    Missed 16 games but is trailing only Kucherov, McDavid, Kane, Rantanen, Gaudreau and MacKinnon for points per game.

    NHL.com - Stats

    He's also the only one of those players to skate a regular PK shift, which drops his ES TOI well below the others (4:59 ES TOI less than McDavid per game at the high end, 2:02 ES TOI less than Kucherov at the low end).

    It's weird how he got better in his 30s.

    Top 5 center in the league, arguably the 3rd best center of the cap era depending on how much you value underlying numbers and defensive play.

    Truly an amazing player. I'm a stickler for older players but I have Bergeron as the best defensive centre ever.

    No mere mortal, he is the best matchup center out there.

    If I just listed points per game people would have said why not list points. 51 points doesn't tell the whole story but it's best to list both.

    Had the shackles taken off. Julien didn’t have much of a choice near the end. Cassidy has just continued to ride that horse.

    Too bad he’s been hurt for long stretches the past two years. Would’ve had some Hart votes for sure

    #1 defensive center in the league, certainly.

    Top 5 I’d say over all.

    Seems like everyone had the same thought as I did: Bergeron is a top-5 center in the league. Production alone puts him near the top; his brains & vision put him among the very elite.

    It depends less on Bergevin than on the need of other NHL GMs to gain cap space. There's a good chance a worthwhile player will become available at an attractive price, thereby improving the Habs' playoff opportunities. Unfortunately, other Atlantic Division teams will have similaropportunities. I'd like to eliminate Shaw nd Hudon and gain a dependable LDman. That need is so apparent that I'd consider trading Suzuki (but not Poehling or Primeau). Why exempt Primeau? The Habs could use a younger backup goaltender than Niemi.

    Major concussion affected his peak. Also, always taking great care of his health/shape helped for longevity.

    A hell of a player and one of the only guys on the Bruins I respect.

    Fitting that he’s just barely above Point on that PPG list as I think Point could well be the Bergeron of the next generation.

    I don't know about ranking but I'd like Bergie and Marchand (that awesome *****ebag) on the pens any day of the week.

    We'll give you Jack Johnson.

    No need to thank us

    Bergeron is up there with the elites of the league easily top 10 player for the past few years.

    He’s the type of center that you win playoff series and championships with.

    Top5 Center for me.
