I feel Jorde should make this team. With Mckee gone for now, i think the sabres have the least physical D in the League. Jorde is not only physical, but he is willing to drop the gloves too.
Mckee will sign and there are far too many guys ahead of Jorde in the depth chart. Buffalo is stacked at D with a whole bunch of mediocre talent past the top 3-4 (Zhitnik, Mckee, Kalinin, possibly Tallinder on this list).
After those guys you have a whole bunch of OK players: Campbell, Bouchard, Fitzpatrick, Patrick, Delmore (stellar scorer but atrocious defender)...and the list goes on and on (okay, so it actually doesn't).
Jorde just gets lost in the mix behind these guys and may not even have attained their level of mediocrity yet. He's still got a lot to learn at the AHL level.
