Ottawa Senators

Meszaros dealt to Tampa Bay

From TSN:

The Ottawa Senators finally resolved their contract dispute with defenceman Andrej Meszaros on Friday, trading the restricted free agent to the ever-changing Tampa Bay Lightning.

In exchange, the Senators received defencemen Filip Kuba and Alexandre Picard and a first round pick the Lightning previously acquired from the San Jose Sharks. Sources add that Meszaros is expected to sign a six-year contract with the Lightning averaging $4 million a season.

As correctly speculated earlier by The Hockey News, Meszaros is indeed a new member of the Bolts.  Although the 4 million per season is likely more than what the Sens felt Meszaros is worth, 4 million is more or less the market for a young and mobile defenseman of his calibre.  Meszaros’ absence now signficantly enlarges the void of capable defensemen on the Sens blue line.  I can tell you one thing – Filip Kuba is not the answer. 

One thing we do on the IC Hockey Show, in addition to hours of Jets talk, is have a whole lot of fun.
