08:23 AM ET 11.27 | Todd Bertuzzi, skating with a handful of Red Wings teammates Monday, may have already moved on mentally. "No, not very optimistic," Bertuzzi said about a deal being struck. "I see us losing a year. So you just move on to different things." The Players Association appeared to move closer to the owners' position last week, but quickly was shot down. Commissioner Gary Bettman said the league presented its best offer a month ago, and with the continuing losses of the lockout, a better offer isn't forthcoming. ... Bertuzzi has noticed the dwindling amount of Wings players at the optional skates. "I'm pretty sure it's going to start slowing down," he said. "We were five-on-five, then three-on-three, you start to see a trend here. We'll see what happens."

From what I gather, the only position Wal-mart might offer this misguided soul is late-night stocker...

Bertuzzi like everyone else seems to be dawning to the reality that is.

Welcome, Sir, now get in line, you've got to wait just like the rest of us...

He has his thoughts about it but .... doesn't want to be fined for sharing them.
