Second, I haven't followed the matchups as closely the last few games, but during the win streak, Wier and Gonchar were playing against top lines. Not Methot. Gonchar is always the one facing top lines since Karlsson went and Wiercioch has been his partner most of the time.

Lastly, Wier is the ROOKIE. So Methot is a little better now (I have doubts about this because of the offensive side of the game), Wier has potential. The Sens are not in a win now mode, and Wier will be better long term. It's a no brainer to keep PW.
Weir's going to be 23 this year. Methot is 27. It's not like Methot is some grizzled vet, or that there is much of a difference between their ages...
