20 games isn't exactly hindsight.
I liked this trade then and I like it now. Methot can be a piece of work. He is a capable enough player and he can also be wildly inconsistent. If he ends up being a consistent player for your team, good for you and good for him.
Time will tell, for you, if he really is a legitimate top 4 d-man for you. He certainly played that way for stretches with us. He also played like total garbage for stretches too.
But much better end of the deal as Espen suggests? No. Methot was expendable and we got back good value in return. We need a little more from Foligno on the offensive end of the ice, but we need that from everyone so it's not exactly something uncommon to this team. This is his first season in the West, along with a few other players. I expected a drop off this season to be honest. Playing in the West is quite a bit different.
