Methot won't get PP time. Which means 25 even strength (or SH) points. That's not happening. Kuba had 19 even strength points last season. Not happening.
Methot's career high is 17 points (all ES or SH, obviously), when he was playing with Dan Hejda. He also only played 66 games that season, it was a 22 point/year pace. If Methot plays even-strength regularly, and stays healthy, I can easily see him getting 8 more total points (or 3 more points than he was on pace for) than he did with Dan Hejda (a very nice defensive player, but clearly not an offensive dynamo/ Norris Trophy winner).

I'm not saying it's going to happen, but to expect 3-8 more points (depending if you're counting actual points or pace) out of Methot considering who he's playing with isn't a ridiculous proposition at all. If he doesn't miss time with an injury, 20-25 points is a reasonable estimate for someone to have.
