Sure, he occasionally remembers how big he is and drives the net or mucks it up in the corners, but he generally tries much harder to be Pavel Datsyuk than Milan Lucic out there. I know we are hurting for size in the top 6 and I hope KH FINALLY tries to address that, but Bert just doesn't play an effective big man game despite his size.

Granted, the dude can scowl and curse out an opponent in a scrum like no other, but that's about as far as any intimidation may go.
Honestly Who do we have on the team who is "BIG"

Franzen (doesn't throw alot of hits, he has a great shot, he is more of a sniper than a hitter)
Bertuzzi (Again plays more a finesse game than a hitter)
Abdelkader (He throws hits, he is the guy we are talking about, uses his size to wreak havoc)
Samuelsson (Finesse shooter, doesn't play with size)
Tootoo (Small guy, plays like a HUGE guy) - Love him, he should spend less time fighting and more time drawing penalties
