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?
Seabrook is a decent skater. Montador is a horrible skater. Theres a reason he is known as the traffic cone in Buffalo.

Montador is ok for zone coverage, but on rushes he constantly gets beat. If the price isnt more than a 4th or something than it wouldnt be bad but still.
