    I'd take Bergeron, but I still think Vermette has a lot of offensive upside.

    I'd take Vermette, he has a lot of untapped offensive potential.

    Vermette for me! Smarter player, smarter guy, fast as hell, great hands and offensive potential and plays well in a checking role. If he had more ice time in Ottawa, he could rack the points imo. I wish the habs had him.

    Oh. In that case I'd say that no player will come close to the Golden Guy! :handclap:

    I would take them both on my team. Bergeron will have better opportunities in Boston. There are a lot of good forwards on Ottawa and it may take Vermette longer to reach his potential. However I would not be surprised to see Vermette traded at some point by Ottawa.

    I doubt it. A fast, hard-working, young C/LWer who isn't afraid of physical play isn't exactly the type of player Ottawa would want to trade away.

    He almost got traded to Washington last spring plus Muckler is also known for not being high on french speaking players. I agree with your assessment though that he is not the type of player Ottawa would want to trade away.

    That was a rumour..I believe Muckler didn't make that move specifically because Vermette was going to be involved. I know for a fact he's high on him cause he's said so in the past :)
     
  19. Bergeron is a C/RW who also isn't afraid of physical play(Varada and Volchenkov can tell you that ;) ) who works his butt off every night.

    You're mistaking physical with cheap.

    Running Volchenkov from behind wasn't physical. It was cheap.

    It'll be nice to see Volchenkov destroy the little weasel in one of the six matchups the teams will have every year.
     
  21. If you watched many Bruins games, you would have saw that he was physical. Nice try though.

    I'd probably take Bergeron at this point, although they're similar players in many ways. Bergeron is younger, but his track record isn't quite as impressive. I was quite impressed with him every time I saw him last year though, but the same can be said for Vermette.

    I'd be worried if I was Patrice. Having an amazing open ice monster like Volchenkov and a cheap ******* like Varada gunning for you isnt a situation i'd like to be in.
     
  24. Then they should be worried about Boynton and Lapointe who know how to dish it out as well. ;)
