from Ted Kulfan of the Detroit News,

The compliment is simple and basic, but when talking about Tyler Bertuzzi, it really does fit.

Often, especially around either general manager Ken Holland or coach Jeff Blashill, when they get asked about Bertuzzi, one simple phrase keeps coming up.

“Tyler’s a hockey player,” they’ll say, with the utmost respect, praise and credit.

And it really is true.

Bertuzzi isn’t flashy. He isn’t the fastest, or strongest, or quickest or flashiest player on the ice.

But Bertuzzi is a hockey player, doing the hard work and getting results.

About Abel to Yzerman

Welcome to Abel to Yzerman, a Red Wing blog since 1977. No other site on the internet has better-researched, fact-laden and better prepared discussions than A2Y. Re-phrase: we do little research, find facts and stats highly overrated and claim little to no preparation. There are 19 readers of A2Y. No more, no less. All of them, except maybe one, are juvenile in nature. Reminding them of that in the comment section will only encourage them to prove that.
