Andrej Meszaros to the Bruins

The Philadelphia Flyers have dealt defenseman Andrej Meszaros to the Boston Bruins for a third round pick.

Bruins acquire Andrej Meszaros.

 SPECTOR’S NOTE: The Flyers’ addition yesterday of Andrew MacDonald from the Islanders made Meszaros expendable. He’s also a UFA this summer and wasn’t going to be re-signed. The Bruins have sought a short-term replacement for the sidelined Dennis Seidenberg.

Meszaros had an up-and-down career with the Flyers. Some seasons, he was among their best defensemen. In others, like this season, he struggled. He could regain his game with the Bruins under coach Claude Julien. Still, it’s also worth remembering the Bruins acquired Tomas Kaberle three years ago and he didn’t really mesh well with them. Could the same happen with Meszaros? Or will he be a better fit? Time will tell.

  1. Mez played with Chara during the Olympics . I highly doubt he has trouble meshing in with the Bruins.

    • As I said, time will tell. If he does, it’s a great rental pickup for the Bruins.

    • Well we all saw how that went….

  2. Good, Because with Mez there won’t be any break in period…..if he’s paired with Z.
    Also, he is a veteran, and that is needed on this D.

  3. “Still, it’s also worth remembering the Bruins acquired Tomas Kaberle three years ago and he didn’t really mesh well with them.”

    If the turnout is the same, I’ll take it! ;)

    • The Bruins won in spite of Kaberle, not because of him.
