Just because he gets better competition doesn't mean he was the shutdown dman. If the Goose line was out playing against team's lines with Sekera that doesn't mean it was because HE was the one Ruff was looking to. Sekera played excellent last year and was the team's option for shutting down oppositing fast/skilled players (Like Kessel/Ovechkin) because he is faster than Myers. Ehrhoff brought this team to another level and I really liked the Sulzer-Ehrhoff line. Hopefully Weber is the 7th and our dmen are Myers, Regher, Sulzer, Ehrhoff, Sekera, McNabb..... thats a nicelooking d core for 4-5 years (minus Regher)
When Sekera played with Regehr they were our shutdown pairing. We started the season with Myers/Regehr in that role. Even had a stretch with Leo/Regehr in that role due to injuries.
