Bunting is an asshat that I would still not like even if he donned the a Red Wings sweater. Also I think he’s a product of who he plays with and would not be productive here.

I love Bert, but not with a 6 year term.
Bunting is like Marchand without the top end skill...you get all the negative of Marchand without much of the positive. Like Sean Avery, i don't think Bunting would last long here and probably wouldn't be worth his salary since we don't have Matthews and Marner to pump up his stats.

I wouldn't mind getting Bert back but it would depend on how long the contract is. He is already injury prone with the way he plays and that likely won't get better with age.

What will Bunting do away from all that Toronto talent?
Feels like we'd be paying 50-point money for a guy who scores 30 in Detroit.
