Peter Mueller is the straw that stirs the drink. I know most of you (and myself) forget that he is on the avalanche. And Assuming that he puts on his damn helmet correctly, think about what this guy brings to the team, if you take the 15 games that he played for the avalanche and extrapolate it across a whole season it's 49 goals and 110 points. That's a lot to miss. He made players around him better to a certain extent (Duchene is tallented but really hit his stride playing with Mueller). Hedjuk isn't missing him this season but you can make an arguement that Matty D is. Hopefully he can come back this year and give the avs two legitmate #1 lines and possibly the best third line and maybe the best 4th line in the league (Yip or Galaradi would be on it). Sure the Defense still would have holes named Kyle on it but those 4 lines of fowards would be awesome.
