He isn't that bad. Actually has a good shot. Just a tweener who doesn't have enough offensive skill to play a top 6 or enough defensive or physical skill to play a bottom 6. Still, should be worth a mid round pick for a team looking for cheap depth.

I do believe Mitchell is on the block. For the second straight game, Roy has put Brad Malone (whose had a great camp) between McLeod and Bordeleau on the usual 4th line and Malone has scored in both games and looked good doing it. He's also a more natural fit to play their grinding game.

It wouldn't surprise me to see Mitchell traded.

20 points in 47 games last season, better than most people give him credit for. Not a bad player if he doesn't have the puck on his stick. Better shot than I thought.

I love Johnny Malkin, very under-appreciated player.

Mitchell for Pyatt + pick?

What do you blokes think Avs could get for Mitchell?

A bottom 3 defenseman?
A draft pick?
Or something in a package for an upgrade?

Depends on who you talk to, but IMO Mitchell isn't that useless of a player and is a solid a bottom 2 line centre.
wtf?
Is not him a soccer player?

Didn't hate Mitchell but he's surely a guy who should know his place/role in an organization. Anything above the 4th line is too much.

He was pretty good last year, he has no hockey sense, but he has slick hands and decent shot. Problem is he's not good enough for top-6, but doesn't have skills to be in bottom-6 either, so he's kinda in the middle. He would be great player in KHL/Switzerland whatever.

Mitchell sucks and has no business demanding anything. He should be grateful for a job. He had this attitude in Toronto too where he thought he was much better than he actually was.

Seems like the perfect 4th line center that would now be 3rd line in Edmonton.

I guess we'll see what Acton and Eakins have to say about him. Have to think if the price is cheap and we don't acquire him that the two coaches don't have favorable reviews on him.

Well to be fair, Mitchell is more skilled than many NHL players, but he can't pass for ****. He has no hockey sense for defensive game or passing to other players. Otherwise he would be very good player.

Like many others I can see Edmonton being all over him, they need some extra center depth at the moment.

Johnny Malkin calling the shots! Love it.

Seriously though, how was he in NY? Couldn't stand him in T.O.

He has the skill to be a 3rd line centre just not the hockey sense

He's got a great shot. Hard and he can pick a corner. He does seem to mostly get it off after carrying the puck for a while, diminishing its usefulness.

SEPH (The OP) is a huge Arsenal fan, I'm sure he knows the difference between Clichy and Cliche. He was just making a joke.
