detroit has a lot of space...if they strike out on the big boys i can see them easily nabbing Mueller without it hurting them in any way. actually help them. aren't they below the floor right now? Pretty much no risk involved for them since he helps them by being a money sink if nothing else.

The problem is, how long is Mueller going to last on the market? Is he going to be a plan B for teams, or is he going to sign on the first day?

i see your point. for teams who aren't entertaining the idea of getting a parise or suter Mueller might be just swooped down on. I think Detroit has enough space to snag him and still pay Parise and Suter market value, though. Not sure if Mueller has expressed any preferences so I'll just assume he's going to want the best total $ amount by default, and tie goes to the high profile team.

I think he can be considered a desired commodity by many teams, not just those trying to sign him for the purpose of raising their cap. Thats why I think the Wild should make a play for him on the 1st. Offer 2 years/3 Mill, and he gets to come home to Minny. A deal that could potentially work out very well for both sides, but it is still a high risk situation (I am not doubting that). If he wants to pass on an offer like that to play elsewhere for more money, let him go.

It'd have to be so incredibly cheap. Injury history galore. Would rather have Lats.

And his concussion history is sick. We're already trying to get one serious concussed player (Butch) off the books. As if we need two major concussed players in the top 6 that could very easily spend a lot of time out. Refer to last season.

Mueller would be a 1yr deal, 1M or something cheap... Butch is unmoveable due to his injuries and cap hit.

Seeing how Mueller finished last season with 26 healthy games, it's pretty clear he's recovered.

But look at his history that Jarick included in post #8. He may recover, but he eventually finds himself right back in the same spot.

He has had two concussions in his career.

Too risky considering the length of time it took him to heal. It's the same way I feel about Butch. Not good. If they have to sign him, it better be Plan D, E, or F.

Mueller is a better player (historically) than Latendresse and has actually proved he's recovered by playing the game since his last IR trip. Lats says he feels good. Got doctors to clear him. Didn't bouchard go through that too? only to have symptoms reappear. Not talking about the last head bonk.

So Squidz has convinced me Mueller is actually worth more at the moment than Latendresse would be.

The length of time it took to heal is irrelevant. The only question is whether or not it is healed completely. He had a third of an NHL season to prove he was healthy, and he did.

Fair enough. But it'd still have to be a fairly cheap/short-term contract.

I'll take Lats back before I sign Mueller. No thank you.

Mueller would (if still available after Parise has decided) be a plan B for that scenario in my mind. I'd never dream of offering him more than 1-2 years (preferably 1, but it'll probably take 2 to get him) and it would need to be for less than Lats' QO would have been.

If Mueller is our backup plan it feels more like Plan 9 From Outer Space.

I guess I'm not opposed to getting him but I'm just not sure that I could see it happening. I guess you could just combine him and Bouchard as one roster spot, you know darn well at least one of them will be injured for a while.

I like how some fans on here are "okay" with giving Lats a pass at his injuries even though one was because he was TOO FAT and out of shape. But we can't fault him for the Concussion, but when it comes to Mueller his two concussions are poison and he's frailer than a hemophiliac baby. We can totally fault Mueller for those concussions though cause he's injury prone.

I see where your coming and have to agree, concussions fall under a different category. I don't quality a player with a history of concussions as injury prone.. Anyone can have a concussion fairly easily.
