Much the same as O'Brien, who has a higher upside, but is also more mercurial and unreliable.
Agreed. imo, SOB and Alberts are virtually the same player. The only difference is that SOB shows his emotions out on the ice, which makes him more noticeable amongst fans and the media. Alberts quietly does his job without being noticed. That play where Hossa protects the puck from Alberts to set up the GWG in game 6, yeah SOB would have defended Hossa that exact same way.
