<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>Dumpsterfire</b></div><div>You don't think a Provorov for our LD and a 2023 1st is a good addition for Detroit? We got a glaring hole on our LD and there is no capable LD that would be good enough as a 1st LD together with Moritz. Provorov needs a change of scenery and he would get a fresh start in Detroit under Lalonde. We also need to reach the cap floor + JVR's 7 mil is only for this year. The Matt Murray trade &amp; buyout would only last 4 years and our window is 4-5 years from now. The 1st rounder would be unprotected as well. We need to stock pile draft picks and add on our LD. This trade addresses both of these issues.</div></div>

Bertuzzi's greatest value will be at the trade deadline. We shouldnt be bailing teams out at our own expense. Giving them Bertuzzi for $2M is only going to allow them to go spend $11M more in free agency. Last year they underperformed heavily. That 1st round pick for Bertuzzi and taking a shot a a $6.5M defenseman with 3 years left isnt worth it at all. JVR to clear space, im ok with working out some sort of deal... but really Yzerman is savy and smart. This trade would have everyone concerned he fell and bumped his head. If you compared Provorov's numbers with Staal last year, they wouldnt be far off and we could just keep Staal for $2M. Im just saying that this trade would allow philly to get better, which likely then they make the playoffs and that pick has way less value then it does right now when they suck. so take JVR and a 1st for a 4th and move on. No Provorov high risk when you have Sieder who will need a contract in 2 years.. And when Sieder outperforms Provorov by 10 fold, he will use provorovs contract as his baseline. Just way too many risks and I dont see one possible reward.
