That's not exactly true. There was one instance in the game where Meszaros got the puck in the Flyers' zone, skated it out with a nice move on a Devils forechecker, and put the puck on a forward's (yes, a Flyers forward) stick. I had a few seconds of, "Oh, yeah, that's why Holmgren picked this guy up." Then everything went into the toilet.

Meszaros did show some nice footwork around the net (unfortunately, his own). Maybe the Union would have some interest.
