I had a chance to see Muzz play twice this past season and he is clearly head and shoulders above his competition. That said, he looks like he will be a solid starter in the AHL next season and I wouldn't be shocked to see him get a cup of tea with the big club next season. I would say that if you watched all of the good qualities that Azevedo has (and he does have them, they just don't shine at the NHL level...yet) and then gave some of Greene's stay at home thrown in you would have yourself a Muzzin.
Say a more mobile poor mans Greene. I would guess that he could become a solid #4-6 dman with a good first step and his head on a swivel.
A physical Brad Stuart..... Yep I can see that with the exception that BS seems lost at times on the ice while Muzzin seems to look like he always knows exactly where he is going. I am certain that isn't the case but he plays with that kind of confidence. I want to see what he does in the AHL next season but, I stand by my prediction. The Hounds will be a sorry team without him.
Honestly him and Schenn both. But the playoffs were a must and Lombardi couldn't take the chance. They'll be Kings next year.
I agree. I wouldnt be surprised to see Simmonds stay on Kopitar's wing and then have Clifford play with Handzus and Richardson. Inserting Schenn and Clifford into the lineup significantly increases the toughness of the team
