From TBO:

One day after Meszaros was acquired from Ottawa in a deal for defensemen Filip Kuba and Alex Picard along with a 2009 first-round pick, the Lightning reached terms with their newest acquisition that will pay $24 million over six years.

The back-loaded contract will pay the 6-foot-2, 218-pound defenseman $2.5 million next season, $3.25 million in 2009-10, $4 million in 2010-11 and 2011-12, $4.75 million in 2012-13 and $5.5 million in 2013-14.
