The Boston Bruins have had few mid-season additions who felt like a better fit than Tyler Bertuzzi.
Acquired on the day before the 2023 NHL Trade Deadline and representing Don Sweeney’s truest “all-in” move of the season, Bertuzzi slid right in and not just produced but endeared himself to the fans by being a “little greaseball,” as Brad Marchand described him.
Bertuzzi should be a Bruin long-term, for multiple reasons that we’ll get into for this story. But is it possible? If so, what’s the cost? What (or who) needs to be sacrificed?
