In Response to Re: Bergeron's production
[QUOTE]I think this is less about a Bergeron love fest, and more about his utilization on the team. I think Bruins management could use to read both of these articles. I personally think Bergeron has the potential to be a ppg player if given the proper talent on his wings. He will continue to provide his great defensive play, but will produce much more in that role.

This I completely agree with. Add another top6 winger to this team that can really score some points. I saw this list somewhere
Daniel Alfredsson, Rene Bourque, Shane Doan, Ales Hemsky, Jarome Iginla, Brendan Morrow, Zack Parise, Vinny Prospal, Toumo Ruutu, Kyle Turris, Kris Versteeg and Ray Whitney
If there was someone like that in the top6 I could see that strengthening Bergy's line enough to increase is point production. For sh!ts lets say they acquire Doan(should be good for around 60pts on a crappy yotes team).
You then can roll
The last 2 years Recchi put up an avg 45 points. So if we assume doan scores 5 more playing with bergy we have a player with 20more points than Recchi playing on Bergy's line. This in turn should add around 10-12 points for Bergeron. Also assuming Marchand puts up 55pts this year then we can add another 5-10 pts again for Bergeron. Im assuming with better players Bergy scores more goals and gets more assists.
Based on this assumption Bergeron scores 15 or more points then the previous year. Breaking the 70 pt barrier. Kesler finished last year with 66 points.
Id say if there was another legit top six scoring threat added to the line up it is not unreasonable at all to have bergeron win the Selke trophy. Again this is all hypothetical and I dont think that Bergeron playing with Rex last year was a bad thing (hey we won right?) but I think playing with a younger better scoring threat would really up his point totals without taking away from the defensive aspect that makes him a selke nominee.
