He's the guy I wish Ottawa would have signed rather than Guillaume Latendresse.

IMO Mueller still has a good amount of upside, even with his injury concerns. When he was scoring at a point-per-game pace in Colorado after he was traded from Phoenix, I thought he was going to be a first line winger in this league for a long time. I hope he can regain somewhere close to that form this coming season.

Pittsburgh and NYI are options that come to mind. Phoenix might want to take another stab at him too.

Dont know why people keep saying Mueller back to Pheonix. He left there on bad terms.


Anyways I wish Peter the very best. He seems like a really nice guy and I hope he becomes the player I know he can.

I grew up playing against Peter Mueller, so I've been following rather closely since he made it into the NHL. He was an amazing rookie player with 22 goals and 32 assists. His numbers dipped the next year (in fewer games) to 13 goals and 23 assists. Since then, he's been dealing with concussion issues and has been limited to only 101 games played in the last 3 seasons for 20 goals and 33 assists.

I think Mueller is a fantastic player when he is healthy. I'm not sure how he has been feeling over the summer, but I'd still give Mueller a shot on a 1- or 2-year deal for $2M per.

Hartnell - Giroux - Voracek
Schenn - Briere - Simmonds
Read - Couturier - Mueller
Wellwood - Holmstrom - Talbot

Wellwood - Talbot - Rinaldo

Anyone who signs him will regret it within six months. This player is complete garbage.

I'd be happy to see him on the Canes. It might not work out, but he out to be able to find some team willing to take the risk and put him on a 2nd line wing. And if it doesn't, 2 mil isn't that much.

Bitter nothing. I'm glad he's gone. Honestly, I'm grateful we ended up getting a useful players out of that piece of garbage. Do you honestly think he's ever going to be an effective NHL player and have a valuable NHL career. I promise you he won't.

Let's gamble. I'm ready to out some dollar value on this.

that would be gambling on his health, not his ability/work ethic, if he's healthy he'll be an effective player

if it weren't for blake's cheap shot, he'd probably still be an av

Hahaha you're calling him a "piece of garbage", yet claim not to be bitter.

Wolski was useful?

Kevin freakin Porter outscored him the year after the trade.

Nope. Garbage either way. Get specific on the parameters of the wager. We can allow for injury. I'm telling you he's a worthless piece of **** that will always suck because he's a nutless wonder. Let's work on quantifying that. If we can find a reasonable way to do so, I'm ready to get some money on this.

Nope, this man is not bitter at all. Nope. Completely unbiased.

We get it. Mueller wanted out of Pheonix. Him and Tippett didnt see eye to eye and he was shipped out. Is that a reason to hold such a grudge on this guy? Jeez its like he pissed on your toothbrush or something.

No, I meant Roszival. The guy who helped us into the final four this summer.

I'm calling Mueller garbage because he's a crap hockey player. That's the only reason why. I've watched nearly all of his nhl games and i know its true.

Take a look at my original post. I will stand right by that post. Do you even disagree with it? Or are you just offended by the harsh tone?

Tell me what you expect from his NHL career. We will see who is correct.

Edit: way to ninja edit. The personal bit was totally necessary. Good thing you decided to add it. Anyway, now that I know I'm dealing with a child, I'll leave it alone. Have a good adolescence, kid.

He may be a child (though I doubt it), but you're sure as hell acting like a petulant 5 year old.

Struggled, and was slower then normal. He was never incredible fast to begin with. Seems like a nice guy but a bit lazy on ice even at his best.

Its hard to say now, because of his concussion. Prior to that I would have said a 25-30 goal and 30 assist guy in his prime. A 55-60 point winger who can man the point on the PP.

I do disagree with your first post. He was/is not "complete garbage". He has tremendous offensive instincts. He's a good passer and has a nice arsenal of shots to choose from. He's got a nice wrister that can fool goalies (usually five hole) and a booming slap shot from the point on the PP.

He's not without faults certainly. His defensive play is below average and he is not a physical player at all. His skating is average to below average as well. But to discount his talent is silly.

Panthers took a short term risk on Wolski last season...like to see 2 year offer thrown Mueller's way at a moderate price to play 2C with likes of Huberdeau,Upshall/Bergie.

You'd think a "man" such as yourself would have a thicker skin.

But what do I know Im just a child.

There's absolutely no reason not to (assuming they have the cap space to take a gamble). He's going to be a cheap high risk high reward type of player. Cost is maybe 2-2.5m max. If it works out, great - and he's still a RFA. If it doesn't work, waive him or bury him in the minors, or put him on LTIR if he's injured. There's only upside to giving him a shot in your top 6.

I'm honestly surprised someone hasn't offered him a contract yet. Would love for the Pens to give him a shot along side Sid.

Same goes for Wolski - another player with some talent. Give him a shot... worse case is it doesn't work... But the cost isn't that high that it really means much if it doesn't work...

Speaking of Kevin Porter, he's flying into Buffalo this morning to meet with the Sabres/Amerks management team.
Porter as a depth center in Rochester, I'm figuring.

Mueller would be what Buffalo needs, a scoring winger. But the injury issue (specifically the head injury) would have to be looked at as a risk on Buffalo's part. Although, I've seen nor heard anything about Mueller and Buffalo.

Mueller is a winger, not a center.

woops, may mistake, had Porter's bio up. I'll edit, and yes, Buffalo is looking for a scoring winger, would Mueller be an option? Don't know.
