And we got him for cheap. Wer did not spend a top 5-10 pick on him, we spent Zhitnik

The bad thing is they thought they got that in Andrews, but he doesn't use his size at all

He's inconsistent but to say he doesn't at all is flat out incorrect.

The Flyers knew what they were getting. It's not like NHL 09 and they were like "OMG, a 6'3" guy, he is gonna wreck people" Homer knew what he was getting. Alberts is a big guy who does not make mistakes, and although not "physical" he is not "soft"

So I do not beleive that the Flyers beleived they were getting a physical d-man

I might have stated that wrong, but he does not make tons of mistakes. He is pretty solid. I would not call him a physical d-man.

But all d-men make mistakes, all players make mistakes, including Nic Lidstrom. As a 5/6- defenseman, he is not bad

hes by far the most physical defenseman we have.
