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)
Sorry, I didn't mean straight-up, it would definately have to be part of a package both ways likely. I just meant Brodz would fit our needs without adding cap or term.

McNabb w/ Myers was just a spitball idea - I was far more focused on the front end than the back.

If we were to ship out Sekera though, trading some wing/young D depth for a guy like Hjalmarsson, or even Tallinder to play with Myers would likely be neccassary.
