Just curious what Bert is worth to PHI in trade ?

Bertuzzi is my favorite player and would love to see him come here but there's some problems. The first thing is that he hasn't played in well over a year so some rust has obviously set in. He may never even touch the forty goal plateau again. The other problem is his salary which is at some six million dollars. If Vancouver picked up half it wouldn't be a huge problem though. I just don't see either team making this trade especially if Vancouver thinks they can get Carter, Richards, Pitkanen, or Niitty in the deal. Let's face it the Flyers are trying to get younger and Bertuzzi for one of our cornerstones doesn't make much sense.
