HE will have a fantastic year as long as he stays healthy. He is also signed through next year correct?


Yes. He signed a 2 year deal this offseason.

Last year, when he and Franzen played together in game 7 against Phoenix and the two just dominated I saw potential. The two have some chemistry that should really propel that second line. I'm happy to see Bert getting some confidence in his game and playing well again.

Hmm I feel like I should dig up some threads of people hating the signing last year and I was one of the few that actually thought he would play well...

But yeah, I love Bertuzzi on this team, he's a different player after his injury and he's not as physical, but he still uses his size very well and can create a lot of space. He's getting his feet back too, I just hope he can stay healthy.

He's got a surprising amount of speed at times.

In any event, as Mike Haynes (the absolute homer PbPer for the Avalanche) said last season, "Say what you will about Bertuzzi [as relates to the Moore incident], but he is a BIG man."

I'm sure that stat will soon blossom, but as long as his point totals continue to do so, I'll be satisfied.

Good on Big Bert for real, when he came here the first time I was stoked because he has always been one of the players I wish was on our team. &nbsp; He was a stud with Vancouver, I mean he was big, great shot, great passer and had incredible moves, let alone pulling those moves at his size! &nbsp;So I'm glad he found that level again, some argued he was done and some new it was still there...Im just grateful he proved it here! &nbsp;Good on you Bert&nbsp;<img src="http://www.letsgowin...lt/thumbup.gif" alt=":thumbup:" class="bbc_emoticon">

I've always liked Bert even when he played with the Nucks.. I was more than on board when I heard when the Wings signed him the first time... It's good to see him playing well and my Bert man crush is stronger than ever.. Keep it up #44, in Todd we trust

If things continue all season for The Todd as they have thus far....he and his beard will only be rivaled by that of Chuck Norris.

I've been a fan of The Todd since the '02 playoffs. He was an absolute beast! He was one of the players that I loved to hate, because he was so good. I never imagined I'd see that big #44 in red and white but am thrilled about it! So glad he was re-signed for a couple more years.

I was actually at his first game playing as a Wing a few years ago against Columbus (shootout loss :() when they picked him up at the trade deadline.

Who would have thought last year Bertuzzi would be one of only 3 Red Wings to play all 82 games???

Great to see him playing so well. Far different player from the guy the Wings picked up at the deadline in 07.
Red Kelly #4 and Larry Aurie #6 belong in the rafters!!!

I'll admit that when he signed the contract last summer I wasn't ecstatic. But I have to give Bert some props here as one of my major knocks against him was his defensive side. Leading the team with a +13 is very nice, not to mention the 14 pts in 16 games.

So my hats off to you Bert. May you keep it up.

Cheers!

He's doing very well across the board.
