If any sens fans think he wouldn't improve their team, they are crazy. Mezsaros is a small price to pay, even without taking into account that Mac would take off 2 mill from Fedorov's salary.
Defense has been mentioned repeatedly in this thread. But Ottawa has Spezza (offense) and Fisher (defense). Smoke and/or White are perfectly adequate for the secondary roles remaining (2nd line C, PP unit and PK unit).
Despite what a few fans have to say, center really isn't a problem. The 2nd line will be defensively responsible and Alfie will make it productive. What more do we need?

I too think it's great he's produced in the playoffs, but I also think we can get a player that actually fills a hole who can be good in the playoffs (tough LW'er anyone? )
