Bertuzzi is a Red Wing

...fer cheap.

Well, I have mixed feelings about this one.

On one hand, he was singularly the most frustrating Calgary Flame I have ever watched play hockey.  He had all the skill and talent in the world, and a monstrous frame to complement it - but he'd only use it 12.8% of the time.  On the other hand, when he decided to use those skills he looked like an elite hockey forward.

For $1.5 million, the Wings have him for one year. On their 3rd line.

I can't decide if I would have enjoyed seeing that 12.8% on the 3rd line in a flaming C?

That's Primeau money.  That's *gasp* a bargain. AND he wanted to play here.

Did the flames make a mistake not grabbing Big Bert up at this "discount"?

I think they did.
