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.
Ok, so what you are saying is if you had a choice to start a team and you can pick one of Sekera, Ehrhoff or Myers you would pick Sekera. Sounds logical to me, continue.
Also it is a bad arguement to say that we didnt make the playoffs because our other defencemen preformed so poorly it allowed Sekera to be called the best of the bunch.
Hey if you are happy with this all the more power to you. I care about wins, loses and playoffs and as Sekera with the best "stats" on the team we didnt make it. PERIOD
