Everyone throws Mez in deals like he has a lot of value. His value is shot- injury plagued, mid pairing defenseman making 4 mil.

The deal would have to start with Laughton and a first and go from there.
Pretty much. Though, like others I am not totally sold on Yandle. If they are trading for a serious defender, Yandle would not be my first choice.

Yeah, at first I didn't think so, but I could see them buying out Mez this offseason. When he is healthy he is fine and IMO worth his contract. The problem is that the majority of the time he is not healthy. I wouldn't be opposed to buying him out (or dealing him for peanuts).
