Tyler Bertuzzi

Corey Pronman @coreypronman
DET selects Bertuzzi. Small guy but plays with energy, can kill penalties and has some skill to his game.

Quote:
“He brings that element, and we felt like we wanted to add a player like that into our mix of prospects,” said Red Wings scout Jeff Finley. “A lot of times what happens is you like those guys, but they go a lot earlier than you were planning to take them. We just thought, instead of taking a chance that he’s not there in the third round, we had an extra pick in the second, and we didn’t mind him there where we took him.”

“He’s got something you can’t teach in terms of his fearless approach to the game and he plays bigger than he is,” said Ryan Martin, the Red Wings assistant general manager of hockey administration. “He’s an energy guy who is willing to fight and plays that abrasive style.”

I guess he will fill a role? Even if it is 4th line pest?

I am trying to rationalize this

Feels like they had the wrong player highlighted in a fantasy league draft when time ran out or something.

There is no rationalizing in the 2nd round when a guy like Buchnevich is available

Not a very good pick but I love Todd so much that Tyler is already ok in my book.

Love this pick, he could be our Andrew Shaw but with some skill. These are the types they'll need to groom to be harder to play against.

Guess they loved him and worried he would get taken? Only rational explanation.

This kid is Andrew Shaw who can't fight, score, skate or check.

He makes Andrew Shaw looks like a Lady Byng winner. I guess that's something.

One of Kenny's worst picks in recent memory. Embarrassingly bad.

Bob McKenzie said something like: "Tyler Bertuzzi puts Andrew Shaw look like a Lady Byng winner."

We are going get bigger, stronger and nastier to play against with these picks.

Wasn't that what almost everybody has been rooting here for? Three big/strong/nasty canadians.

I just think they could've drafted him later. He's a 4th liner at best. They lack center depth but go for bottom 6 wingers?

We'll see how they pan out, but my initial reaction is, below average 2nd round. Let's see what happens in the later rounds.

For that reason only, I like.

It's not like he is Zetterberg or Datsyuk and playing thousands of miles away and no one else saw him.

He's playing in Canada and everyone else knew he sucks which is why he was ranked #207 among NA skaters. Such a bad pick. Hard for me to believe that actually happened, as a matter or fact.

Love this kid. Love him. He's the type of guy we don't have enough of in our system.

I am sure alot of people will rag on the pick, but I am also sure those same people have never seen the kid play.

Comparisons to shaw are funny. Better scrapper and could easily develop into a better checking line/pk'er.

First time I've been happy with holland in a while.

Still, this is just an extra gamble. They traded down to get this extra pick and still got Mantha at 1st round.

Yeah, his skill level makes Andrew Shaw look like Pavel Datsyuk
