Very big "meh" on this one. While Bertuzzi might be a good fit offensively, I have questions about him defensively at this juncture.

I also think another thing to consider is this team's reputation with officials. I mean, we all like to complain about how we're treated unfairly, but the fact is that we have a reputation which is naturally going to jade officials against us. Then you add in that we've brought in Laperriere and 2 fighters in OKT and Carcillo within the past 6 months plus Pronger.

If we signed Bertuzzi, we're going to be a team that would ice Asham, Pronger, Hartnell, Bertuzzi, Carcillo, Emery, and Laperriere on a nightly basis with the possibility of Cote and OKT as well.

Do you guys think we're getting any kind of breaks from officials with that kind of lineup? Like it or not, that's something that has to be considered especially considering that at best, we're an average ES team.
