They have 7 decent guys now, and Hal Gill.

Coburn-Timonen
Grossmann-Streit
MacDonald-Schenn
Gustafsson

To lesson the ultimate cost of MacDonald and to be fair to Meszaros as a player who wants to play.

I don't think anyone views Meszaros being the deciding factor in the balance of power between the Flyers and Bruins this season...

No, they always say that, there's a lot of posters who overestimate the trade value of their team's players.

Meszaros is still a UFA next year carrying a 5M cap hit

Lol. No. 2 months ago people were saying he was untradeable, even for a late late pick.

He wasn't pretty in Philly, but Boston system seems easier to play for defensemen than Philly, so he might turn out good for them. Might.

Something is better than nothing.

His strong offensive play has had fans hoping for a 2nd, but after getting AMac the Flyers were obviously in the weaker position here. Mez had to go. A 3rd is fine.

Yes, cap space for another deal might be a factor, but we also had too many NHL d-men after acquiring MacDonald yesterday. We had 9. As it stands now:

Timonen
Coburn
L. Schenn
Streit
MacDonald
Grossmann
Gustafsson
Gill

I don't know what message boards you were reading. We were talking about trading him for a 7th just to get him off of our hands. A 4th sounded like a dream at the time.

"A lot" means we don't have to read every word. I can't remember seeing any Flyers fan this season ever say Mez was worth a 1st. Obviously ridiculous.

Mez has been the Flyers primary whipping boy for over a year now. Most fans just wanted him gone.

not one Flyers fan wanted a 1st at any time for Mez. Coburn/Timonen, yes, but not Mez
