Sens defenceman Marc Methot realizes changes may come

From slow starts to poor finishes, defensive collapses to shootout blanks, to giving up so many shots against and not getting enough the other way, to communication, preparation and execution issues "they are slipping out of the playoff race before it has even really begun.

Senators defenceman Marc Methot considers wearing visor

Marc Methot really does want to start wearing a visor. He knows the dangers of playing without one. He was reminded again in Detroit on Wednesday, when Pavel Datsyuk flipped the puck up, then hit it again in mid-air, trying to get around the stubborn Senators defenceman. Instead, the puck hit Methot just above he left eye, leaving a gash that needed three stitches. By the mess,...

Ask A Columbus Blue Jackets Blogger (@bzarcher) ....about Methot

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.
