I wish I could have seen it, and I wish that there was video from last nights tilt, but the report on TSN and other things I've read, state that Bert took exception to the kneeing on Franzen from Orpik and got a 5 for fighting and a 10 minute misconduct for instantly jumping on him...

If this is the Bert we will see this year, I am ECSTATIC - I don't want him dropping the gloves just to fight, I just want him to play with that snarl that he is capable of when he chooses to, finishing checks, standing up for teammates and just being physical on the opposition... if that ends up being the Bert we see this year, his re-signing will be HUGE

Good. Wish I could have seen it.

He really seems to enjoy being on a line with Franzen. They started working well together last year late in the playoffs, and they seemed to have fun passing back and forth through training camp. Now we hear Burt pummeling Orpik for kneeing Franzen.

Bert needs to show that kind of toughness this year.

Even if Bert never drops the gloves again this season, the fact that he stood up for a teammate (and apparently beat the living piss out of the guy) should put the fear in opponents for the foreseeable future, no one wants to be on the receiving end of another Steve Moore incident. Either way, I really hope this is a glimpse of a meaner, more aggressive Bert this year, we desperately need that kind of presence. If nothing else then to give him a few free passes for the inevitable bonehead plays, no-look drop passes into space, one-hand-on-the-stick giveaways, bad penalties that we have come to know and loathe from him.

I know you're kinda being silly, but that would be great for our team... they could both have a great impact on one another and that line could be HUGE with Fil feeding them the puck and those 2 shooting... they appear to have developed a pretty good friendship and that's a great sign for line chemistry...

I expect to see some really good stuff from Bert and Mule on a line this year. They really seemed to click during game 4 of the Shark series resulting in an epic night for Franz. It would be an added bonus if Bert steps up and pounds on guys from time to time, like in this case.

Mule and Bert really do show promise together, and their combination excites me greatly. Hopefully they can bring out each other's physical edge and scoring drive.

Bert is a beast. Before the incident with Moore, Bert was considered a very gritty, tough forward who could punish you. I think the Moore incident made him gun-shy and hopefully he is finally returning to the earlier badass Bert :thumbup:

So isn't a knee-on-knee a big no-no now with the new rules and all? Orpik was kicked out of the game for it right? Is there going to be any kind of league discipline for Orpik? Should I asked more questions? ? ? ?

It is interesting to see what the outcome will be... It was the Pens that broke the rule after all. :ph34r:

Aww, I love a good bromance! Ahem, anyway, after this year's lines were announced, I couldn't help but think about whether it'd be better to have Homer or Franzen on the 1st line (off-season ponderings, you know how it goes). Since they're both worthy, I couldn't decide, but if Mule and Bert are going to work together so well, then great! Keep 'em on the same line! Whew, now I don't have to think about it anymore, heh.

On the subject of Bert, I agree with the OP. I don't necessarily want him to start fighting a lot; I'd just like to see him play with a little extra RAWR in his step and take care of business when business really needs to be taken care of, such as yesterday. Good job, Bert!
