Bert has very good playmaking numbers at even strength, while being more of a front of the net goal scorer on the powerplay.
I wouldn't want Todd Bertuzzi to play 2nd line minutes at ES, even in the ATD. Perhaps his skillset is more appropriate, but his peak years are too shallow in the ATD context and he would be a inconsistent contributor to this line. The more I think about it, the more I would stick with the Starshinov - Mayorov duo.
