The guy is fine on a third pairing on very good teams, but he's not leading any team anywhere playing in your top four. BTW how is Tampa doing without him?
This fact coupled with Matt Carle sucking leads to the conclusion that Patrick Roy in his prime could have been in goal and the Flyers still lose to the Bruins.
The defense got worse because Pronger > Meszaros.
Don't rehash the debate about acquiring the "failures" of Meszaros and Carle from Tampa.
You're going to lose every time.
