Simmons weighs in on Brodeur-to-Montreal & Seattle rumors and offers Bertuzzi notes

The Toronto Sun's Steve Simmons penned a week's worth of hockey, baseball, football, etc.-related observations, these ones stood out:

With Dustin Tokarski and Peter Budaj under contract, where did this Martin Brodeur to Montreal story come from? Doesn’t make any sense ... The NHL may be obsessed with putting a franchise in Seattle, but the hockey people I trust most in that city don’t think there is any impetus for the NHL in the market.


The book somebody should write: The decade post-Bertuzzi. What happened from the day of the incident to the day of the eventual settlement. It could be Grisham-like ... Name to remember, by the way, Tag Bertuzzi. Todd’s son is considered one of the rising stars in Michigan minor hockey.

Simmons continues and discusses the Leafs, as you might expect, as well as the concept that "centres [are] the key to the Cup"...
