Kukla's Korner Hockey

from Brian Costello of The Hockey News,
There are many players still on the market and unfortunately a good chunk of them will never again play in the NHL. If you consider yourself picky, you might look at the UFA list and say there are only a couple names worth considering.
It all depends on what a team is looking for – from Maxim Afinogenov to Mike Zigomanis, there’s a role for a lot of these guys. One UFA who continues to catch my eye is the enigmatic Todd Bertuzzi.
Say what you want about Big Bert and his past crimes of poor judgment, he can still be a useful player on a handful of teams.
The days of Bertuzzi being a 40-goal scorer and point-a-game player on a top line are long gone. So are the stipends of $5 million plus per season.
