Of course you can tell by my name that I am a big fan of Bertuzzi ever since the wings got him. But the Wings are known for getting big name players and getting rid of them not to long after they aquire them. Derian Hatcher is a prime example. So what do you think will happen to him after this year?

Of course I am all for finishing his career in Detroit thumbup.gif

Loosing Hatcher I think was a different situation. He left during the lockout during a time when a lot of people had moved around.

Wasn't Hatcher injured quite a bit too?

Yes he was. Pretty much most of the wings season. He was just something to make the Wings look good on the roster sheet laugh.gif

i think with what Bert has done this year in the playoffs (score, hit, agitate) he's cemented his role here. I think calder and lang on the other hand are gonners.

I'd rather get someone else that can take his place that would possibly drop the gloves more. We also have to give up a 2nd to keep him, you guys remember?

it's not a deep draft and we still have a our 1st pick, i say he stays, you say he goes,...will see how it pans out i guess. If he signs for a discount it's a no brainer

I was reading on Yahoo! that rumor was that Phoenix might be looking to sign Bertuzzi, but considering his play so far has no doubtly earned him a space on the wings, Lang and a couple of others will be gone (clearing up 5+ million in space), the pressure Florida will put on him to sign (getting them a draft pick), I do not think the Coyotes will be able to sign him. I guess Forsberg might be a candidate for them, but I believe Bert will be back next year as a Wing
40 for life.

People say it's not a deep draft because there's no superstars in it. We have done pretty well with 2nd rounders and the more the better, especially if we lose more picks for Bert's involvment in the playoffs. There's nothing that special about Bert that some other power forward could do, possibly even better.

NO WAY!

THE GREAT ONE said he won't be hiring anyone over 30 during an interview on NHL.com, so believe who you wanna believe.

As for Lang, I think he is a great dude(i remmember 2004 playoffs when he helped Stevie off the ice) but he is lacking the points he used to score, I say we dump him

As for Bertuzzi, I say we keep him, after all, Draft picks usually take time to become NHLers, Bert is already a star player.

LETS GO RED WINGS

Bertuzzi has been good and I think he's on his way to becoming a fan favorite. He's kept his cool under pressure and the fans love the physical presence he brings. It was great seeing him out there today. Whenever a Flames player was talking s*** he would skate by and just brush up against them so they knew he was there. That's something the Wings have been missing.
In a 2005 study published by the journal Nature, researchers at Durham University in England concluded that, across a range of sports, we found that wearing red is consistently associated with a higher probability of winning. The researchers also suggested that red's effect may subconsciously intimidate opponents in athletic contests, especially when the athletes are equal in skill and strength.

I'd be really pissed off if the Wings let Calder leave.

Yeah, but there are plenty of power forwards just like Bert that we can sign this season and keep the draft pick.
One star power forward - check
One potential NHLer - check

or

One star power forward

There aren't plenty of power forwards in the NHL, let alone plenty of ones we can sign.

Definitly. I love Bertuzzi now that he plays for the Wings. He is just the type of player that the Wings have needed for so long. He really played great in Game 4, and didn't let all the booing get to him and effect his game.
