Bertuzzi Discussion now Global

Like it or not, the Red Wings finally made a deal that has everyone talking...
Look, we even made the news in Tawain...


DETROIT (AP) _ The Detroit Red Wings signed Todd Bertuzzi to a one-year, $1.5 million contract in the hopes that the veteran forward can help make up for some of the Red Wings' significant losses.

After falling one win short of repeating as Stanley Cup champions in June, the Red Wings watched as forwards Marian Hossa, Jiri Hudler, Mikael Samuelsson and Tomas Kopecky signed with other teams.

The 34-year-old Bertuzzi scored 15 goals and had 44 points last season, ranking sixth in both categories for the Calgary Flames. He played in an average of 67 games the past two seasons after a back injury stunted his career."

This little blurb fell right between golf and sailing...but hey, they weren't talking about anything else hockey.

Yes, news is slow...but the Bertuzzi deal is being discussed by Sports Illustrated, in North Dakota, Ottawa, Las Vegas, and now even in Denver (well, only to try and re-spark the fizzled rivalry).

They're all talkin' about Todd Bertuzzi going to Detroit. Nobody cared when we signed Jason Williams (again), nobody really paid attention to the Eaves signing either. Those two from Toronto, Andy Delmore, and Doug Janik? Not even blips on people's radar. But we have their attention now.

As the Chief over at Abel to Yzerman would say. "I dig it."
