Serious question here! Am I the only one one that thinks Big Bert should be in the top six pretty regularly? I have always felt a lot of Bert hate around here but I frigging love the snarl he brings.
I'm not always the biggest Bert fan, but I think he protects the puck in a way that no one else can on this team (one-handed, uses his size, etc.)
After Alfie, he would be one of those UFA vets I wouldn't mind being brought back next year, possibly... but it stops there. *glares at Samuelsson and Cleary*
The most popular choice among the Red Wings as to who would volunteer to play goalie – several Panthers did in their game – was Brendan Smith.
"He's pretty competitive and he seems to be good at everything," Justin Abdelkader said. "He'd volunteer himself."
Babcock was a bit more hesitant about Smith. "Yeah, yeah, just work on getting out of your zone," Babcock said
