This is true, but, considering injuries that may make it necessary to put Bergeron back on defense, who would you pair him up with? With the home team getting the last line change, you have to be careful with this so you don't have two somewhat weak defense men on the ice at the same time to possibly be taken advantage off. Although his defensive game has improved, I'm still not all that comfortable when he's out there in a key situation.
