It makes no sense for anyone to trade for a guy making over five million dollars a year (after the rollback) until we see what happens on the free agent market. Its quite possible that there will be half a dozen guys about as good as Bertuzzi on the market (Demitra, Pallfy, Forsberg, Kovalev, Bondra, Allison, Lang, Kariya), all of whom will probably make less than Bert. While some of these players may have had bad seasons under their belts or other question marks, remember that Bert has quite a few question marks of his own. His last couple of seasons werent great, his playoffs leave much to be desired (sure he played physical in the playoffs, but he isnt getting paid to be a goon, he's paid to score goals), takes bad undisciplined penalties (which is sure to put him in Hitchcock's dogf house), and of course there might be bad pr and other fallout from the Moore incident.
