By those overrating the risk involved.

I didn't ever see it as a "gamble" in the sense that it didn't have a downside. Tampa fans overreacted to Meszaros' play with the Lightning. He was never that bad, but fans down there called him Krajicek, which is absurd. Secondly, you pretty much knew he was going to get better in a situation that was easier for him in so many ways.

There was no risk, just different levels of reward.
