C'mon, now. Speed is nice but it isn't the end-all, be-all characteristic of skating. Montador is strong on his skates and is pretty solid, from what I've seen, positionally. His game isn't flashy but, in short, he has repeatedly demonstrated he can be effective in the minutes he logs. If Buffalo stumbles over the next few weeks and drops out of the playoff picture, he'll be a low-cost rental in terms of assets required to obtain him and payroll impact. And he's off the books come July 1.

Also, it's not like Seabrook is known for his wheels. It's the other elements of his game that make him so desirable, am I right?
