The guy isn't even 30 years old. Hell he isn't even 28.
There is a risk though for other teams when it comes to Mez, for teams that operate towards the cap they're dedicating $4M to a guy who hasn't played much hockey in the last two years & to teams with an internal budget paying him $5M in actual salary for the same reasons.

There is a risk in taking on Mez & I wouldn't call it low, moderate would probably be the more appropriate word. If it was such a low risk the Flyers would be trying to keep him.
