Bert in his prime was arguably the most valuable forward in the game. The Canucks in the early 2000's were a relatively small team overall, but just one guy like Bert playing 20 minutes a night made them a tough team.
We'll see, Zack could have been a star in junior this year and he's going to be on a Canuck workout plan this offseason. If he comes in this fall in great shape I'd expect he will be in the running for a top 9 role, and potentially a top 6 depending on what Gillis does.
As long as Booth doesn't get to him and tells him to repent his evil ways he will become a power forward
