Think eastern conference people. No way Bertuzzi gets traded to a team that the 'Nucks are neck-in-neck with.
Best comparison to Bert's trade value is the Tkachuk deal.....Taffe, Nagy, Handzus, and a first? If Bert wants 8 million (fair market value)....the Canucks should find a taker for him and move him after the season is over. In the end i think Burke will get him signed for 6.5 a year over four years increasing slowly to 7.25 or so in the last year. The Iginla contract should be used as a model. That would be a pretty good deal.
