Now We Wait For A Decision On Tyler Bertuzzi

10/25/2020 at 6:20pm EDT

from Ted Kulfan of the Detroit News,

The Wings are proposing $3.15 million, while Bertuzzi is asking for $4.25 million. Bertuzzi will get a big raise under either figure, as he made $1.4 million last season....

Under the NHL's new collective bargaining agreement, an arbitrator must decide within 48 hours of the hearing's conclusion. But unlike in years past, the team and the player are no longer permitted to continue negotiating after the session begins.

The arbitrator’s decision will be for a one-year deal, and not necessarily what the team or player submitted; it could be somewhere in between. Bertuzzi will be a restricted free agent again next offseason....

The Wings also have two other restricted free agents, forwards Anthony Mantha and Dmytro Timashov, but neither filed for arbitration.

General manager Steve Yzerman has been working with Mantha’s representatives on a long-term deal.

Mantha 26, had 16 goals and 38 points in an injury-marred 43-game season. It was the third time in Mantha's young career that seasons have been cut short by injuries. He has had 24- and 25-goal seasons, but has yet to reach 30 in his career.

Timashov was acquired on waivers from Toronto late last season. There has been speculation Timashov might spend this coming NHL season in Russia, although his representatives have denied it.

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.
