Getting Mezaros wouldn't significantly enhance their playoff chances. If they had been able to put in an offer and land a guy like Jeff Carter, that would have enchanced their playoff chances, not Mezaros.
Well, the reasoning I think would be that if Meszaros would be brought in, someone is brought out. At that point you'd got to imagine a player like Salo or Krajicek is likely on the way out.
IMO Meszaros is worth losing the picks for, and if Ottawa chooses to lose a player of his ability for draft picks, so be it. But that said a team like Columbus might have even more to gain, especially as their roster is really starting to come together with Leclaire in net.
