Solid player; we'll miss him. Anyone know much about McBain? (Other than the fact that he finally got Mendoza.)

McBain is similar to Sekera... Quick, good with puck, decent shot, not overly physical. He was a stud with Wisconsin, had a few good years in Carolina, then fell apart last year.

Dreger implies that Carolina wanted Sekera and 8 for 5th. I think I would have preferred that.

If that was the trade and we didn't do it, EVERYONE should be fired.

Rutherford said Canes offered fifth pick and McBain to Sabres for Sekera and No. 8.

I have a hard time picturing that as the kind of deal that would be made in the top ten of any draft. Seems like a bit of gamesmanship from Rutherford.

Rutherford says can see Sekera, who has 2 yrs left on contract, being paired with Gleason.

Sekera was simply the odd man out with all of the youngsters moving in. Not sure why we wanted McBain though (?).

McBain was out of shape last season. He wasn't worth giving up the 8th pick for.

If thats true then Regier keeps making himself look more and more like the NHL version of Cleveland from Family Guy every minute.."Yeh my wife cheated on me and i told her it was my fault"....

I wouldve been happy with Sekera and the eight for Carolinas pick in the first rd...Sekera was too cold most of the time..He had his moments but his mistakes and games of nonexistence greatly outweighed his worth

So the Sabres are definitely run by complete idiots if this is true, right?

If what Rutheford said is true then this has gone too far. It's gotten to the point of corruption and intentional destruction of this franchise.

It doesn't really make much sense, but basically Darcy preferred having an extra second rounder over moving up 3 spots. I guess I don't care because it sounds like even if they moved up to #5 they would have went for defense. Or Lindholm tho.

Comes down to whether Darcy valued Lindholm as greater than Risto (or whatever he thought would be available at 8) + Sekera. Obviously he didn't.

I think Darcy would have taken Nurse if they moved to #5. But either way yeah, he probably didn't deem the difference between Risto/Nurse/Lind as that big, so I guess it's a good deal to get an extra second round pick.

Yet he was willing to deal Sekera for McBain (who from what I know isn't anywhere near Sekera's class as far as lock-down ability goes) and a prospect with a ~20% chance of making the NHL? Ugh. Speechless if this is true.
