The Tyler Bertuzzi Talk

07/11/2021 at 10:36am EDT

from Kevin Allen Of DetroitHockeyNow,

The Red Wings are not trying to trade Bertuzzi. It is likely they will sign him to an extension and he will be a fixture on the first or second line. Bertuzzi gives the Red Wings their grit and gumption.

On social media, fans are talking about the Maple Leafs giving up multiple picks for Bertuzzi, including a first rounder. Why would they consider trading Bertuzzi for picks.? The Red Wings want picks to find players like Bertuzzi. He’s only 26. The team looks sharper, more confident when Bertuzzi is playing.

It would have to be a deal that the Red Wings couldn’t refuse. The scenario that might draw Detroit general manager Steve Yzerman’s interest would be an expanded multi-player swap that included William Nylander. He’s also only 25, and posted 42 points in 51 games last season. Nylander was Toronto’s best player in the postseason. Nylander’s scoring up-side is much higher than Bertuzzi’s. But Bertuzzi is a prickly 20-goal scorer.

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.
