While Chief calls Bertuzzi “the great divider,” it seems like there’s a near-consensus among Red Wings bloggers. For your enjoyment, I’ve linked to their Bertuzzi-related musings here. While only Tyler from The Triple Deke echoes my full-blown beligerent hatred, there are quite a few no thank you’s in there.
From the ABSOLUTELY NOT Brigade
Matt, On the Wings :: “my negative reaction is really too overwhelming…”
Animal Drew, Nightmare on Helm Street :: “no longer welcome.”
Kris, Snipe Snipe Dangle Dangle :: “one player I absolutely do not want signed.”
Tyler, The Triple Deke :: “Bertuzzi rumors bring God’s existence into question.”
From the A LITTLE LESS VOMITTY Brigade
The Chief, Abel to Yzerman :: “all other issues aside, if that’s possible, he could be a positive.”
Kyle, Babcock’s Death Stare :: “rather have Bertuzzi than Williams.”
Malik, Snapshots :: “can only hope that [he’s] coming at a smaller salary…”
Christy, Winging it in Motown, remains rather diplomatic.
Michael Zuidema, Grand Rapids Press, just reports the news.
Wasn't Luc Robitaille available?
Well I know who WASN'T available: Steve Moore.
