Im fairly confident he can be a top pairing guy over the course of a full season with or without Karlsson.
We wouldn't need him to play against the other teams top forwards, Smid and Petry do a good job at that. We'd need him to play with Justin Schultz and cover for his mistakes while still helping create offense. The first, I agree he could do. The second, not so much. I'm sorry, but Marc Methot isn't a legitimate top pair d-man, which is what we need. You don't want to move him, and we don't need him.
