Wake up and smell the coffee. Todd Bertuzzi performed a stupid stunt which ended a player's career and now proceeds to blame Marc Crawford for it years later. Bertuzzi behaved like a spoiled brat in his final season as a Vancouver Canuck. If you haven't noticed, his career has gone downhill since. Brian Burke overpaid to sign him, and many in the media wonder why.
Legally Bertuzzi is doing the right ting, he's simply spreading the pain ( financial)
Naslund did not perform to his past skill level. Every one thought it was a good move when they signed him. But it didn't work out that way. A Great person and what ever his next career is I wish him well. It's a tough time in any ones career, the ..... end and how to handle it. Financially he's likely worth as much as Kesler and if you recall Linden was once on 3.5 and ended at 750K . Is that waht Naslund wants. He has his family to consider, schooling and as he stated in-laws have never seen much of the children etc. Why he would want to continue is not clear to me.
But the fact is they expected a certain ability and he didn't bring it. Morrison, jury still out, he was injured.
But what ever or who ever is signed you have to think the next season model will be an improvment with extra money avaiable.
I just thank DN that he was able to hold off the owners wish to jettison the young propects for short term gain.
