[QUOTE]In Response to Re: The Captaincy : So do you still believe I'm overrating Bergeron when I say he's world class? Earlier this year you couldn't believe I would have the gall to include him in the same sentence as Datsyuk. I think they're very similar in skill set with Bergeron currently holding a 7 year edge(and I think Datsyuk is awesome).

Making the Canadian Olympic team, even as the last player (among arguments,) probably makes him "world class" in my book.
I absolutely love Bergeron and he brings so many things to the table. However, even though he's similar to Datsyuk in that they are such strong 2 way players, Bergie isnt in the same universe as Datsyuk in offensive skill. Not close.
And while I believe Bergeron would be a superb Captain, I think Chara is better. Much more visually the leader out there, intimidating, far and away the Bruins MVP, absolutely essential. Look how bad it was missing Bergeron... but it would be far worse without Chara.
Classy, professional, the B's are lucky to have him as a leader.
I'd also point point out that its my guess the thread starter MADE UP that BS about it being in his contract, so Im not sure it even deserves a response.
