This is a great read Why Boston Bruins star Patrice Bergeron is still underappreciated After mulling it for a couple seconds, Scott Gordon came up with two possible answers to the question Patrice Bergeron’s coaches rarely have to ask themselves: “What the hell is Bergy doing?” When Gordon had Bergeron with the American Hockey League’s Providence Bruins in 2004–05, the latter was an NHL-proven talent with no big league to play in thanks to a work stoppage that obliterated the entire season. As such, Bergeron was down on the farm ensuring that when labour peace was struck, he’d be even better than the 18-year-old version who’d surprisingly pushed his way onto the Boston Bruins as a second-round draft pick a season earlier. Gordon was already convinced Bergeron had a bright future. Among other things, he’d observed the youngster jump-start the Baby Bruins’ sagging power play when they tried him on the point. Perhaps most impressively, Bergeron displayed zero sense of entitlement after a year of chartered flights and five-star hotels in the NHL.
