Life Without Mueller

I’m not going to lie.  It’s going to be weird this weekend looking out on the Bradley Center ice…and not seeing #18 Chris Mueller.

A constant in Milwaukee over the last three and a half years, Mueller is now in Nashville for training camp.

Mueller was recently named one of the top 35 Admirals of all time, and rightly so I think.

Do you think we’ll ever see him in these parts ever again?

  1. If I had a vote, I would have ranked Mueller higher on the Admirals all time chart. Though I don’t know for sure, I would be willing to bet other teams would be interested in him if he ever became available. Plus, considering the shortened year, even if Bourque comes back healthy and takes his spot, Nashville will need an insurance option readily available. If Mueller does comes back, it might only be in short doses, perhaps like Lindback in past years.

    One of the best two-way Admirals of all-time. Though Mueller is a talented scorer, he has the game to adapt to a third or fourth line role in the NHL. I saw Mueller play for the Predators at Anaheim in person and he did not look out of place at all. I hope Mueller gets a real shot, no one deserves it more.

  2. i agree with Jason, Mueller belongs in the NHL he is probably one of the most unselfish players to wear an admiralls jersey. Good luck Chris hate to see you go but you deserve this

  3. It’s no secret Mueller is my favorite Admiral. I would, selfishly, love to see him come back here. But I think it’s naive to think he’ll be back. The Preds are carrying 12 forwards not including Chris and Bourque. With Bourque you have 13. NHL teams always carry one or two extra to account for injuries and wear and tear. Plus, one of their forwards is a fighter. In a season when all games are important-are they really going to want to dress him every night? I totally agree with Jason-this year is especially different. The amount of games these guys are going to be playing in a week is doubled, if not tripled. They are going to need to rotate guys in and out of the lineup. He’s up there for good. And good for him-he sure has earned it. I just hope he makes an impact and stays with the organization long-term. Good luck Chris-we’ll be rooting for you here in Milwaukee.
