Leeton-Whitton is set to shock the Riverina League and surge into premiership contention with the pending return of a number of Crows juniors.
The cancellation of a number of seasons around the country is likely to work in the Crows' favour with the club hopeful of welcoming a number of key recruits, pending clearances.
Former AFL player Sam Darley is expected to become available for a full season, with issues crossing the Tasmanian border making his commitment to home club North Hobart virtually impossible.
Lucas Meline, Mitch Hardie and Jonathon Spina are also keen to return to their home club from Canberra Demons if the NEAFL, which is currently postponed and in grave doubt, does not go ahead.
Muir insists there is another big group of players that could also don Crows colours in a shortened Riverina League season.
"We get potentially nine to 11 players," Muir said.
"Meline, Hardie, Spina from Canberra, plus Sam Darley is playing now. We've just got to get the clearance through. He's got to fly back to Tassie and quarantine for 14 days and they reckon that will be going for a while so he's not flying back and will play eight, nine games, whatever. That's massive.
"There's another four or five more that I can't mention yet that are all walk-up starts, as good as them if not better.
"So I'm praying the season goes ahead."
Hardie and Meline have established themselves as two of Canberra Demons' best players in recent years, while Spina earned Ovens and Murray representative selection in his time at Lavington before moving to the nation's capital.
"It will be huge if it all goes ahead," Muir said.
"It will be unbelievable but in saying that, I'm not too sure how many clubs will be in the same boat. There could be heaps of clubs. But the big thing for us is they are all one pointers. Clubs can try and recruit blokes with stuff all salary cap but all these guys are worth one point, whereas other clubs trying to recruit guys who are three or four points, you can only have a couple of them.
"The players coming back have said they'll play for nothing, purely for the sake of getting a kick in and they're all locals. We'll have to wait for the clearances and stuff, but bearing in mind they all go through, it should be pretty posiitve and will create a buzz around the place."
After some initial drama surrounding the initial recruitment of Darley, Muir expects him to be cleared to the Crows.
"It shouldn't be (a problem) in the current circumstances," he said.
"At the end of the day, I realise North Hobart would have liked to keep him but you've got to be realistic. What's the point of going down there (from Melbourne) and having to qurantine 14 days? It's not viable."
Muir said the return of some Crows juniors, plus the addition of Darley, will work in perfectly with the club's next generation of stars, who have impressed him on the track either side of the coronavirus lockdown.
"It's positive signs but in saying that, I'm still keen to keep the progression of all the young kids," he said.
"We started training pretty well, and had our first praccy game and played The Rock, we had a lot of kids and beat them pretty convincingly so it's positive signs, but we've just got to wait and see."
Muir himself will now be right to go for round one after missing all of last year with a shoulder injury.
"I'll be good. I probably wasn't going to play the first four weeks, it wasn't going to be ready but I should be right to go now, touchwood," he said.
