Report: Red Wings GM Steve Yzerman, Tyler Bertuzzi fail to reach agreement

According to reports, Detroit Red Wings general manager Steve Yzerman and Tyler Bertuzzi have not reached a settlement and it is looking like the arbitration hearing will begin.

On Friday, both the Red Wings ($3.15 million) and Bertuzzi ($4.25 million) filed their offers with the arbitration meeting being scheduled for Sunday. The two sides had two days to work out a deal amongst themselves before going to an arbitration hearing.

Following the hearing, a final decision will be made within 48 hours. The Red Wings would then have the option to accept the decision.



Detroit Red Wings restricted free agent forward Tyler Bertuzzi filed for salary arbitration earlier in the month, and now we have some hard numbers to look at.

According to hockey insider Elliotte Friedman, the Red Wings have offered forward Bertuzzi $3.15 million in salary arbitration, Bertuzzi countered with $4.25 million.

He just finished a two-year contract worth an AAV of $1.4 million.

For those who may still be a bit unfamiliar with how this process works, keep on reading.

Bertuzzi’s arbitration hearing is scheduled for October 25; the two sides are still able to reach an agreement before then. Should that not happen, a decision will be made by the arbiter and will be announced within 48 hours of the hearing.

Any decision by the arbiter would be for a one-year pact between the two. The Red Wings would have the option of signing Bertuzzi to the said deal, or walking away from it.
