I completely forgot about that - he came over in the Versteeg trade - remember all the hullabaloo about him not signing with the Leafs, and what a fantastic prospect he was...

I just looked him up, he has 3 games in the NHL and now plays in Sweden.

Looked up an article on that, this was in it:

"In light of the signing of Marcel Mueller, we are withdrawing all offers to Bill Sweatt," Burke said in an e-mail to the Sun on Friday.

Mueller is the rugged, 6-foot-3, 220-pound winger from the German Olympic team to whom the Leafs awarded a two-year, entry-level contract on Wednesday.

Burke thinks some day the 22-year-old could be a top-six forward with the team and he didn't cost the club a single body or prospect.


Burke said some funny things.

Hey say what you want about Mueller, he's good enough to play and put up over a PPG for the Penguins*.

When you think about the guys that actually make it and then excel at the game is a crapshoot.
When you look at guys like Zettenburg and others drafted in later rounds that actually make more of an impact than 1st rounders it is quite bizarre.

Add focused development to the equation and it's more stacked in the favour of your prospects panning out.
