The 6th Sens:
I haven't caught too many Blue Jackets games the last few seasons so it's kind of difficult for me to give an informed take on Marc Methot. Outside of his appearances for Team Canada at the World Championships I'm not sure I have any memories of him as a player. So I turned to Matt Wagner (@bzarcher) who writes at the excellent Jackets blog The Cannon to answer a few questions fans in Ottawa may have.
1. What does he do well?
Meth is a good guy in the room and very personable when dealing with the community off the ice. On ice, he's a great stay at home d-man who knows how to use his body with great on ice vision. I think he's a bit underrated as a pure defender.
