Andrew Alberts Specs (from a Bruins observer)

Hey guys, Bruins fan here...

Just thought we could share some info on the two players that were dealt for one another.

Alberts is a big boy that was brought along to be that solid stay-home defenseman ala Sean O'Donnel. Only bigger and a more fluid skater. Alberts has really gone downhill though over the last year or so after his injury (thanks Hartnel!). He's been a liability defensively and made a lot of mistakes, in turn being replaced by Shane Hnidy.

However, he is still young and still has the potential. I'd imagine Alberts could benefit from a new scene and the Flyers are obviously thinking the same. Hope he does well (against every other team then the B's)...I know he has a big fan following on the Bruins board.

So what's the deal with Ned Lukacevic? I saw he spent time in the ECHL. Maybe dealing Alberts was just a salary dump for the Bruins. Anything you guys can share?
