Bergeron played with heart last year, he took the body more than I expected and he played hurt for a long time (good on him, bad on the coaching staff leaving him out there hurt, unable to produce). Much like Dandenault and Bouillon, he is a good guy with heart who makes an acceptable 6-7th defenceman. Definitely not someone you want playing significant non-PP minutes.
Hmm, so I guess my conclusion was that he looked worse than he was on the ice, but he had a worse impact than his stats showed. A game-changer on the PP, though, he forced other teams to change their systems to block his shot.
How can you put MAB and Bouillon in the same boat? Bouillon can hold his own as a #4-5 d-man on most NHL teams. MAB can contribute on the PP and is a liability 5 on 5 on defense. MAB is terrible defensively while Bouillon is at least average.
