Gainey said it anyway, the habs are a fast offensive team, they're build this way and going to stay this way... Bertuzzi is just a very bad fit in all aspects...
It's the cap era. $4M...that's why he's gone. If he was earning $1.5M they wouldn't think of moving him.

Bertuzzi will be bought out, i'd sign him for 2.5 for a year. He'll help influence latendresse(in a good way I hope). Of course, we'd need to shed some salary. Dandenault comes to mind. I'd lose dandy and get bertuzzi for 1 mil more any day.

People over-do what he did. He hit moore in the back of the head. Yes, he's stronger than most, if not all of us, and he had an intent to injure or at least get moore's attention, so it obviously wasn't right, but it's the outcome that put him in a hole. Moore could never play hockey again, and I don't think that was berts intention. 'Premeditated' isn't exactly right IMO, he challenged him to fight, when he declined, he got frustrated and did something stupid. If Moore stood back up, bertuzzi would've got a review from the league and maybe a couple games suspension(especially back then when they didn't crack down like now). If I punch someone in the back of the head(which isn't the strongest of spots, let someone give you a nice punch in back of the head, you'll feel dizzy as ******* assuming you don't get knocked out) and he'd get a concussion, I may have went too far, but to say I'd be a criminal is a little extreme. To give this perspective, if someone gave your bestfriend(he and naslund are bestfriends) a concussion and then they walked away, I'd probably try and knock him out too. Doesn't mean it's right, doesn't mean it's not human either.

The Mighty Ducks have mighty bucks issues.

It's a cap thing.

I think there will probably be a taker for Bertuzzi. My guess is a market where hockey isn't in the spotlight.

I like to think that the Montreal Canadiens organization has certain moral and ethical standards and will not go below those standards to hire anyone into the organisation.

I think that Bertuzzi, after the Moore incident is below those standards and therefore will not be considered to be hired by Les Glorieux.

I believe that we can all review the history of Le Club de Hockey Canadien and recall some players that have been traded for no other reason than they slipped below the established standards.

That narrows it down to 24 teams.

Lou Lamoriello has a knack for signing just the right veterans who are overlooked by other GMs. Some of the signings that have been suggested for the Habs on this board over the last few years remind of fish that have been off the market far too long to be edible. If Bertuzzi is available so soon after going to a new team it tells me that the stench can't be mistaken even though he plays on a cooled ice surface. Besides that, he's a despicable person.

Since he'll be a UFA after being bought out the money wont be the same.

Bert is the type of player we would need on the first two lines. But he'd not the player he used to be and he's old.

The truth is from what i've seen of the Habs last year, even if you have somebody like Komi that hits like brick, we don't have in Gainey and Carbo management that wants to take this further and really adds genuine character to the team. They live in a imaginary hockey World where pansies Rule the World. I remember last year after the Patrick Roy/LJMQ incident Carbo said something along the line that they didn't want fighters, fights was pointless and they should banned. As such Bert would be the last guy the current organisation would hire.

on re-entry...yes. Hell we had smoke for a year at that salary...Big Bert would be more useful to us...

I haven't seen him play this year though...was he that bad????

He was amazing for a stretch of 15 games or so when put with Getzlaf and Perry. I don't know what happened to that line, I assume it ended when Perry got hurt.

Like you said, I'd take him on re-entry. Who can you get these days at $2 million? Honestly, it's really hard to get a sleepr kind of guy like Bert. 40 points in 68 games on a team lacking offence isn't that bad. People forget he was hurt most of the year before too, only played 15 regular season games. Then I believe he had limited icetime on Detroit.

not at 4 million, but if we don't get Sundin, i'd take him in a heartbeat

exactly what the Habs need...a big body in the top 6

now of course he's not what he used to be, but put him on a line with Higgins and Koivu and I could see it working very well

Bertuzzi bought out heh?

Hmm... I'm intrigued in the possibility of us taking a gamble if we can't land something else...

July 1st gets more and more interesting with all these buy-outs...

Zhitnik, Bertuzzi, Tucker and Raycroft are 4 quality NHL-caliber players who will attract some attention on the UFA market.

Bertuzzi for 2,5-3M per season? Why not!

Why do so many posters insist on picking up other people's garbage or recycables? Further to that, why are so many Hab fans intent on desiring players who are simply overpaid for what they bring to the ice?

I would much rather stick with what we have than waste our cap space on guys that want too much and deliver too little. The only over-30 guy I would like to see Bob land is Sundin as he still has it and still brings it night after night and, no, he doesn't disappear come playoff time. Forget Selanne, Jagr, Roberts, Hossa, and other similar over-the-hill, overpriced has-beens or near to that. Why not look at some younger guys we could fill in with. And let's continue to give our younger guys a chance to shine.
