    He's better about it I think also. Still wouldn't trade him straight up for Bergeron, though

    Bergy gets the shaft on the 3 Stars of the Month for October. Sure those players had a great month but where's the respect for the 15 yr vet, best two-way forward in the league, 4 time selke award winner and 2nd in the league in scoring for the month of October in leading the Bruins to a 7-3-2 record.

    I can understand it on the surface level. Leader for points, points per game, and goals. But yeah, when you think about all of the other elements, kind of sucks.

    But so typical. Bruins get very little love in the media outside of Boston, and sometimes very little love in town too :laugh:

    4 giveaways all year so far. Not even sure how that's possible with his ice time.

    I was kind of hoping he was delivering a letter from McQuaid. :)

    But this was cute. The kid who sent the card has a rather interesting combination of favorite teams :laugh:

    I love how Bergy had to pause before chuckling a bit. Such a cool thing to see.

    Hey everybody, I am posting this question in the Bergeron thread because my question is specifically about him but I can see how this may morph into something more.

    So, I was chatting with my friends (all Leafs fans) about the Bruins-Leafs rivalry and I was busting their chops about Bergy being a Leafs killer. This lead to them asking me where Bergy stands among beloved Boston athletes. I'm from Toronto and the Bruins are the only Boston-area team that I cheer for so I have a bias there.

    I'm curious as to where Bostonians place Bergy among their most beloved. Perhaps not all-time but maybe in the last 15-20 years. I'm sure Brady is in a class all by himself but who follows? Is Bergy there with guys like Pedro and Ortiz? I'm guessing not because the Sox are king and they were key guys when "the curse" was broken. Just wondering since it came up when we were shooting the you-know-what.

    Depends on who you talk to. I think a hardcore Bruins fan would say bergy is as important to the bruins as Brady to the Patriots. The casual fan who follows the 4 major teams would probably have him lower though

    Bergy to me is a hair below Bourque.

    In another 4-5 years, probably on par with Bourque.

    So the truth comes out... Bergy's been faking an injury so he could there for his wife during labor. :sarcasm:

    No doubt :sarcasm:

    But his wife's pain tolerance probably puts his to shame :laugh:

    Can we please sign the newest Bergeron to an entry level deal so that in 18 years we have the Bergeron Brothers headlining this team?

    Congrats Patrice and Stephanie!

    Well....when Bergeron comes back, we know what that means. Time for a goal to get another puck to go next to Zack's!!!

    Silver lining to his injury. Was able to be there for the birth of his child and will get some quality time at home.

    I guess we can all come to an agreement that Bergeron is the teams MVP.... team offense has gone downhill, PK downhill, PP downhill and even Marchand, PAsta game has suffered quite a bit

    This is almost like an Bergeron appreciation post.... please come back ASAP?
    :ha:

    Lol I just imagine Dore being like all of Bruins HF to the rest of HF. "No seriously, you guys just don't understand how good he is. **** your stats!"

    Since PB went down, I think Bruins are playing for .500.

    Is Bergeron the longest tenured player with one team nowadays? Meaning he played his first game with the same team longest ago.
