I like Sekera, but I'm not ecstatic about the price we paid for him.. Sekera is a vast improvement over McBain though, so I'm fine with this.

On the plus side, this contract is nice for a top 4 guy, very affordable. Should make an OK #3/4 guy for us next year.
Cam still has more than a few years left. We're not looking for a goalie of the future, we're looking for a backup of the now.

Well, actually for his price, Sekera is pretty good. He's legit top 4 dman. But we need much more than him.

Can Sekera play the right side? Maybe the Buffalo fans lurking can chime in here.

I don't hate this move.

McBain has been available for quite some time, he was almost valueless. A second round pick for Sekera isn't bad. He is on a pretty good contract and Buffalo fans seem to think he has been one of their better defenseman.

This is putting immediate needs over a long term plan, like stated above, but we NEEDED an upgrade in our top 4 right away.

That's probably a good thing to figure out before I go posting theoretical lineups.


I just liked the way Gleason and Faulk played together, and IIRC Pitkanen isn't worth a damn on the right side.

Thank you. Took the words literally out of my mouth.

Now that I've had 5 minutes to think about it, I don't mind the trade. We add a top 4 guy to help right away and e give Tlusty a Czech BFF to entice him to take a hometown discount. Sekera is still pretty young at 27 also.

No plan. No patience. No concept on how to manage a draft. It really doesn't make me happy that they continue to mess up. I'd really like it to stop, but I see no reason to think that JR will spontaneously change the way he does things.

It's got to stop if we're going to get better, but it won't as long as JR is in charge.

I'm not in love with the trade but adding Sekera just doubled our backend hockey IQ. We didn't get any more physical but we did add a guy who will be able to get it out of his own zone. I hope Sekera is only D piece move number 1 but I fear it isn't

Honestly, we could have done much worse for a top 4 defenseman.

I hope we win the Cup in 2-3 seasons, if not we are in for one monster of a re-build. Our prospect cupboard is getting more and more bare by the minute.

Guess Buffalo knew McBain was on the outs and wouldn't budge off our second round pick if they knew JR was targeting Sekera.

Yeah. I should refrain from posting right when it happens. I'm really warming up to this trade.

Based on the reactions here I may undervalue Sekera, so I'll be happy to be proven wrong, but right now it's still not sitting right with me.

Idk how to feel about it with Fucale on the board. If he was off the board I would definitely like it but a potential future star goaltender and you trade the pick away. There's no guarantee we even take Fucale but would of liked to

Rutherford said he believes McBain will turn his game around but said he came to camp not ready to play, got in coach's doghouse.

Andrej Sekera was the player Carolina was after in pre-draft discussions with Buffalo over flipping picks in the 1st.

Except for that Sekera is Slovakian

Why would we get back into the second? If there was somebody we wanted, we'd have taken him at No. 35 instead of making a crappy trade.

#Canes GM Jim Rutherford said Sekera was who CAR wanted to swap picks with BUF in the first round.

Michael Smith ‏@MSmithCanes
Turned out that the team kept the pick, drafted the player they wanted and eventually got Sekera anyway.

Looks like things worked out.
