Tyler Bertuzzi would make a great Philadelphia Flyer going forward

Tyler Bertuzzi would love to play for a coach like John Tortorella. He'd fit right into that system and can play the way Torts wants guys to play.

Bertuzzi would be a great Philadelphia Flyers forward for a lot of the same reasons that Max Domi would be. He is a guy that can provide offense while making life hard for the opposition. Few skilled players are as good at the nasty side of the game as Bertuzzi.

Like Domi, Bertuzzi can play on a big line with star players or he can muck it up on a third line in a checking role. Either way, he is going to score some goals.

In 2023-24 with the Maple Leafs, Bertuzzi had 21 goals and 22 assists for 43 points in 80 games played. That all came with a slow start to the season too which tells you how strong of a producer he became down the stretch.

If the Flyers added goal-scoring production like that to their middle six next season, they'd have a much better chance of being competitive in the Metro again. The fact that he plays with an edge is a bonus.
