idk. Lilja has played pretty good. his coverage has been solid, and his physical play in the corners has been an asset. Mez's physical play sometimes becomes a weakness. He applies his physical play at times when he shouldn't, such as pinching at the blueline to go for a hit and giving up the middle of the ice, and fails to recognize times when he should, such as a player wide open at the side of the net. He's also not the greatest positional defenseman, and doesn't have a very effective stick at all.

If Mez can come back 100% and be the Mez of last season, then i'm all for him taking Lilja's spot... but if he's being rushed back and if he starts the lackluster play he showed this past season? i say leave him out, unless we get into trouble and need a shakeup.
