Well he did look like a 2nd pair guy, not top pair. He might have been the best defenseman defensively but he still wasn't perfect in that regard. He played well, that doesn't mean he can sustain it over 48 games +.

And the Sens still gave up a defenseman of his caliber to free agency and traded Foligno to fill the hole. This doesn't change that.

I want Methot's play to lead a select few posters to a cathartic moment that centers around two main ideas:

1) let the trade play out before you make a final verdict
2) TOI means dick-all.
I wasn't gonna say anything but Manked brought me up, and then RKL dragged it out.
