yzerman and babcock understand guys like Seguin are important, thats why they chose bergeron over guys like Spezza in the 2010 games.
His time was limited but it was valued and theres no wonder why he is a triple gold winner. Seguin could easily be that next type of guy.
Taveras wil have to compete with Iginla, Heatly, Getzlaf for a job. Seguin will have to compete with 4th line wingers and centers.
Are you saying Seguin should be on the team due to his great defensive play and penalty killing? That's a new one.
And as far as Bergeron goes, I wouldn't take him again. He's a good player, great defensively, but we just DON'T need him. He was lost at both ends of the ice in 2010, and just looked like he didn't belong. The need for a player of his skillset diminishes with the big ice, no need to make the same mistake twice. The notion we need defensive "specialists" is absurd to me. The notion we need defensive "specialists" is absurd.
