I think, though, that we forget that mez was injured for a big chunk of last year and even when he returned in the playoffs he was far from 100%. I think you have to put mez with Coburn, because I believe that the elevated play of Coby is what made the Coburn-grossmann pair so effective. Meszaros is a better player flat out than grossmann, imo, and with our lack of a true #1 d man, I think you have to put them together. putting mez on the 3rd pairing is pointless i think. I believe grossmann is the type of simple, solid, positionally sound player you want anchoring a 3rd pairing, rather than a guy like mez.
