One other thing to point out, despite the difficult competition and relatively few offensive zone faceoffs, Sekera still allowed the fewest shots per 60 minutes of any Sabre defenseman at 24.6/shots per 60. This was SIGNIFICANTLY better than the rest.

Sekera - 24.6
Weber - 25.7
Regehr - 28.3
Sulzer - 28.9
Leopold - 29.1
Ehrhoff - 29.3
Myers - 30.1

Sekera experienced a bit of a role shift this season as he saw his offensive zone starts decrease and his quality of competition increase. I think once he gets more settled and used to that, the offense will return.
Sekera took the next step last year... and the fan base seems to have a great many that were too blind to even see it.
