Probably because your profession, especially one in which you are contracted to play for millions should take precedence over pretty much every form of off ice entertainment.

Thats the definition of maturity.

And as a leader he should be leading his team to un-crumminess. As JSG alluded to the opposite is happening.

**** guys give up family time to play.

Not more physical
Not a better skater
Not more offensive
Doesn't throw as big of hits
Isn't as dedicated
Isn't 6'5 and ripped as Alberts

...defensive awareness is one thing, but even then he's not that good hence bouncing around from team to team and being scratched from the worst team in the league

Glad we got rid of that fat boy

Alberts gets and has gotten far more hate than he deserves.

For that to happen he would have had to have checked in at some point in his life.

Its amazing that posters on here have criticized the nucks for having a country club atmosphere under AV when the AVs are a perfect example of country club.

Im sure a lot of players want to do a lot of things. Unfortunately they sign a contract to the tune of millions that they have to fulfill.

Again maturity, bro.
