Andrej Sekera

Andrej Sekera was acquired in a draft day deal from the Buffalo Sabres. The trade sent Jamie McBain and the 35th overall pick in that draft to Buffalo.

So far, the Carolina Hurricanes have to taken the win for that trade, no doubt. Andrej Sekera won’t blow you away with a single aspect of his game, but he is good everywhere.

He plays with Justin Faulk as a top 2 defenseman for the Hurricanes, he plays on the powerplay, and he kills penalties. I love the addition of Sekera. He brings alot of good things to the Hurricane blue line.

He plays very well in his own end, he moves the puck well, and he is a great skater.

He does make mistakes, and he does have his off games, but so does every other player in the NHL. He has played very well.

Grade : A-

    I agree with all of your ratings except the Stahl brothers. First Eric – I am not sure why he is the captain. I can’t say I have seen another player who pouts as much as Eric. He misses a shot or gets beat and he skates off like a whipped puppy. His leadership is spotty at best. Grade C+. One simple question for Jordan Stahl – At $6M, is he significantly better than Brandon Sutter? Absolutely not, grade D.

    Also, what about a grade for the coaching staff? PK – OK, PP – ugly. And does anyone train the goalies? Seriously, three years in a row with lower body (aka groin) injuries. Somebody needs to train the goalies so they can stretch like Gumby. Grade C-
