I hate the way he makes tape to tape passes to open players on the other side of an empty net on the powerplay. Jeez, watch a beginners video will ya! You're supposed to shoot the puck at the net when you are that close to the goalie at an impossible angle. WTF IS WRONG WITH HIM!!!

It still would be nice to have that one guy.

Here we go again... Bertuzzi not scoring and the Wings not winning, blame it on the $1.5 mil guy.

I blame Al Sobotka.
Thank You TeeMan

yea that totally sucks, I also hate when he uses his size to hold a player off with one hand while controlling the puck with a free hand... just awful. He should be skating with a puck really fast as opposed to being slow like he is only to fall behind the net and let the opposition get it.... that's how things get done in the wings organization...

This just in, Bertuzzi kicks babies and pushes old ladies in the middle of the crosswalk.

*shrugs*






Yes, that was sarcasm that went very bad.

The only reason he's being criticized is because the role that he got became larger than it should have based off of the injuries. So when he makes a lazy or stupid play it's magnified because he's playing with and against all of the high-end talent. He's one of the guys who should be up and down between the second and third line (like Samuelsson was). He's good for that.

The fact that he was capable of playing top line minutes and scoring was an added bonus for a 1.5m dollar player. You can't expect everything about his game to be perfect. He's not expected to be a superstar anymore.

Todd Bertuzzi hasn't scored in 18 games.

But Babs says:

“No. 1 priority, don’t worry about scoring goals. Forecheck, be physical, and when you get the puck, take it to the net and if you get a chance, shoot it. Look after all your defensive responsibilities, take care of the puck, and everything will work out just fine. If you start worrying about scoring goals, that’s not going to happen. So just play."

Bert clearly has succumbed too much into Detroit's finesse game. He fails to shoot on blatant scoring chances, sends blind passes to the open wing, and gets separated from the puck far too easily.

Bertuzzi just needs to simplify his game. He must accept that he's not some cog on an energetic checking line. He's got to take it upon himself to be the Go-To guy on his line... shoot more ala Samuelsson. gawd I can't believe I'm saying this. *gasp*

Today he passed up a glourious chance...as expected, when you don't score for a while, you lose confidence in your shot.
Mixed feelings about this

I think he has some skill and ability to set up plays but maybe he should just think shoot first.

Not that I agree. I just thought I'd bring it up again before someone else started a new thread.

What I don't understand about him is that, he plays like a 50+ goal scorer for about a week or two. Then, it seems like he feels that he has played up to his value, and doesn't try as hard. How the hell do you go from scoring two consecutive OT game winners, to not scoring in 18+ games (I think that's where he's at now). There is either something wrong with him physically, or he just doesn't have heart. I know there is a good player in Bertuzzi, but what does he need to keep playing up to what he was earlier in the season? I honestly don't think it was because Dats was on his line either. He had a different intensity about his game, which he doesn't have at this point, or during the beginning of the season.

He doesn't seem to be as strong on the puck lately. I wouldn't be surprised if his back started bothering him again.

He kind of is already isn't he?

He's not in the top-six. He shouldn't ruin the DHE line. He's on the line he's on by default.

It's just that he got 14 minutes last night while Helm, Eaves and Miller got less than 12 each. Babs just needs to play the DHE line as the third line and give that line more minutes.

He's got lot's of holes in his game. He's not alone unfortunately.


Welcome to the playoffs....where the games get better and the officiating gets worse.

Finally broke his goalless streak.

He was +1 with one giveaway and one goal in 18:31 TOI.

It might be a good idea for Babs to rotate Bert and Cleary on the 2nd line. Maybe Miller can be in that rotation as well. If one starts to get too comfortable and their play falls off, switch them up.
