    Never saw Mueller, but I was amazed with Kessel. He is #1 overall material.

    Kessel without a f***ing doubt.

    Mueller is a VERY interesting prospect.He's a very skilled center.From what I've read He's a very offensive center with good playmaking skills.He's doing quite well with the U18 usa team.

    I just hope both will be wearing Maroon and Gold. Kessel next year and Mueller the year after that.

    Mueller brings a more complete and physical game. Kessel is indeed fast and a sniper, but that isn't enough in the NHL. Please don't take this wrong, but I have no other way of saying it, but Kessel is soft and a defensive liability. Conversely, Mueller is complete. If you have seen them play, and you are projecting for the NHL, it is Mueller hands down.

    I like Kessel better skill-wise, but Mueller has the better size, and can really develop into a good power-forward type.

    I see Kessel as the much better player now, but Mueller is more raw and could be the better pick. I think Kessel will have the advantage playing at a higher level next year, and if he has anywhere near a solid season in college he will get the nod over Mueller, if he is still playing for the U-18's, I think Mueller's only shot to go higher is if he goes to the WHL.
