Not opposed to such but that would likely mean that Sekera goes to another team in a package to get another NHL center back to replace the hole left by Roy....?

Not only less of a package going to the other team for Ryan vs. Kane but the Sabres would be getting a better deal coming their way: bigger player with speed, offensive skills and better contract. And that's ignoring any of the controversy that Kane's off-ice habits bring compared to Ryan's.

Sometimes, I think the Buffalo-born angle and "hometown boy comes back" premises get so overhyped and built-up as a misguided priority. It's as if playing in the city you grew up on instantly translates to success when, instead, I think history has shown that doing so puts more pressure and public scrutiny on the player than normal.
