I would not be willing to give up roster players outside of Meszaros for basically anything that doesn't upgrade our team now. I don't consider a 1B goaltender a worthy upgrade compared to what we could get on the FA market.

Sure, it's not on the same scale as the Couturier for Yandle vs. mid-round pick for Streit deal, but the principle is the same.
Meszaros and/or futures is about what I'm looking for. Especially since Couturier for Yandle is asinine. Halak wouldn't be a 1B, because Mason isn't any kind of 1.

Halak? Yes he is. Injury risk is roughly the same, and he has better numbers.
