Wait, we have a log jam at D? Sulzer is in our top 6.
Leopold-Myers
Regehr-Sekera
Sulzer-Ehrhoff
Weber

Weber, Regehr, Leo, and Sulzer all have deals that expire this summer, leaving us with...
Sekera-Myers
McNabb?-Ehrhoff
???-Pysyk

Also Read's offensive performance last year would almost assuredly never be replicated in Buffalo, while Sekera is, like, a really good defenseman on a great contract.
