...he's already shown he's as good if not marginally better. And he's far cheaper.


The problem with Mez is that, just because he's healthy at the start of the season doesn't mean he's going to stay that way. He's most effective when he's playing physically. It's a big part of his game. Yet, he's already accumulated a shoulder injury while throwing a pretty routine hit. And then there's the past shoulder injuries and the back injury. It's been a long time since he's played a full season or even been at 100%. That's not worth 4 million for a depth dman. I don't see any way to justify that.

Edit: What exactly has Mez done in the last two years that warrants keeping him with our current cap and roster situation?
