Sekera has a tidy cap value that isn't going to be easily replaced in free agency. But... it would open up a full-time position for McNabb. I think the offset in possible line matching up front would offset the lose on the blueline in the short-term. With the Sabres pipeline on the backend bubbling up, I could see them taking the risk on going young for one or two of their blueline.

Then again, maybe they could play up the PA connections for Weber and move him instead? Didn't think so...
