I don't even think he was bad at that... I think he made 2 gaffes on the PP... and one toronto ES play that stands out... and someone associated those 3 plays with minutes to come up with a lazy opinion.
The facts don't lie. Sekera was awesome... and he was incredibily underrated in his offensive ability... primarily because he is the best puck possession defensemen on the team, and the offense flows through him as possession transitions up ice... it just doesnt lead to a lot of points because his ozone playmaking is not a strong suit of his game... (while his D and N zone abilities still lead to quite a bit of offensive production, as demonstrated by his HIGHER GF per 60 Mins ES.... higher then Myers)
