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 agree with your point, but I'll quibble with your list a bit. Hejda played his best shutdown hockey in Columbus, and Malhotra and Vermette played many of their best years here.

And Glencross and Beauchemin were just screw ups, but every team has a few of those guys that they give up on too early and lose to the waiver wire or trade throw-ins. I don't know if we're special in that regard.

Klesla might be the best comparison to Methot for your point.
