I don't know.  Bert hasn't played at all.  No way he's up to a game speed level anywhere close to where the active players are. 

 

I'm not strictly against it but I'd definitely be concerned.

LOL at those thinking cleary will sit. still had powerplay time last night after the 2 boneheaded penalties.

 

Nyquist will get scratched before cleary does

Yes!  We need Bert back.  He will help immediately.  Put him with Flip and Franzen and move Cleary to the 4th.  I'm thinking that will happen.

Last night that line, especially Abby, played very well. I think Bert should take Cleary's spot on the second line for at least one game before the top line is split.

Bertuzzi won't be in game shape. That worries me. He'd have to start on the 4th line to minimize his minutes. I'd almost rather he wait til playoffs. Then again, we need his puck control.

He'd be a huge boost. But none of the kids should sit, Cleary/Eaves/Tootoo would be the ones to sit. Somethings off with Toots lately, he hasn't been playing a hard physical brand. So to me it wouldn't even be a question, yes monitor his minutes, but Bert will bring alot to the line-up that we're missing.

It will probably be this, but maybe with Bert and Brunner switched. Brunner and Nyquist played really well together last night. We lose Eaves penalty killing, but I think they'll want tootoo against the physical Kings

He's been practicing for weeks now.

I want Bert back in the lineup sooo bad. I'd be very happy to have him in against the Kings. Cleary should sit but that seems like wishful thinking
