Andrew Alberts needs to stay. I have no idea why Tripp decided to take him to task last game as a player that has been struggling, but it's simply not true. I suppose it was to deflect blame from his "buddies" on the squad, but he's been playing some of the best hockey on our blueline, as sad as that reality has to be.

Alberts has been the only signing we made that has turned out to be exactly what I expected and hoped for.

Perhaps and I don't disagree that he will remain a Cane. But he still has value to some teams so he's not considered a salary dump per se, but he certainly wouldn't bring in much value. Unlike the contracts/play of Brindy, Wallin, Yelle... other might have interest in Cole. I'm not syaing it's realistic but I'm saying he should be for sale and some teams might want him. That's why I put him there.

So, unmovable:
Brind'Amour
Walker
Wallin
Yelle
Alberts
Kostopoulos

Cole
LaRose
I haven't seen tons of games this year, mostly due to time zone differences but from what I've seen/ heard AA and TK have been decent. Dunno why we'd trade them when they fit their given roles for a very decent price.

I agree on Alberts, he's been perfect for the role in my opinion and his salary is perfect. All in all he's been someone I have been happy with all year long and like mentioned above, a signing that has turned out to be a nice addition. Perfect guy for the bottom pairing role and he's getting just the right amount of minutes, around 15-16 on average.
