When you lose alot, everyone looks bad. When you win alot, everyone is a stud. That is the case with Methot. He's a solid dman, top 4 most anywhere in the league (hell yeah I'd take him over Nikitin), if not top pairing. He's probably not as good as Sens fans feel he is atm, but he's also considerably better than most CBJ fans will recall.

Bueachemin, Vermette, Klesla, Chimera, Malhotra, Hejda, GlenX, Methot. None of these guys got the fans too excited in Columbus, but they have all been key players for their teams after Columbus.

I was against this trade from the get go. I always felt Methot was underrated here...maybe I was right, but I can tell you now I'm a big fan of this trade after the fact. Methot would not get the TOI here to justify that salary and Foligno is a huge part of the undercurrent of competitiveness that has swept the lockerroom. I love that guy in Union Blue.
