Bertuzzi offered deal


And some indication the deal gives the Wings a bit of a discount from last year's cap number due to the second year.
Defense and goaltending win championships!!!

I'm expecting to hear that Holland has signed Bertuzzi to a 2 year/2.5 million contract. That's my guess, and I think it will be announced sometime this week.

2 year at 2.5 million would be an awesome bargain.

Agreed and I'm in the same boat that I think it's going to be a 2 yr deal in between 2.4 and 2.8 total...

Not a bad thing here, however I think there are many of us who would like to see him be more physical like he was in Vancouver. This year he had countless opportunities to finish checks but chose not to, If we can get Tuzz to start finshing those checks I think it could be an intimidation factor. I don't want the punch to the back of the head Bertuzzi back but I would like to see him wrecking some bodies, and an occasional goal would be nice.

Meech can move on but Lilja should be re-signed.
It's amazing how much clarity comes when you care more about the Red Wings than any individual player.

I still love Lils and would welcome him back with open arms, however, I would like for us to wait until after the start of FA, to see if we even have a shot at a guy like Exelby or Boynton... if neither of them sign on at a very reasonable cap hit, and fast, I say we just bring back Lils at 1.2 or less for a couple years and call it a day.

Meech will be traded, maybe in a package with other assets that we won't necessarily have room for, but own the rights to (Miller, Ritola, etc...)

One way or another though, I am very happy with the way the off season has been worked so far...

An offer he can't refuse.

It will get done - earlier this season, he stated how he regretted leaving Detroit the first time and that he wants to re-sign with money being a non issue.

never gonna happen - he would easily get 4+ mil on the open market for top 4 minutes (probably top 2 minutes) and we don't have ANYWHERE near that cap available...

And he's mentioned the reason he did sign with the Ducks last time around is that they offered him a two year deal when the Wings could only offer him one. Seems like this one's in the bag already.

He'll sign for that deal. He doesn't care about the money.
