A Good Chance Bertuzzi Stays With Florida

from the Palm Beach Post,

Todd Bertuzzi appears to no longer be a candidate for a trade. The latest setback in his rehab from back surgery means Bertuzzi will play at most three games before the deadline, and unless he scores hat tricks in all three, nobody is going to offer more than a conditional draft pick. That’s not enough.
By holding onto Bertuzzi for the rest of the season, Martin gets exclusive negotiating rights with him until July’1. And again, unless he excels beyond expectations in the 20 or so games he plays, it’s hard to imagine any team looking to offer Bertuzzi more than one year at, say, $3 million to $4 million plus incentives. He loves the weather and relative anonymity of South Florida; there’s a good chance he’ll be back.
