As I said when you see the talent he has, you wonder how come he's scored only 2 goals.
does not shoot enough and is too much of a playmaker. also not physical enough, so...
"not aggressive enough"
bertuzzi also was not on PP much earlier in the season. bertuzzi and cleary have been splitting the last spot on PP.
PPTOI per game

Who else on the current roster makes for a better realistic linemate for Datsyuk right now? Are you going to break up the Z-Fil-Huds line? No. Are you going to move Miller to Datsyuk's wing full time? Gosh, I sure hope not. My point is that Bert is the best linemate available and he is playing well.
Plus, he does still have those sick shootout skills!
bertuzzi is playing well on the boards, shielding the puck, making nice passes and getting to net.
cleary has never played well with datsyuk, imo. not as good a passer, holds the puck too much and gets trapped too often on boards.
