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.
I think that's where we differ. I thought Grossmann was the teams best defender before he got hurt. He was able to shutdown Malkin and the other stars that we were facing and couldn't defend against with our other defenders.

I guess I don't think Mez is as good as you think he is. Obviously just an opinion but the main reason why I would keep Grossmann and Coburn together.
