Toronto - Buffalo

Brian Burke and Darcy Regier never usually deal with each other. The only deal they've actually made was Dominic Moore to Buffalo for a 2nd back when Moore was with us. Despite that I think there is a deal to be made here.



Andrej Sekera



Clarke MacArthur


Buffalo has an excess of D-men and Toronto has an excess for Forwards with space needed for Kadri, Frattin.

MacArthur is good for 20+ goals and will give Buffalo depth in scoring. Sekera will stabilize our defense as he is a very strong two-way guy. With Gardiner's injury, Toronto needs insurance.

No thanks. I'd trade any of: Leopold, Regehr, Brennan before Sekera. He plays very tough minutes for Buffalo and does very well with them. And Buffalo really isn't in need of wingers unless it's an upgrade in our top 6 (say, over Stafford), which MacA is not.

Sekera isn't going anywhere

He's signed for 3 more years at 2.75 and can play big minutes in all situations.

There's nothing you'd be willing to part with that would get you close

I respectfully disagree with some of my fellow Sabre fans and think Sekera is very available. He would come at a relatively steep price though. As I put in the other thread, Kadri + Finn.

Sabres say no.

However he doesn't really fit with Toronto being another LHD of which we have plenty, he's a great player and plays a similar to Gunnarson.

Who are the Sabres RHD not including Myers?

there aren't any

Sekera, Leopold, and Ehrhoff have all played the right side, but they are lefties

you can think up all sorts of nonsense, doesn't make it plausible.

Name 1 player, locked up to a long term deal, that Regier has ever traded?

Myers is the only one (at least in the NHL, because in the A there's Pysyk and Gauthier-Leduc). Sekera and Ehrhoff play the right side though.

no no no and no

The Sabres don't need another one dimensional winger, especially one so average as MacArthur, and especially not at the price of Sekera.

Absolutely no. Like others have stated, the other defenseman we have are absolutely up for trade talks. Sekera would cost more than the Leafs would like to give up such as JVR, or prospects like Percy or Biggs.

Did not know that, what would it take to add for Sekera prospect wise?

Mac+Blacker+3rd?

Although Garth from Hockeybuzz may tell you Sekera is available, he most defiantly is not. He is a young top 4 defenceman who plays shut down minutes at a measly 2.75 per, won't be going anywhere unless its to bring in a top line forward.

LOL. As a gm in Burke's shoes I would die of laughter, block your number, and set up a drive by egging on your home. The + after kadri almost made me faint of shock.

JVR? You're asking for the moon you need to calm down with that request. Guys like Sekera are MUCH easier to find. No chance buddy.

And it's amazing how blind you are at scouting talent LOL. Your boy Sekera is much worse than gunnar in comparison and he can be found in every draft. Thanks for the laugh tho 2.75 is the contract for a reason!

What possible reason would Buffalo have to move a young top-4 d-man on a reasonable contract for Kadri?

I actually scouted your boy by watching him play during the Leaf, Sabres match ups. I won't go there and assume how you came about your extremely low value scouting report on Kadri though. Ill let you do your thing and laugh.

Sekera is fantastic, you guys value him like we value Gunnar, it's only fair your asking price is high.
