We, the undersigned, do hereby state our dismay at the recent ejection of Andrew Alberts from Game 1 of the Vancouver Canucks/ Los Angeles Kings playoff series. Alberts clearly boarded Brad Richardson during the 2nd period, and we do not deny that. But we do not feel Alberts deserved to be ejected. Alberts is a difference maker for the Vancouver Canucks and was far too important to the outcome of the game to eject him. Even more egregious would be to suspend him from future games in this series. For the good of
the Vancouver Canucks, the Los Angeles Kings, the National Hockey League, and the human race, Andrew Alberts must be allowed to play in the next game.
