I liked him at the NHL level but he doesn't show that he'll ever be a magnificent goal scorer to me like he is in the AHL. (IMO)
Its nice to see that highlight reel though, where he scored 3 different kinds of goals. Also nice to see that he can score when it matters.
Bertuzzi is a surprise for me. He's from my hometown and I was upset when we drafted him so early. Hes injury prone, but he's just been getting twice as good each and every season.
Its a little early to be saying that he can't show that he has the goal scoring ability in the NHL. He is going to get his opportunity to showcase his skills, and most rookies don't figure things out that quickly in the NHL.
As for Bert, I really love the spark he has given this team. He didn't play the first two games of the Toronto series, so Blashill puts him in and they start winning. This guy is playing for a roster spot next season and it shows with his desire and passionate play. I love it.
