Bertuzzi a smart player who doesn't take costly penalties? OK, so he was smart last night, *for once*. Give the man a prize. 60% of his penalties are of the pointless, boneheaded type.

I like Bert as much as any other Nuck fan, but I still recognize his flaws.

Great post. Echoes my thoughts exactly. I think too many Canucks fans put Bertuzzi on a pedestal. Yes he's one of the most dominating players in the NHL, but he takes a lot of stupid penalties, which cost the Canucks at times.
