Bertuzzi has 3 points in his last 9 games, and is a minus 10 on the year...so it's not an awful move to drop him, but you're picking up someone who has no points this year, will have no points in December...may have points in January if he returns and is in shape...so why? On the positive side, having Sundin instead of Bert won't cost you in the +/- category. LOL.
I'm sure there are other people on the FA that would be a much better choice than both.
bertuzzi is off the top line in calgary and his production has disappeared. he's not worth much, IMO. as of today, sundin is worth less. even if sundin comes back he's not a fantasy force. he'll be lucky to be a point per game player
return the favor and help me with my post: http://messages.fantasysports.yahoo.com/Fantasy_Sports/Hockey/threadview?m=tm&bn=fan-hockey-drafttalk&tid=83023&mid=83023&tof=3&frt=2
Thats a really dumb ass thing to do. Sundin will not lace them up until the new year at the earliest and when he does he might net 40 points (probably 38 based on the averages of the last few seasons) for the balance of the year.
Bertuzzi is on pace for 54 this season or look - 38 points for the balance of the year - the exact same amount as Sundin. The only advantages Mats has over Bertuzzi might be all of the other things such as a marginal increase in SOG's and a better +/-, and that assumes he actually plays starting January first.
You should keep what you have and let some other GM waste a roster spot on Sundin.
