Colorado Fans React To Wolski-Mueller Swap

Colorado fans aren't completely sold on the trade that saw Wojtek Wolski head south to Phoenix. The Avalanche picked up Peter Mueller and Kevin Porter in return.

Here's David Driscoll-Carignan of SBN's Mile High Hockey:

I figured Wolski was going to be on the move. I'm sorry to see him go - I've always been a big fan - but I do feel it was time to make a change. I don't know a ton about Mueller and Porter, but my initial reaction is that I would have liked to see the Avalanche get a bit better return. Wolski is the best player in this deal now and it will take a big turnaround to change that status down the road. Amazingly, the Avalanche get even younger with this deal and shed some cap space - neither of those were hugely important, though.  Mueller and Porter are both intriguing players, and this can become a solid deal for the Avs if either - or both - blossom under Joe Sacco as so many other youngsters have done.
