Game Day Post: Ducks at Canucks

For the first time since getting traded, Bert is back. Naturally, all the talk around Canuckland is about him playing his first game at GM Place in about a year and a half.

I don't think there's any question that Bert's return will be well-received by the GM Place faithful. Even in his darkest hour, Vancouver fans stood by him. I was at the Brad May Charity Classic - during the lockout year and in the middle of his suspension - and fans saved the biggest ovation for him. I don't see any reason for those sentiments to have changed.

I was a big Bertuzzi fan during his time here. I can't think of any other Canuck skater - maybe Pavel - that could dominate the game and control the game the way he did. When he was on the ice, he pretty much did anything he wanted to. Really, the only question was, well... how often he wanted to. Obviously, Bert hasn't been as dominant in the last few years. He's only played three games since coming back from his latest injury but he's got three points (all assists) in them.

The Canucks will have their hands full tonight. Emotions aside, the Ducks are actually on a nice, little roll. They started the season much like the Canucks did, but turned it around and are a very good 7-2-2 in November, including a 3-1 record on the road. Ryan Getzlaf, especially, has played great and now leads the Ducks in scoring with 25 points, 15 (7G-8A) of which he put up in 11 November games.

Roberto Luongo is coming off a shutout of the Blackhawks on Sunday, and I hope he's forgotten about the last time he faced Anaheim. On that one, fateful overtime period in May, Louie took his eye off the puck for a split-second and let in a blast (sure, let's call it that) from Rob Scott Niedermayer that eliminated the Canucks from the playoffs. I'm thinking Louie's over it, but I hope he has some special sort of payback in mind tonight.

Actually, it was Scott's "blast" not Rob's. Rob had the big hit on Hansen.

Are you freakin' kidding me? The fans cheered Bertuzzi? Am I the only one that remembers how he single-handedly scuttled their getting into the playoffs with all those insane penalties at crucial points? He's a total ---hole. Total bad energy. Whenever you see him on the ice, he acts like the world owes him a favor. A lot of that bad mojo left the building when he left. I couldn't understand why they didn't just bench him.

"Bertuzzi sucks" is an understatement. Bertuzzi is a total loser. I love our team now. And there's no way they could have this kind of team chemistry with that loser.
