It ain’t just Jimmy D now boy. Nope. Tick Tock’s in on it too and it’s looking more and more like the great divider is headed back to Hockeytown.
General manager Ken Holland confirmed Monday the club is negotiating with free-agent forward Todd Bertuzzi.
“We’re talking to him,” Holland said.
Holland declined further comment, but a league source said the club offered Bertuzzi a one-year deal worth $1.5 million for next season, and that there is a strong indication that a deal will get done this week.
More on this tomorrow. My gut reaction: Holland wants him back. He was popular with the leadership on the ice. If he’s healthy he can be effective. All other issues aside, if that’s possible, he could be a positive.

About Abel to Yzerman
Welcome to Abel to Yzerman, a Red Wing blog since 1977. No other site on the internet has better-researched, fact-laden and better prepared discussions than A2Y. Re-phrase: we do little research, find facts and stats highly overrated and claim little to no preparation. There are 19 readers of A2Y. No more, no less. All of them, except maybe one, are juvenile in nature. Reminding them of that in the comment section will only encourage them to prove that.
