You just supported my argument..thanks! His contract merits more than playing "well-enough" which I interpret as average....
Again we can agree to disagree....he may be a top 4 defender technically but with that salary (no different than Carle) I would like to see him hold his own more and do a little more on the PP. We have Carle with the shot of a child back there and then Mesz with a shot about as accurate as a scud missile.
Anyway...while I agree it's a bit too soon I'm just of the opinion that it's best to move the both of them and push the reset button.
Let's see how Meszeros responds..he may be salvageable if he starts playing at least above average. Carle is just average regardless...
