I think Brodziak would be a great addition... but not at the cost of a top 3 defensemen. A defensemen who can eat minutes on a top pairing with Myers, or play a shutdown role with Regehr. That versatility along with the contract value/length, is not something you trade for a 3rd line center.

McNabb has not been all that good this year in Roch, penciling him into the top pair is crazy.

Plus, trading Sekera will leave the Sabres with TWO experienced NHLer's on the blueline next season (Myers, Ehrhoff)
