A statue next to Bobby Orr’s: What can you say about Bergeron? He is the heartbeat of the Bruins. What he did last year in the Stanley Cup Final — playing with torn cartilage in his side, a broken rib, and a punctured lung — was almost barbaric, but that is the kind of teammate Bergeron is. He is as consistent a player in all three zones as there is in the National Hockey League. He is a leader who leads by example and has been doing it for a long time. One day his jersey will be high above the ice level, but let’s work on getting this guy a statue, too.
