When it comes to intimidating defensemen, many teams dreaded playing against Marc Methot. The former NHL player carved out his career by relentlessly shutting down the opposition's top players.

Now retired, Methot has been transitioning to a role off the ice, lately working with TSN Hockey.

After yet another disappointing season for the Toronto Maple Leafs, Methot was asked,

"Who would you trade, if anyone?"

His answer may not sit well with Leafs Nation; he surprisingly suggested trading the team's star player, Auston Matthews.

Matthews is nearing the end of his current contract. If he doesn't re-sign with the Leafs, he will become an unrestricted free agent next summer.

Matthews has recently faced heavy criticism for his performance in key games, particularly for not scoring when it really mattered. Having been held scoreless in the second round series against the Florida Panthers, it might honestly make the most sense to consider trading Matthews, according to Methot.
