Bertuzzi May Call Detroit Home

from Helene St. James of the Detroit Free Press,

“Certainly the organization liked what Todd did, and Todd enjoyed his year in Detroit, and is interested in coming back,” agent Pat Morris said.

Bertuzzi, 35, made $1.5 million last season. He was one of three Wings (with Lidstrom and Brad Stuart) to play all 82 games, during which he produced 18 goals among 44 points. He followed up with 11 points in 12 playoff games.

The deal might end up being for two years, as Bertuzzi, after moving every year since first leaving Detroit in the summer of 2007, is eager for some continuity. Earlier in the season, in discussing Detroit, he told the Free Press, “When the grass is as green as it is here, why go anywhere else?”...

The Wings also are expected to re-sign unrestricted free-agent forward Tomas Holmstrom, and possibly defenseman Andreas Lilja.
