Todd Bertuzzi. 2 goals, 7 assists in 7 games.
I've always liked the guy, and he's seriously becoming one of my favourite Wings. Like Mike said, his work defensively, his willingness to back check has been superb so far this season, the best I've ever seen in that regard. Loving the second line.
Let him go 2 games without a point, and we'll see a "Bertuzzi needs to go!!" thread pop up. :-p
Ahh, the fickle fickle life of fans.
I never didn't like him. He has ALWAYS, ALWAYS brought something to any team he has played for. He's streaky. He is not often the best defensively, but that dude has always been known for Game winning goals, and strong playoff performances.
He's the kind of player you can't always count on, but when you need him the most, he shows up.
The fact that he's leading our team in points, shows that our second line is genius. And as of last night, I'd qualify our first line as genius too.
Good thing we have Hudler, Modano, and Cleary to talk s*** about, until, ya know, Bert starts slumping again.
Makes me miss the old days, back in 97 when Wings fans weren't smart enough to figure out anything more than the announcers told us. Ah the glory days of ignorance and bliss
Bert is just doing what we brought him in years ago to do. Those of you who don't remember a younger Bert, before he played for the Wings, prior to his injuries he was an offensive force, and a physical force. A relatively notable one. He's been up and down for years, torn between having a natural skill for the game, and a body that has taken too much of a beating.
Glad he's felling well this year
