If they do sign him, I don't see them winning a cup for a while.

Well, they haven't won since 1967, I don't think they'll start now,lol. Thing is even when they lose people still buy Gold seats at $600 a pop.

I know. But at least they will have someone to throw the blame on. And his name is Avery.

Although Avery is a pest and nobody likes him, he does bring something to a team. Some GM's and owners want him on their team because he stirs things up, and he can also produce.

Still, if I was a GM or owner, I would never put that guy on my team lol


UPDATE: BERTUZZI ON WAIVERS
Quote:
ANAHEIM, Calif. -- The Anaheim Ducks placed Todd Bertuzzi on unconditional waivers Friday and intend to buy out the final year of his contract.

The forward was due to earn $4 million in the second and last year of his contract. The Ducks will buy out that final season for $2.6 million.

Bertuzzi was to clear waivers on Saturday morning unless he is claimed, Ducks spokesman Alex Gilchrist said.

The move allows the Ducks to make room under the salary cap for, among other things, trying to re-sign restricted free agent Corey Perry, Gilchrist said.

"Todd Bertuzzi is a quality person who we believe can still play at the NHL level," Ducks general manager Brian Burke said in a statement. "Unfortunately, we are handcuffed by our salary cap situation. We thank him for his efforts last year and wish him the best of luck in the future."

The 33-year-old Bertuzzi signed with Anaheim last summer and had 40 points in 68 games.
Who do you guys think will pick him up? He is a great player. Maybe he likes SoCal enough to sign with the Kings

Ron Wilson won't have Avery on this team, and last time I checked Fletcher is unloading dead weight not adding it. JFJ really screwed the pooch for the Leafs, the Blake contract, NMC and NTC coupled with trading the best goalie prospect besides Carey Price for Rayrcroft.

Avery is also looking 4 year 16 million dollar contract, for a guy who hasn't cracked 20 goals. No players tank nation this year, Tavares next year

This year's UFA crop blows, but yet a lot of GMs will blow money on lengthy and expensive contracts. If Corey Stillman is healthy, I think he'd be a good option up front for a decent contract. Potential 60-70 point player with 2 cups on 2 different teams.

Atlanta, Columbus? The LA Kings don't need him, keep growing that young talent. He'll probably catch around 2 mil, which some team will defiently take a chance on. Bertuzzi isn't the same player that dominated back in Vancouver, man I really hope Burke doesn't come to Toronto.

Kings don't need him, but he would be cheap and would overall be an asset to the team. I highly doubt he will sign with them though...

And about Sean Avery, I think he is a little prick who doesn't deserve more than $2 mil a year. I think a Canadian team will pick him up.

Tampa Bay has signed Ryan Malone to a 7 year deal worth 31.5 million.

I am going to say Tampa Bay will make it to the playoffs.

Wow
I mean, Malone is good, but that is a shit load of money.

Lightning are really dedicated to turn their team around. Malone should be a good addition to their team.
