Good move for Philly. Losing Carle appears to have hurt the team a lot more than is should have. Meszaros is alright for moving the puck but he can't run a powerplay. There weren't a lot of options this offseason and Kimmo was probably the best one. Expensive, but it's a good stop gap until they can sign, trade, or develop something long term.

Ottawa might have to do the same thing with Gonchar if he's willing. Injuries (Cowen, Lundin) and lack of experience (Wiercioch, Boro, Ceci, Claesson, etc...) dictate what a stop gap might be needed as well. Especially with Phillips aging as well.
