Plus he has the advantage of already playing with the team and getting comfortable with the guys. By the time Bertuzzi is back who knows if he will mesh with the team. he certainly won't have much time to do it. Face it, he is a huge question mark.
I give you zetterberg. The other two are good role players but aren't impact players. Markov is a good dman but your blueline is still damn good without him. Detroit fans can try to twist it anyway they want to but the bottom line is the players that are out for us hurt us more than their injuries hurt them.
Now I'm not saying if we are healthy we would walk all over detroit. They could still beat us easily. They have a great team and if both tams were healthy and met in the Po's it would be a great series.
Both teams are hurting with injuries right now, and yet both teams still manage to win with them out. Hopefully everyone for both sides will be healthy the last time the teams meet, and Bertuzzi will be playing in that game. Return date is March 22.
Todd Bertuzzi will become a Griffin in preparation for making his debut with the Red Wings.
While the Wings head West to play Vancouver and Calgary over the coming week, Bertuzzi will head to Grand Rapids. That will allow Bertuzzi to continue practicing rather than skate on his own -- and it's also a sign of how close he is to returning. When his new teammates come home, Bertuzzi could play in the next game, March 22 against Columbus. And if not that day, then March 24 against St. Louis or March 26 against Anaheim.
"He'll definitely play somewhere during that home stand," general manager Ken Holland said Wednesday.
