I cant imagine if he was playing like this he wasnt on your top pairing, so it leads me to believe he simply wasnt as good there. Im just curious about why that is.
Watching him in Ottawa this season, he isn't playing any differently than he did in Columbus.

It's likewise for Foligno. It's a good trade for both teams, but I would be really hesitant about parading around Methot like Columbus fans did with Nikitin. I would expect a regression come next season (with regards to Methot's play).
