Jacket fans really overating Methot in this thread
Tyutin/Nikitan were there best dmen last year
Johnson/Wiz looked good to end year
Methot was nothing special who is up and down in his play
And before that he was looking like a good young defenseman who was improving every year. Methot could still be a very capable top four minute muncher, he was just pushed down the depth chart slowly ever since Nikitin rose up and J.J. came in.
Americanize our team more though wow! We even got the captain on the backend.
Well Nicky really was a 3rd line guy and every year there was gonna be more young players biting at his heels. I liked his physicality on our top 2 lines, but not his numbers. Having said that, we could have gotten a lot more for him than this.
