As a Canuckfan, one really does have mixed feelings on this subject.

On the one hand, you want to see Alberts get really schooled in his own zone (which likely happen if he's ever on the ice against the Wings better forwards) so maybe - just maybe AV would get his head out of his azz; on the other hand, as a Canuckfan - you want Alberts to play well.

Sad thing is, it shouldn't have come to this. Just play the best players available (either Ballard or Barker) - especially against a team like the Red Wings.

AV's stubborness is what will get him fired.
