Roster tweaking.

Is it just me or does it seem like Filip Kuba and Alexandre Picard got punked this off season? Granted, their heads were on the chopping block earlier during the draft, but I'm sure they thought they were in the clear since nothing actually was official. Don't get too comfy boys, you're getting shipped to Ottawa! In comes defenseman Andrej Meszaros, who I really do hope will fill the lack of defense we have on the team since the Boyle/Lukowich trade. At least the Lightning are working their way down in age with this player rather than working their way up. CoughcoughRobertscoughcough. I'll tell you what though, the 22 year old does have great credentials. He's played 246 consecutive games and logs an average of 21 minutes on the ice. He ended the season with Ottawa having 36 points under his belt, nine of which were from goals. With pre-season games starting in just a few weeks (yay!), I wonder if it's safe to say that the Lightning are finally finished tweaking the roster.
