickup late for someone looking for a winger after other options are off the table


I hate Rob Blake

How was he when he came back this past season? Also, is he a hard working guy and is he good in the locker room?

seems like every fan would want to take a chance with him playing in the top 6 / 9.

if a team has enough cap space , sure they can take a chance on him , but my bet is that he still have some serious concussions problems.

skill was still there, and he put up a decent amount of points, but his endurance was definitely lacking (for obvious reasons).

If he's happy where he is he's fine in the locker room and avs fan never had any issues with his work ethic, though I'm pretty sure yotes fans completely disagree with that.

Wouldn't mind him on a cheap 1 year deal in Washington. But there are other targets I'd definitely prefer.

I agree. Would love to see him sign with the Pens. I really like Mueller and would love to see him rebound after all his concussion and injury issues. I think Pittsburgh would be the perfect place for him. A one year deal worth around $1-2 million would be fair in my opinion.
