Peter Mueller


PITs gains a cheaper version of Jordan Staal with less offensive upside in Hanzal. Staal is 4mil per year and for a team with huge centre depth that forces him to be a 3rd liner, that's a lot of money. Hanzal could fill that roll nicer and cheaper. Mueller (while the 'yotes have patience with him) could solve the winger problem on a team like PITs, playing with Crosby or Malkin could give him the confidence he needs to break out.

PHX gains a defensively responsible centre with good offensive upside that has been underused in PIT. He could easily slot into any line in the top 9 and play effectively. With Robert Lang being 39, his retirement must be imminent.

I still think PITs would have to add something else to this deal though to make it perfectly even.

Let me know what you think.
Throw in Orpik and a 2nd. That would make the deal more attractive....and fair.

Everything in this thread is bang on, except the above statement. Hanzal is very good defensively, and pretty much the same type of player as Jordan, but Staal is playing at a Selke level this season.

Either you need to watch a lot more Coyotes games or we'll have to simply to disagree. Not downplaying Staal's defensive play by any means, but I stick by my statement.

Fair enough, agree to disagree.

Hanzal and Mueller are not getting traded. Period.
