Rumor: Red Wings ‘shopping’ Bertuzzi?

This strikes me as very, very odd, but "On Frozen Blog" reports that there may be more to the Red Wings' decision to scratch Todd Bertuzzi than we know:

I don't believe that the Wings want to "shop" their nuclear deterrent--he's just had a rough couple of games since the Winter Classic and needs a kick in the pants.

Update: Well who the hell knows:

I don't believe it. Not for a second. The boss and I tried to get on top of this one and it turned out to be bologna.

I smell an E5 somewhere here.  I might be wrong.

Bert for Green, straight up.

Do it Kenny, you know you want to.

I saw the tweet, saw George was around and he posted and mentioned he doubts it will happen.

So I just did some research and found the source of the rumor is almost like the E5 guy, you know, name enough names and teams and eventually it could come true.

But surprised a MSM guy would pick up that, unless of course it is coming from somewhere else.

No one wants Sammy. Besides, no one knows what his current potential is right now, other then how well he sits in the press box.

I can’t imagine Bert going anywhere.

I dunno, maybe we can get a team to take Sammy for whatever was in the case in Pulp Fiction.

Shop Sammy?  Were you standing in front of a brick wall with a microphone in your hand while you typed that?

Also, if the Bert rumour isn’t true, then it’s unfortunate…
