Which ulitmately is where all of this started -- the discussion about who if anyone on the blueline goes. Sekera provides considerable value, then factor in his cap and real dollar cost and it's nearly too sweet to move unless it's a damn good return (Staal) to shore up a glaring area of need. Even then, that is going to tear those solid minutes out and it's not like they replace them for the same cost-to-performance in UFA. UFA d-men putting up that sort of positive defensive stats are drawing 4.5 M per or more. He's the Sabres for $2.75M. That's chump-change.
