I know he isn't good defensively, but he did somehow manage to be +5 last year in minny, where everyone else was a minus on defence. and he did manage to score 14 goals. Nobody wants him because he fits into that 7th defenceman/4th line forward pp specialist role that only desperate teams need. Guess what, we're desperate. I'm surprised people cry about not having Streit anymore, and yet think this guy will epic fail here. If Streit could excel in that kind of role here, why can't Bergeron? And if you say something like, "Well Streit is way better now", why on earth cant Bergeron improve defensively as well? They are practically the same age. All im saying is that with the right role, i think bergeron could fit well here.
