Meszaros to Tampa

What an interesting trade.....the Ottawa Senators have sent defenseman Andrej Meszaros to the Tampa Bay Lightning for defensemen Alex Picard and Filip Kuba.

Now, I know Tampa was just trying to strengthen their 'D' corps, but they may have actually weakened them. Kuba was set to be the veteran leader of the team, while Picard has the potential to follow in the steps of young defenders like Brent Burns and Mark Streit. Meszaros received heavy criticism for not being able to keep up his strong play from his rookie season after Zdeno Chara left for Boston.

Maybe it'll work out, but I doubt it....
