Good signing, solid depth defenseman in a sortened season where injuries could be key. Also correct me if Im wrong, but because his cap hit is $700,000 if he were to go to the minors under the new CBA his salary wouldnt count against the cap as contracts of $900,000 or less dont?
If thats the case then no risk for us if he makes the team, great but if he bombs we can just send him to the minors with no salary cap complications.
Which leads to the question of what the Canucks will do with Alberts as his salary is 1.1 mil I believe and would count against the cap if he were in the minors. Or maybe with the Canucks bad luck with defenseman and injuries they will need them all.
