He was glad that Todd Bertuzzi stepped in and pounded Orpik.

“I didn’t see it, but I heard (about) it,'' Franzen said. "I thanked him after.’’

Said Babcock: "That was great. That’s what you got to do. We’re all in together here and Bert did a good job. Too bad he missed the whole game. Suddenly, we had no Mule and no Bert and we were a little short.’’

Bertuzzi believes a message needed to be sent.


Your teammates are kind of your brotherhood and you stick up for each other,'' Bertuzzi said. "Stuff like that has to be attended to. I think anyone else would have done the same thing.’’


Bert speaks the truth.

Hope Bert or someone does it again.


If it was true that he didn't want to fight because of what he did to Moore (?!), maybe now he'll realize it's OK to flail away for your friends... That serious injury isn't necessarily a part of such defensible action.

"He even ate with women who at that time were accorded the same status as the family donkey. Are we willing to break bread with, say, child sex slaves, transgender teens and undocumented workers? Because when Jesus comes back to Earth, that's where he'll be hanging."
You can easily judge the character of a man by how he treats those who can do nothing for him.

The Moore incident was an unfortunate and freak thing... he didn't mean to break the guys neck I'm sure. Wanted payback for sure but not like that.

Bert doesn't have to worry about another Moore incident here. None of the other Wings will jump on whomever Bert fights after the guy is down.

Good for Bert standing up for Mule. Hopefully that sense of "brotherhood" is contagious.

This was just what this team needed. Way to go Bert! I hope that this " Mess with one and you mess with us all " attitude will continue. I feel that this has been missing for a long time on this team.

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? ? ? ?

then he and the Penguins organization engaged in deep tongue-kissing..."

I don't believe the game was televised. Only video I saw of the game was from what I am guessing is a cell phone camera. It wasn't of this incident though.

I agree with this. I did even when it happened. There are very few players who are really consistently vicious out there. Or consistently stupid. Whichever comes first. :)

"He even ate with women who at that time were accorded the same status as the family donkey. Are we willing to break bread with, say, child sex slaves, transgender teens and undocumented workers? Because when Jesus comes back to Earth, that's where he'll be hanging."

I have a friend who is a Flyers fan; we always talk on hockey-related matters. We agreed that while Orpik most certainly deserves a suspension for doing such a dangerous and irresponsible thing in a preseason game, we also agreed that there was a major mitigating circumstance: namely, that he's a member of the Penguins.

Sad but true.

Just to make a point off of what a few of you touched on. I really think Bert went through some emotional s*** after that Moore incident. Lets face it- even if you are a badass, you have to feel terrible about being involved in ending someone's career and almost his life. Bert was villianized for a few years later and I think the league also watched him like a hawk, making him out to be the "blind hit assasin". It DID affect his physical presense...how could going through something like that not effect you?
That being said, he has played clean, done his pentance with the league and now he is probably feeling like he can utilize his size and physical game again. Its an aspect of his game that makes him an asset. Good to see Bert going back to the kind of hockey player he can be at his age. I like Bert in Detroit and supported his return but my respect level just went up a notch or two.
Thumbs up Big Bert

It was kind of easy for me to look past the Moore incident when he came to the Wings, although I'm obviously biased. Maybe I'm also an intrinsically bad person.

By the way, who is that in your avatar?

I would love for him to get back to his pre-Moore toughness.
