Two despised players up for grabs. I would take either of them if the price is right. Bertuzzi would provide a great presence in front of the net and you cant knock him of the puck. Tucker is gritty and a winner take all kind of guy. Either of them would provide what Nolan brings, but they likely have a little more in the tank. I wouldnt mind Nolan coming back either for that matter.
Well, I didnt check other posts obviously before this one so lets make it a choice. If you had to take one or the other, which one would you take?

I am not a big fan of doing this, but there are already threads on Bertuzzi and Tucker. This one really didn't need to be made.
Anyways, Bertuzzi is a guy that I really don't want on this team. I just don't want the guy on our team and I am sure many others feel that way.
I wouldn't mind Tucker on this team, though. If we can't sign Ryder, he's a guy I wouldn't mind seeing on the second line. He's got tons of energy. He'd even look good with Conroy. Those two would make a hell of a third line. What kind of money will he be looking for?
I wouldn't mind having Tucker on the flames if we could get him for under 2mil.Preferably a one year deal but i wouldn't flip out if he was signed to a 2year/3 mil deal(the second year being an option) I wouldn't want him signed for any longer then that though.I could see Tucker potting 20+ goals for flames as well as adding some grit to the 2nd or 3rd lines.
I hope Sutter manages to get Nolan inked to a 1 year deal too.
A big hell no to Bertuzzi though,hate the guy with a passion.

Option years are not permitted anymore under the 'new' CBA.
I noticed the Bertuzzi rumor thread got closed. Just want to point out about the guy who talked to Tanguay at the store and saying he wanted out. I believed him and it was true, Tanguay asked for a trade.
Keenan loves Bertuzzi, Calgary has a huge hole at 2nd line RW, the free agent market is down to bare bones.
