    Personally, i'd have to say Bergeron. But, i'm a fan of his so my opinion is most likely a little jaded.

    There is a pretty big difference in age between the 2 as well. Zetterberg is 25 now. Bergeron is only 20.

    Better career? No question Bergeron.

    Bergeron will play for 20 years, IMO. He'll be an amazing two-way player and a playoff warrior who can lead. Stick him with great linemates he'll produce huge numbers or have him on the 3rd line and he'll shut someone down. This why he'll play for a long time because he's got the talent to can do it all and naturally knows the game. The guy was born to play hockey.

    Zetterberg will be an up and down offensive player throughout his career.

    In my opinion, Bergeron. I think that Zetterberg is more skilled offensively, but Bergeron is more versatile, has one ofthe best on-ice vision, he has more heart, better team player, etc... Bergeron is really a player that the bruins should be happy to have. There's not a lot of players like him, while he may not be a franchise player, he's an important puzzle to a winning team.

    actually zetterberg is not particularly skilled offensively aside from his phenomenal on-ice vision and willingness to be a team player

    I'm a habs fan and i'm not confident in Bergeron capability to keeps improving a lot from his special first year (he will, but by how much?). (obviously, this non-confidence is coming from my habs-view of things but i cant do much about it :) )

    But i'd pick Bergeron over Zetterberg without a question. Again, Zetterberg makes it easy, he have yet to impressed me. We'll see how he play this year. I feel like he can improved a bit, but i dont know why: i dont see him with that much of an upside. I'll probably be wrong on this one again, but we'll see.

    After seeing him against MTL in last playoffs and again at World juniors... Bergeron seems to be Da-Man

    Hopefully Latendresse will be our similar draft steal. ;)

    Zetterberg is about as complete i think a center and teamplayer can be. And will be able to produce very well in NHL as well. He did win SEL-scoring last season, and he did have some stiff competition.

    But I´d take Bergeron as well. Producing that well as a juniorplayer in NHL is really good and he probably has more offensive potential.

    I will pick Zetterberg. He will get a chance to play lots of minutes this year. He will get allot of points in my opinion.

    Bergeron. He is 5 years younger and already contributing more, I dont expect that to change. But Zetterberg will be an awesome player too, just not as good.

    Bergeron. To contribute so young - he does all the little things that coaches and team-mates love.
     
  17. I'd choose Bergeron as well.
    But damn. Some of these comments have been ridiculous.

    Zetterberg's whole game involves vision. I find it hard to believe that Bergeron could have better hockey sense than Zetterberg, who doesn't have a great shot or great speed, yet is still a very dangerous player.

    I also wonder about those who say Bergeron has more heart.

    Based on what?

    Zetterberg is one of the hardest working players in the NHL. He goes into the corners and battles, despite his lack of size.
    So I'm not sure where anyone gets off saying Bergeron has more heart.

    I'm in the minority in thinking that Bergeron will not get much better than he already is. Having said that, he will have the better career because he is 5 years younger. Their skills are about the same.

    personally i would take zetterberg, not all players progress at a steady rate, bergeron imo will plateau very soon on the offensive side while improving on intangibles and the defensive.. i see him as a great 2nd liner.. but not first..

    id have to agree as well, tho i think zetterberg will have a lot of success too tho
     
  22. Playoff warriors aren't made they're impact players from the start. You can look at Yzerman, Sakic, Forsberg, Lidstrom, and Stevens as perfect examples.

    I don't care because they aren't prospects.

    On a serious note: Bergeron.
