Red Wings Make Their Offer To Todd Bertuzzi

The Free Press' Helene St. James is reporting that the Red Wings have offered a two-year deal to Todd Bertuzzi. Bertuzzi will become an unrestricted free agent later this offseason if he doesn't work out a new deal with the Red Wings first, which is what the team's front office is trying to do right now.

The fact that Bertuzzi was offered a two-year deal is somewhat interesting. It may indicate that the Wings want to lessen his cap hit since space is so limited as it is. It also indicates that the Wings want to lock Bertuzzi up for a couple seasons as opposed to just one, showing their confidence in him after a solid 2009-10 season.
