Bertuzzi Contract Extension

Rate this topic

92 posts in this topic

good to see bert coming back but i hope kenny frees up some spots next year for the kids like nyquist and tatar.

I doubt Hudler, Cleary, Holmstrom and Stuart will all be here next year. Possibly even Kindl and Emmerton gone this seaosn. We'll have a completely new team next season and Bertuzzi is a great Vet to have with an infusion of young guns next season.

The price seems a bit high for his age and the term. I'd hope for a 2 million dollar cap hit but this is really a matter of Holland rewarding the loyal, hardworking guys.

Bertuzzi's shootout skills alone may net us home ice advantage for the next two seasons.

glad he's back but one year should have been done this is the 35+ situation .... Holland did this with homer too but should have done one year only wit that as well. You never know bert could age fast and be done next year then what do you do,,.,?

^ Cleary is signed until next season. You think he'll be traded?

Yes. His NTC expired a few weeks ago. Holland had a plan at the time of Clearys extension.

Im a BC boy and have been a fan of Bertuzzi since the Canucks got him from the Isles in the late 90's ... hes not as big, as fast, or as mean as he was in his "prime" but how many big men in the league today have hands like this guy? Hes evolving as a player and really doing his best to be a team guy. If Bert stays healthy this move will pay off. I really hope this guy can lift the Cup before he hangs'em up.

Bert played extremely well in the playoffs last year, he dropped the gloves a few times and had the crowd chanting Todd Bertuzzi all night some games. Bert is loved in Detroit, and he loves the city also, and he enjoys playing for the organization. Bert also provides an edge of physicality on the top line along Pavel and creates space for him, although alot of the penalties he takes are on reputation only. This is a good signing, and hope he performs like this year for another 2 years.

Where'd you hear this? Hope you're right, either way.

Sorry, should have clarified:

Fact: Cleary's NTC expired a couple weeks ago.

Conjecture: Holland must have had a plan for that. He either thought we might need to cut salary come the trade deadline or he might have thought Cleary would make good trade bait, otherwise he doesn't have the NTC expire around a trade deadline.

I suspect Holmstrom may hang em up after this year. Weird that Cleary's NTC expired this time of the year. Doubt Ken did that by accident. I wouldn't be heartbroken if we packaged Kindl, Cleary, and Emmerton at the deadline for a grinder and a guy that can play some offense. Someone mentioned Samuel Pahlsson earlier, meh. Ideally, I'd like to get someone we could keep around for a while. Pahlsson is beginning to age. I actually would be open to Steve Ott here.

Good to hear Bert is likely coming back next year. I would've liked to see a one-year deal, but oh well. Hopefully he can continue his production for 2 more years.

I really like Bertuzzi, and the element he brings to the team. I am glad Holland sees him, as an asset, instead of this old relic he keeps around.

And just a quick story from the last game I went to. During the game when the Wings were here playing the Coyotes last time, there was this guy, (a Red Wings fan), about five rows up from where I was sitting. Nearly every time Bert was on the ice, he would yell out, "come on Bert, end somebodies career tonight!" I know I shouldn't have laughed, but I chuckled a little bit, and shook my head. The name Bertuzzi is just flat out infamous! This team takes a lot of s***, about being so called soft, but I like the infamous Bertuzzi name on this team.

Dude, Bertuzzi made Filppula who he is today. He gave that kid confidence when everyone else was down on him.

Not everyone. :wub:

Looks like he threw a stick into the air with one hand and then held onto another stick in the other.

Although if I had to guess based on the knob of the stick on the left I'm guessing that's Lidstrom's.

Pshhh, speak for yourself. Although I'm sure you posted this as to show why this re-signing was a good thing.

Bertuzzi's been good the last couple years, he was about the only guy producing for a stretch last year. But I think this should have waited until early July (see what else is available), been for one year (he is 37), and been for less money.
