Zinovjev-Bergeron-Green

Zinovjev appears ready for the Bruins by the noise we hear from Providence.
Bergeron is the leading rookie of the NHL at this point.
Green does not seem to be making the job aside Samsonov at this point and some say that he is not a 2nd line centerman.
Rolston and Axelsson are playing Bergeron with them as a winger and are very fond of him and your 3rd line is doing as well or even better than your 2nd line.
If Boston recalls Zinovjev, where is he gonna play?
Things would not be so complicated if Bergeron was not performing so well or if Zinovjev was not adapting that well to AHL and NA.
The truth is that youth is pushing hard in the back of some vets.
As far as I can recall, I always heard of Bergeron as a centerman and a playmaker: he is doing great as a winger, just imagine him as a centeman!
In two games time, Bergeron will, have to stay or be sent back to Junior.
Zinovjev will have to decide if he wants to go back to Siberia, the Bruins will have to decide if they want to try him with the big team and the Bruins will have to decide which is ready for centering line 2 .
Will Bergeron be victim of the numbers crunch? I hope not because I am pretty sure that he is one main ticket to the future.
