The guy was just godawful when he was put in the lineup this postseason (and 2010 playoffs as well), and to me is a league minimum player if he’s kept around. Shouldn’t be more than a one-year deal, either.
When Salo is signed, this means we have 7 guys on one-way deals plus Tanev. Not exactly a lot of room there for upgrades.
Defensive version of Tanner Glass? lol ouch. That's harsh. I disagree though.
Alberts doesn't run around in his own zone as much as Rome. And on occasion, will make a pass up the ice, instead of chipping it off the glass. I thought he played pretty well in the playoffs for being a depth guy.
I don't understand the hate.
To Bobby Lu: Any free agent option for a 6/7th dman would have cost more. This way, you solidify a depth spot on the cheap, so you are able to spend more for and FA option that you like. Hejda will get 3m. Hannan might get 2m. And Montador can still be brought in.
