Bertuzzi heads to Anaheim

The Anaheim Ducks have signed forward Todd Bertuzzi to a two-year contract.
Brian Burke has always been one of Bert's biggest fans, and there were a ton of rumours at the trade deadline that the Ducks were desperately trying to acquire him.

Just imagine what a line with Bertuzzi and Dustin Penner might look like?

UPDATE The only thing I can think to add at this moment is that this, perhaps, means that Teemu Selanne has played his last game in the NHL.

And Schneider-Bertuzzi certainly seems like a downgrade from Niedermayer-Selanne.

I don't really get this one. I didn't see the Ducks as really needing a Bert kind of player, especially with the youngster they have right now and in the pipeline. I know Teemu may not be back, but just looking at the Ducks needs overall... I dunno. (And I do know about Burke's history with Bert. Doesn't mean it makes sense for that team.)

I've probably just missed something obvious, but why would that imply that Selanne is done in the NHL?

As a wings fan, I'm happy they "let bertuzzi get away" James, I think you were spot on when you described him as "a cancer."

Also, if the wings really want to sign a physical player past his prime, I say they go with Lindros or Amonte... Not that I think it would be the best move for them.

If the Wings want to sign a physical player past his prime, I say they go with Shanahan. Then again, I still want them to try to get younger.

They need to pick up Hasek and someone like Guerin, then save some cash for loading up before the playoffs.

Bertuzzi and Pronger on the same team? If I'm John Welter I'm staffing up this fall.

There were people who wanted this clown in Calgary. I can't stress enough how happy I am that he signed anywhere else...
