My observation on Myers is that at his best he's easily a no1 dman with the tools to be a Norris winner. His undervalue is a result of a 3 month slump in his sophomore season and a slight slump last year plus decreased point production due to him playing a more defensive role due to Ehrhoff and also injuries. His issue from what I've seen is that he does poorly with certain D partners and he's not assertive enough in jumping in the offense though that latter part usually fixes itself as dmen age assuming they have the proper offensive potential.
So atm, Myers is quite undervalued and it's not the right time to move him if the Sabres needed to theoretically. Based on how he played at his peak for small parts of last season between injuries and that slump, he was a top 10 dman.
I think this forum does underrate him quite a bit. But certainly Buffalo knows what they have in him and other GM's also know he's as close to unavailable as it gets.
