I think it's a good deal for both teams. If the rumors were true and Meszaros indeed received an offer sheet from Tampa, Ottawa would have never won their case. I don't see him being worth 5M a year so they got rid of a headcase and got a first round pick back, along with two roster players.

I am not sold on Tampa but at least they get a legitimate NHL defenseman in this. I don't understand how their offense is so lethal though, and it probably has a lot to do with the fact that I am not sold on Ryan Malone (not at all) and I don't believe it's fair to Stamkos to have to replace Brad Richards in his first NHL season... Hope they miss the playoffs once again instead of being rewarded for throwing money away like this.
