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.
Absolutely. Moving Sekera comes close to a nonstarter, given how ****** the defense could be at times last year. The only thing I wanted to add is that his value is likely even HIGHER to the more cash strapped teams out there that may try and rely on him as a top pairing guy.
