10:30 AM ET 07.29 | While Ottawa native Marc Methot is getting the chance to play in his hometown, he's also going to be under the microscope. If he makes a mistake, he might get criticized or take it from a caller to the Team 1200 post-game show. His parents, Al and Betty, along with the rest of his family, certainly wouldn't have heard that criticism in Columbus. Methot's not worried. "I better play good hockey, right?" said Methot, tongue-in-cheek. "When I'm focused I'm not concerned with that stuff. When you're playing in a market like this, you're going to get criticized. It's part of the game. Do I ignore it? Yes. I try not to listen to it. Does it bother me? I'd be lying if I said I just shrugged it off. Sometimes it will piss you off. You've got to deal with it. My parents, family and friends, understand it's not always going to be peaches and cream." He's glad people care here. That wasn't always the case in Columbus.

Yes, I can! In fact, I can do three: a) Do you know what hockey is? b) Do you know where Ottawa is? And, c) Can you find your way back to the football threads? :-)
