I'd argue that he's a saw off with Alberts. Alberts doesn't get enough credit from Canucks fans due to being buried on a deep back end. He's huge, mean, and plays a pretty tidy game. Yes, he has deficiencies...his offensive game is non existent and he's not the fleetest of foot...but he's a very solid bottom pairing guy. Much the same as O'Brien, who has a higher upside, but is also more mercurial and unreliable.
