I'm not happy about that either. As far as I'm concerned, I think Meighan can become another Scott Timmins and in the few shifts he's had with Pederson and Bailey, he does have decent hands. I would expect that next year, with more icetime with players other than 16 year old rookies he's been playing with most of the time, he can put up the same numbers and play the same role that Timmins did at the same age. I see Meighan as possible captain material in his OA season.
If you're going to offer a '94 forward, why not offer Marcantuoni? He's been given many opportunities now and hasn't started putting up points. I think it's evident now that what we've gotten out of him in a Ranger uniform is all we're going to get.
MM is a prime player for a change of scenery. Using that sales pitch, Spott would likely get more in return for him than he would for Meighan. It's not like we're going to miss his offense.
