Only 28 of the top 60 Quality of Competition defensemen in the NHL also had a positive GF/GA differential per 60 AND a positive Relative Corsi

Of those 28, do you know how many were under 26 yrs old?

Sekera was one of the 40 best defensemen in the NHL last year.

This is hardly some prospect in Europe that we don't see play. We've watched Sekara come here for years now, and he's never shown me more than decent Dman. He's on the small side, he doesn't produce anywhere near the offence people hoped, and in the past couple games up here he seemed completely lost. He's a nice mid-pairing defenceman, for sure.
Again... I would be embarrassed if I had an opinion that was so completely contradicted by that silly thing called "facts".

Sorry that I wouldn't want the Sens to give up anything substantive for him. Maybe if you come up with some nice comparison to Carkner, I could be swayed.
I'm not sorry,
