The Sabres’ defense has seen it’s share of troubles this year.
Tyler Myers was just recovering from a troubling slump when he was injured. Christian Ehrhoff has provided some points from the point, but hasn’t produced the efficiency that saw him earn the award for Best Defenseman on the Canucks the last two seasons. Marc-Andre Gragnani simply refuses to hit. Mike Weber hasn’t been able to get his skates on the ice, and when he did, he was hurt. The rock-sterady presence of Robyn Regehr is now a presence in the infirmary, as well.
All the while, Andrej Sekera has quietly been putting together one of the better seasons of the defense corps. It’s time to show him some due respect.
Last season, I tried to call attention to Mike Weber’s stellar play on “buffalo74,” and called it the “Mike Weber Watch.” This year, it’s Andrej’s turn.
