If Bertuzzi does become a UFA early, it won't be a worst-case scenario since I'm assuming that would be a trade-off to get some fiscal restraint in place, in which case Burke could compete financially.

Personally, I would only move Bertuzzi if, come Fall 2004, there was a protracted holdout and bad-faith negotiations, by which time his trade value will already be pretty low. I think you'd probably see a deal like this:

To NYR: Todd Bertuzzi
To VAN: Anson Carter, Hugh Jessiman

...or something. I think he will get signed, though.
