This is the part that really stands out to me. Sekera has been a real nice player for the Sabres for the past couple of years, but he is poised to get much better and we get to keep him for a very low cap hit. If Tyler Myers doesn't show a good improvement next year, paying $5.5m for him is going to hurt. Ehrhoff has probably hit his peak and needs to stay there. But Sekera, who is supposed to be behind those guys on the depth chart, has already surpassed them and is probably going to continue improving. This is a player to be really excited about as fans, and to hang on to as a team.

I don't understand all of the top 40 talk though. Are you guys being literal, like is there a list of the top 40 defensemen I can go look at somewhere? Or is this a figure of speech, like he's really good, therefor "top 40?"
