The Meszaros Trade: Has it been worth it?

Hello fellow Philly fans,

I thought of this idea elsewhere a while ago so I decided to bring it to HF.

Although some heads were scratching at the time, I think that the Meszaros trade was worth the draft pick given up. He's helping by taking minutes off Chris Pronger and Kimmo Timonen and generally bolstering our defence (usually being the 3rd or 4th best D-man on the team; definitely better than Coburn).

On the O-side, he gets points and scores clutch goals (could be very good in the playoffs in tight situations). Plus, he`s still young, only 25. His large salary is a bit unfortunate but it's not like we signed him to the contract to begin with.

I'm happy, to tell you the truth I was a big fan of his while he was in Ottawa.
