11th overall in 2013
1st rd pick in 2014

Meszaros

This move would also clear about 5M to get additional 3rd and 4th line wingers, maybe a serviceable 6th defenseman and a goalie.

Thoughts? Would the pot need to be sweeter to get FLA to do it?
It will cost more than that. You're essentially asking Florida to give up a franchise talent that will be cost controlled for years for what amounts to spare parts. Swap Read + Mez with Couturier or BSchenn and they'd think about it.
