In case you missed it earlier this week, Bertuzzi is out for the full 10 day Covid protocol period, he will miss five games and won’t be paid during this time.

from Nicholas J. Cotsonika of NHL.com,

The Detroit Red Wings have the best rookie forward in the NHL right now. And the best rookie defenseman. And the best rookie goalie.

For a team that has missed the Stanley Cup Playoffs the past five seasons, nothing brings more excitement in the short term and hope for the long term than the play of Lucas Raymond, Moritz Seider and Alex Nedeljkovic.

The three have helped the Red Wings (12-9-3) win four straight entering their game against the New York Islanders at Little Caesars Arena on Saturday (7 p.m. ET; BSDET, MSG+, ESPN+, NHL LIVE).

“Obviously,” coach Jeff Blashill said, “there’s been a real infusion of talent with those three players.”

So DDK missed the same amount of days and just one less game than the unvaxxed bert is expected to miss.

Exactly. Everyone seriously thinks that if you get covid you’ve got AIDS and you’re guaranteed to die. It’s idiotic.

A friend of mine got covid in the last month was fine after a week and everyone at his work acts like he’s a “survivor”.

“oh mah gawd! How are you?”

“You’re so brave! How do you feel now?”

“What was it like? Do you have long covid?”

Don’t look on Twitter because when Bert was announced he had it, there were people saying he was going to be out for weeks to months and it was his fault he was going to be permanently damaged. Totally absurd.

Everyone is out for 10 days as that’s the standard unless a Dr approval says so otherwise but 99% will be out for 10 day waiting period.

Because he is not vaccinated?

Yup. Here’s what I posted in the longer thread on Bert and COVID.

Because he’s unvaccinated, he does not get paid for the time he’s on COVID protocol. That’s five games or 6.1% of the season. He also doesn’t get paid for the eight games he can’t play in Canada. That’s an additional 9.8%. So, he loses 15.9% of his $4.75M salary. That’s a total of around $755,000.

He must have some strongly held beliefs about getting vaccinated to have risked losing that kind of money.

Erne is the only player on the 2nd PP who had a shooting percentage close to 10% hronek, leddy and ras are all under 3%  Valeno has a 12% but why put him on the man advantage?  Defense.

“Everybody” does not say any of that. If you think Twitter is a representative sample of public opinion on ANYthing, then I suggest you spend a lot less time on it.

Puck retrieval and net front presence is important on a PP, I would actually try Ras and even Smith. Just to try different options.

Nobody thinks this at all. It’s ridiculous to even suggest that.

Has there been an actual confirmation that the team has suspended Bertuzzi without pay during covid protocol? I thought the CBA agreement slowed them to do that, but didn’t require them to do that.

I dont spend any serious amount of time on Twitter. I suggest you actually read more than one tweet next time.

I clicked the feed from a post here and it was all over the post. Try again.

Agreed but erne should be the shooter not the retriever.  3 of the 5 players on 2nd PP have shooting percentage under 3%  erne is the only player that SHOULD be on that PP but the fact Valeno isn’t on it with his 12% shooting percentage is suspect.  That’s not utilizing your roster the best way to win the game.
