Yeah, it's really tough beat to take his 6'3 230lbs body out from there and send those kids to fight with "Prongers" in the corners. Everyone will want Sammy and Bertuzzi way from there and hate Franzen. Take those guys away and we have a total TOP9 with 5'11 forwards. I understand if you are a midget league fan, but not NHL fan.

Before we can replace Bertuzzi with some other big-bodied power-player like Riley Sheahan, he definitely deserves to be there.

Nyquist and Tatar will battle against guys like Cleary, Eaves and Filppula to get the roster spot and ice-time. They have kind of same tools.
