Could be worse. Could be Dave Nonis and all those picks he gave away for players who didn't have NHL careers after they bombed on the Canucks (think Carney might the exception).

As much as I would prefer Alberts not be on the roster - not even only in a depth role; on a bad NHL team, he'd be a #6. Stiffs like Weinrich (sp?) were good for the AHL (maybe not even that) when Nonis traded for him.
