Meszaros to OTT

Wouldn't mind having him back in Ottawa to help strengthen our D.

What if NSH doesn't match the offer sheet and Pronger comes back halfway through the season, or decides to retire? Philly would need some cap space.

What would it cost from Ottawa? We can definitely take on salary without having to send any back.

A Pick in 2013? Or a prospect like Patrick Wiercioch?

I don't think he would want to come back to Ottawa.

Everything that happened with his negotiations was 4 years ago, he could have easily gotten over it by now. Plus we don't know what even happened during those negotiations, except that he wanted more money than Ottawa was willing to pay.

Only way this can happen is if Ottawa gets rid of Gone-char.

Otherwise Ottawa is paying their RD way too much. And the Euge won't be happy adding another $4M.

I'm absolutely fine with our D right now. Don't need another LD anyways.

Mesz would probably play RD with the Sens, no?

He plays RD with the Flyers because all of our defensemen (pre-Schenn and Weber) are LH. He typically is paired with one of the young call-ups in the bottom pair and does pretty well with it, but still manages to suck when he gets bumped to top pairing. He just can't handle being "the guy"

I'd be happy with a 2nd and an AHLer, or a 3rd and a prospect who has a shot at the NHL...or just a 1st

This. He's played RD in Ottawa and Philly, not sure about TBL but that's probably why he failed

I was actually going to start a thread asking what it would take to get Volchenkov back to Ottawa.

He went downhill a bit from when he was in Ottawa, but everyone says he's returned in Philly. I admittedly don't really see him much. Having said that, he was playing with Redden in his prime, so he might have been sheltered. Redden also went downhill when he left, so maybe he was actually keeping Redden afloat.

He wouldn't be a horrible addition, but I don't know if he'd be happy to come back. Sens fans don't hold a grudge, we just couldn't afford him. We got a pretty good return, but he might have felt slighted by the trade.

He's a good #4, but Ottawa is kind of full now. Maybe next year when Gonchar is gone. He does play RD

Edit: For those asking about Volchy, I think it could be an option as well if Boro and Lundin don't work out. Also, Mes can play LD so he's a possibility if Methot, Phillips, and/or Cowen get injured. He's not the worst, and we have tons of room.

I'd do it. Would a 3rd + Shane Prince do the trick, from Ottawa?
