It makes sense, really. Bergeron is probably the odd man out with the Lightning, especially when Brendan Mikkelson is healthy and having Gudas/Barberio in the AHL, while the Sens add a veteran d-man who can pound the puck from the point. It would also fit GM Bryan Murray's MO of looking for a player without losing anyone from his roster.

Stamkos Intolerant 02-19-2013 06:56 PM

Take him please. I don't understand the love affair coaching has had with him the last couple of seasons.

I'm fine with that, if we are in playoff position we keep him and if we bomb we will still need bodies. If we start falling we can assume Gonchar will be gone by the deadline

Late pick or meh prospect. Maybe even future considerations which amount to nothing.

Freudian 02-19-2013 06:56 PM

So they're giving up on the season and going for the tank?

i love that value

BonkTastic 02-19-2013 06:58 PM

On the bright side, if we were to bring in Bergeron, at least other posters on HFBoards will finally be correct when they say that our offensive defenceman can't play defense.

La Flame 02-19-2013 06:59 PM

Eh why not.

The Macho Man 02-19-2013 07:00 PM

Tampa has to add IMO.

:sarcasm:

Godot 02-19-2013 07:01 PM

Would help the PP.

Too bad he's a trainwreck in any other situation.

allkill326 02-19-2013 07:01 PM

He's a good offensive D. He can be the future mini-Byfuglien.

Emerica 02-19-2013 07:02 PM

Please no

You would think so wouldn't you?

JayP812 02-19-2013 07:05 PM

Not really the ideal replacement for Karlsson...

Why not? They're both about as good defensively...




I kid, I kid.

Do Make Say Think 02-19-2013 07:07 PM

The man who single handedly prevented his own team from winning the Stanley Cup...

Honestly I'd rather the Senators not take him on because using assets on acquiring this guy seems like a giant waste.

Rschmitz 02-19-2013 07:08 PM

You know the point in the game when you have all of the momentum, your keeping the puck in the other teams zone, your winning all of the board battles, and getting quality shots? Sending MAB out there instantly destroys that flow, he'll mess up a pass, fall down, get beat, or stop and watch.

We don't even need him for the PP. Take him, anything we can get back is icing.

Analyzer* 02-19-2013 07:08 PM

Bergeron's shot is surprisingly accurate. Or at least it was.

SixthSens 02-19-2013 07:10 PM

... because this wouldn't totally go against the three year re-build. I hope to hell we don't waste an asset on him.

Future? The guy is ancient.

SammyTheBull 02-19-2013 07:11 PM

Anything to help the tank.

There is no ideal replacement. Liles from Toronto would be a good option.

He can still play for 7 more years... come on...

HavlatMach9 02-19-2013 07:13 PM

Poor man Karlsson? Smaller than EK, slower than EK, but a shot like EK. That's not so bad.
