Should Bertuzzi get traded? Do you mean will he?

He is still hurt so i doubt anyone wants him. If he were in Forsbergs situation where he came back and played 10 or so games and put up some points and showed he was over his injury, then maybe he would be worth a 1st round pick and a prospect.

Detroit has been rumoured to be looking for a big scoring winger to replace Shanahan for the playoffs, but I think Guerin is more desirable.

You never know, stranger things have happened, but i think he will stay in FLA.

Yeah, I was a little confused by the 'should' as well...
From Florida's perspective, certainly i'm sure they are trying to trade him.
If they can get some assets guaranteed (high pick + ?) then I would
assume they would pull the trigger...

To me, Florida gave up their franchise player to get him (Luongo). Unless management knows more than we do and Bertuzzi is more injured than he is letting on, I think they should keep him and rest him, and let him come back fresh for next season.

leigh - He is a UFA come July 1 meaning that the Panthers will likely lose him. So being back fresh for next season is not really relevant.

tctitans - I agree with you that if they can swing a 1st rounder they will pull the trigger.

I think he should be traded, but would anyone really want him?

So if they keep him will they make the playoffs? No! So why keep him. They will lose him in the summer. Or do you think they should sign him long term. Again, another big risk.

Its really easy to say "hes good, keep him" but it would be nice if you took some other factors into account.

I think the Penguins really need somebody like him! And fast!!!
They need a hitter because the team is all filled with small fast guys which isn't bad but they need at least one hitter to help with the defence And Bretuzzi can get the job done easily

The Penguins have a hitter....Jarkko Ruutu. That guy loves to hit, the announcers always make some comment about it, and I've seen him crush tons of players (Jagr in the Olympics comes to mind first)...there are a lot of great examples on YouTube.

Also, Malkin's not that small, he's 6'3", but he doesn't hit a lot.

I read this morning that Martin is asking too much for his players including Bertuzzi. Another reason why he should stay behind the bench and focus on coaching. Leave the managing to the managers. Apparantley, Brian Burke was interested in him but the asking price was Corey Perry. I dont think it is that far off, considering what rentals are being rumored to go for, but i guess Perry is an established young NHLer while picks and prospects can turn out to be crap.
