We already knew Chris Mueller wasn’t going to be playing with the Admirals this season.
Today we found out where he will be playing.
Mueller today signed a contract with the Dallas Stars.
According to our friends at the 100 Degree Hockey blog, it’s a two-way, one-year deal.
And as the Defending Big D blog observes, they aren’t short on centers in Dallas.
Last week, (GM) Nill added centers Tyler Seguin, Rich Peverley, and Shawn Horcoff to the club. Because of those prior moves that have created a logjam of sorts at the center position (and the fact that Mueller split time between Nashville and Milwaukee), this appears to be a depth move to help restock the farm system and nothing more.
So I’d say there’s a decent chance we’ll get to see Mueller in an opposing uniform this year. And it’ll be weird.
So Roundtable…over the years, which former Admiral has been the most awkward to see in an enemy uniform? And when Mueller makes his first BC appearance as a member of the Texas Stars, will you cheer or boo?
