Mueller has been surprisingly competent IMO. It's only been two games, but he's been solid, if unspectacular, which is well above my expectation for him.

Being solid on the top pairing is spectacular for Mueller.

Like you said, two games.... but fingers crossed. It’s great to have hope.

My recollection (which is suspect) is that Adam Larson wasn’t very impressive and then finally broke out. Hope that’s the case here.

Canes have 50 shots but are losing 4-3 to a team that has taken 20 shots. Yeah, I don't think their goal tending is bring them to the playoffs.

I agree with the idea of sitting Boyle when Bratt returns to play, but if someone other than Boyle is going to be the 4th line center, it will likely be Coleman. Coleman has been a centerman for most of his career and he is very good on faceoffs. Late in the game versus the Caps, Hynes switched Boyle to LW and Coleman to C.

QUESTION

Assuming Nico and Hall off the table, does Shero go after Nylander ?

I wonder if we are being too optimistic with Bratt. He started off fine last year, but faded rather dramatically. Giving him second line right off the bat seems generous. Let him earn that. Don't fix what ain't broken....

Yeah but we don't realistically want Noesan playing a full season as our second line RW. Putting him back with Zajac on the third line or Coleman on the 4th is better in the long haul if Bratt can hold his own.

I'm no coach but I can't help but wonder if that back pass on the power play is ineffective. It's so telegraphed

I've been wondering that as well. It's become so predictable

I know it's a stretch but I would love to see Nylander in a Devils sweater. He would be a pretty big offensive addition.

Never going to happen. Leafs want quality not quantity, and we don't even have quantity of assets.

Can't the Devils offer sheet him instead of trying to trade for him?
