Don't rehash the debate about acquiring the "failures" of Meszaros and Carle from Tampa.
You're going to lose every time.
I'm not "rehashing" any debate. Meszaros was a failure in TB, Carle wasn't a failure until about mid Feb on. The point is that Meszaros is a fine 3rd pairing D-Man. Play him first or second pairing minutes like the Flyers did from about February on, and the results speak for themselves.
Playing on the third pairing where he belongs and he's rarely matched up against top lines from opposing teams. If Pronger, Carle, Coyburn, & Timmo are all healthy and in the lineup at the start of the playoffs, Meszaros plays about 14-16 min per game which is the most he should be on the ice anyway.
