Despite the reality of salaries and the way they're going down, Bertuzzi is an exception because he's a top player. I'm thinking he wants Bill Guerin money, and Burke should realize he's in a no win position and just give it to him. Burke knows well enough that this could cost him his job if it doesn't work out right.
My prediction is that Bertuzzi gets 16 mil for 2 years. Probably 7.5 & 8.5
After 2 years, then Bertuzzi becomes a UFA???
I'd like to see the deal for more than 2 years, preferably at least 3-4 years that Jovo/Linden signed..
