The Anaheim Ducks have placed forward Todd Bertuzzi on waivers for the purpose
buying out his contract, Sportsnet has learned.

I have to admit I am a bit surprised by this development. Bertuzzi was entering the last year of his contract and the Ducks aren't exactly loaded with offense up front. Nonetheless, Bertuzzi was overpaid last season and would have been overpaid this season, so I guess Brian Burke wants the financial flexibility (especially with Niedermayer returning) to make a couple more moves.
