When Bertuzzi missed one game with the “flu” I believed it. But when it was two in a row, I started to get suspicious. Turns out I might have been right:
Bertuzzi hasn't been the same since being hit in the face by Devin Setoguchi's stick in the Oct. 29 game at Minnesota. He played the next two games, but it kept getting worse, so he has sat out the past two.
"Dizzy and lightheaded, just got a little swelling in my ears, got to get my balance back,'' Bertuzzi said. "I just didn't feel myself. I got a sinus infection, got my ears checked, got a little swelling in there.''

So if he’s got a sinus infection, then why did they mention that he wasn’t feeling that well after getting hit with a stick? To me that sounds like they are trying to imply he had a concussion? Strange.Anyways, he’ll miss the next two games as he tries to get over this dizzy spell. And for those two games, we’ll have a few less times on the PK. Plus we'll get another dose of Brunnstrom unless Eaves is magically feeling better.
Concussion is the new C word.
It's hard to say Bert has played especially bad this season when most of the team isn't scoring. And how could you hate everybody's favorite baby puncher?
Bertuzzi is by far my least favorite Wing. He is a penalty or turnover waiting to happen. I love that he isn't playing. I would rather see Brunnstrom or Eaves any day of the week. It's pretty bad when Helm and Abdelkader have more of a physical game than Big Bad Bert
anyone notice how we've won the past two games that bertuzzi has been out? those two facts might not be related but i chose to think they are. each game he sits is like a mini birthday party for me :)
@marti783 As a huge biased 'tuzzi fan, i boo you.
@moorecha lol honestly, what does he bring to our team that couldn't be brought by someone who doesn't take penalties 200 feet from jimmy howard, doesn't turn the puck over in the offensive zone, and doesn't back check
