Are there lots of guys on our roster, or in the league for that matter, who have the same size as Bert with more talent and work ethic. As a matter of fact where does this belief that he's not talented or doesn't work hard come from? I can recall multiple interviews in which Babcock lauds Bertuzzi's work ethic.
Bert might have a good work ethic, but so did Chelios, and just like Chelios - Bert is on his last legs (at least in my opinion), and as GMR has already mentioned - if ya can't get anything more than 38 pts on a top Red Wings line - well that's not saying much.
Want my bloody honest opinion?.....I'd rather have that lil'nutty bastard Tootoo out there instead of Bert, or Sammy...He's more physical than the other 2 combined, and he drives to the net like a street vagrant diving on a half-eaten Tim Horton's apple fritter.
