That is a decent amount of veteran leaders that can help the kids.

Ott should be kept, yes, but to assume, given his style of play, that he can be effective when the Sabres rebuild train exits the other end of he tunnel, is speculative. Same with Kaleta. Myers is still a kid. Moreover, I don't want Myers helping anyone else but himself, six days a week and twice on Sundays.

I absolutely want Sekera around for a deep playoff run after a (assumed 2-year) rebuild.

Is there a more valuable contract on the Sabres Blueline? Rhetorical Q. - you don't need to answer that. I'd bet over 2 dozen NHL GMs would love to have Sekera for the last 2 years of his contract, given his actual salary, cap, abilities, and versatility in situations / minutes.
