So far, Methot is proving those people wrong.


guilty



OK, but if he wasn't playing with the best player in the world, would he still look effective playing 20 min a night? Maybe not so much. Karlsson has a huge impact on him looking so good. Not much defensding needs to be done out there.


But I was wrong. He's better than 3rd pair. I like him as a #4.








Also to the other people^, Kuba has a better shot, and is just a better decision maker. The Sens would score more goals if Kuba was here instead of Methot. That's obviously a positive contribution as well.
