Bertuzzi wants back in

The agent for Todd Bertuzzi has formally applied to the NHL to have his client reinstated. This comes as no surprise especially given the fact that the lockout has no end in sight and Bertuzzi may want to set his sights on Europe as a locale to apply his trade.

Here's the NHL chief legal officer, Bill Daly:
"We have indicated to Morris that, provided the players' association has no objection to the commissioner acting on Todd's request, the commissioner would be prepared to move forward with such a meeting."
The NHLPA will not object to any such meeting.
"A player such as Todd Bertuzzi can, at the appropriate time and in the appropriate manner, petition the league to have his status reviewed," said an unidentified NHLPA spokesperson.
