According to the Flames GM Daryl Sutter:
“Todd is a proven scorer with the ability to play both wings. He expressed to us that he wanted to play in Canada and that desire along with signing him to a one year deal was important to our philosophy. He wanted to play on a good team and it fit our money."
And here's my favourite part:
"Additionally, our captain, Jarome Iginla, was a strong supporter of Todd and wanted him on our team.”
I am not a Calgary Flames fan, but I rooted for them when the Canucks did not make the playoffs last season! And I respect Jarome Iginla: During the NHL Awards after Tampa Bay Lightning won the Stanley Cup, Iginla was the only one who thanked God in his acceptance speech. Plus he is a good player and a nice guy. Not to mention, he's kinda hot.
I hope Bertuzzi stays healthy next season so he can improve his stats.
Welcome back to Canada, Bert!
