I know you're being sarcastic, but my impression overall is that most people weren't against Bertuzzi as much as Cleary and Samuelsson. Bertuzzi is extremely streaky, but when healthy, he's a big body with good hands that can still be a valuable asset to the Red Wings. Done a nice job creating space and going to the front of the net for the Euro Twins so far.
It's more of a knock on the general anti-veteran sentiment that's been pervasive since Cleary resigned. I agree with you about Bert though.
