In Topic: Bertuzzi in, Jurco out

Today, 01:49 PM

Well its a +0.25 PPG upgrade over what Jurco has produced this postseason. Sometimes a team as good as Boston will force you to play their game - a game that Bertuzzi is better suited for than Jurco.

If you mean by their game soft as marshmallows? Then yes, he plays their game.

So how does everyone feel about Todd Bertuzzi tonight?

 

WOW - are you guys kidding me? Have you not watched or understood our offensive struggles this entire series?

 

Between our constant turnovers, abysmal forecheck, and lack of any sort of net front presence (see our PP%) our team - for the first time in a long time - has looked VERY young. Quite simply, our roster in games 2/3 (w/o Alfreddson who does make a difference) cannot compete with the Bruins. I understand Jurco is a very quick and talented player, but quickness and talent wont translate into offensive success when your chasing the cycle around each shift. Bertuzzi immediately helps the forecheck, immediately helps the PP and most importantly provides a veteran presence to this line of youngsters.

 

I know he is not the saviour (I think we already know who that is) but I'm wondering why people who have watched this team play all series, are upset about this change. You can't remove any of the penalty killers and you aren't taking Legwand out... I hope Bert destroys Marchand tonight and finally earns us some respect (just count the cheapshots),

 

Yeah, a guy who had a .25 ppg will be the spark plug this team needs

Call up Jarnkrok, he's been great.... Oh wait.

 

Seriously though this team can not win with players like Helm, Abdelkader, Bertuzzi, Franzen, etc occupying top line spots. Helm and Abby are both good players, but Babcock has been trying to use them in roles they don't have the talent to fill. As for Bertuzzi and Franzen? Package them for a 7th and a bag of pucks and hope that the other GM doesn't figure out he got fleeced.

Dear Babcock:
Remember those lines that you had when the Wings were pretty much unbeatable? Yeah those would be great about now.
Love,

Wings Nation.

The refs are out of breath after all those early whistles. Now they can't blow it at all

The refs blow by nature though.
