Alberts is perfect for the 6th spot.
Rome I like as the 7th/8th dman.
Salo will get injured eventually and McCabe would take is ice time, but on the 3rd pairing.
Tanev performed quite well last season and during his brief stint in the playoffs. He also managed to develop good chemistry with Ballard. He can learn from the other seven guys.
If Alberts fits perfectly, then where is Ballard? What, we're paying him four million again just to get Gatorade? That has to be it because you cannot possibly be suggesting Ballard and McCabe line up as our third pairing. Great, makes the Grabner trade look even better...
How about we try using the other seven guys we have first, and for the powerplay, Samulsson. We can always sign someone, if Salo gets injured.
If we dump Rome or Alberts, sure sign McCabe but until then this seems wholly unnecessary, unless he is a clear upgrade, which is certainly not the case.
