IMO Tyutin is as good as he's going to get and i am just not at all impressed. He's just ok offensively and terrible defensively. It's scary thinking he's going to be on our top pair!
He's not terrible defensively. He's just not a shut down guy. We have been giving him more responsibility than we should.

Methot, is there more in him? Possible. A lot more? Highly doubtful. Don't put false expectations on him. Methot has a lot to prove before you even consider him in a true shut down role. He's probably going to get the chance this year. He'll probably get better.

Tyutin has more upside on one end of the ice, Methot on the other.
