Bertuzzi I think will be a salary dump, I really don't think he will go for a fair value around the league. they might not save that much off the original deal but Zednik can easily be shopped around and they have to take a bad contract (lesser one) when u trade Todd.
No way Vancouver takes Bonk. It they trade Bertuzzi, it is to clear salary... and certainly not get another salary problem.

I think Bertuzzi-Zednik alone would fit better a salary dump scheme.

When Gainey dumped Theodore's salary... we didn't have to take another bad salary... just someone (Aebischer) who had not shined as much at any point of his career than Theodore.

As for your trade with Tamba Bay... I don't see why we would help them fight us for a playoff spot, by solving their goaltending situation cheaply (1.9Millions)... and for only a second round pick?

Maybe against a good forward but otherwise... I don't want to help them.
