The Hockey News:

4. Todd Bertuzzi to the Anaheim Ducks for two years and $8 million
An admirable act of charity on GM Brian Burke's behalf? A savvy bet that a once-elite-level talent can be rejuvenated in relative anonymity? Evidence that even the best GMs in the business occasionally lose their minds long enough to work the fax machine?

All I know is, bringing in one of the most notoriously dour, baggage-burdened players into the dressing room, and potentially losing good-guy leaders Scott Niedermayer and Teemu Selanne, is exactly what I'd want to see if I worked for the Ducks & and was a spy for another NHL team.

"The more I know about people - the better I like my dog." - Mark Twain

"A wise man once told me, ‘Don’t argue with fools. Cause people from a distance can’t tell who is who'." Jay Z, Takeover

"When I was looking for a captain, I wanted a guy with the Red Wings crest tattooed on his chest," said former Detroit coach Jacques Demers, who named Yzerman captain in 1986. "Steve Yzerman was that guy."

“Told him if he wasn't ultra-competitive he couldn't come here. If he didn't bring it every day he couldn't come here, because he was going to hate it if he didn't, dislike the coach and dislike playing here.
“It's real straightforward. If you don't do it right, you're not happy here." Babcock
