I believe in the end its a simple, simple game; no different than my two youngest fightin in the living room; you draw a line in the sand, and you decide who wants the ball more. And that's what hockey's about. - Babblecock

I always liked Bert as a Wing. I was happy when we signed him again because I had a real good feeling that on his end, he signed because he knew leaving was a mistake. Translation: he wouldn't be taking this for granted. He proved it last year and he's proving it even more this year. No better place than Detroit to find redemption and I hope he wins a Cup here. You can tell he's playing for that Cup, maybe this year even more than last. I love the effort he's made and I couldn't be happier to have him as a Wing.

I agree. He really wants to win this year. I think he did last year, too, but he was still getting over nagging injuries and finding his groove. Now he's healthy for the first time in a long time and he's an established part of this team. I hope he stays as long as he can.

Dear Dirty Bert,

i'm sorry for saying mean things about you in the past. i was wrong. i'm also sorry for sandwiching your name in between a barrage of profanity. i didn't realize that sloppy passes, turn overs, and stupid penalties was just your way of warming up to awesome. i hope you'll forgive me someday.

Bert has had his rough years for sure. I really have respected seeing him change his play a lot from last year. This year he has transformed himself into the ultimate team-player! and it is having a huge positive impact on the wings that play with him! He has been doing well on every line he has had to play on and with any of the players he has had to play with.

It is obvious how much he enjoys the Detroit environment and why he has worked so hard to buy into the team structure and style.

And he's become really defensively reliable. I'm loving Bertuzzi on this team.

At least he didn't get called for the high stick to Franzen. That's a plus.

He more than doubled his PIM total in one game, and if that happens 20 games into the season than that's telling me he hasn't been taking very many penalties.

It probably helps that the "one hand on the stick the other taking a penalty" syndrome seems to have been remedied.

Ya... It's actually a little harder to spot him on the ice anymore. He blends in with the rest of the players with two hands on their stick. :)

This.

Bertuzzi has been fantastic this year, it seems he is really buying into the system, and getting very comfortable in his role. He is not floating in the defensive zone, and is playing a very solid 2-way game. You can tell that he is happy on this team, and he is motivated to win. I hope he can stay healthy and make an impact that he is capable of when it gets down to the nitty gritty.

Yes.

While he will never be the Toddzilla of '02, he is proving to be quite a valueable Red Wing and a helluva bargain.
