2010/03/06 Missed 2 games (groin).
2010/01/18 Missed 6 games (broken right thumb).
2009/04/16 Missed 2 games (right foot injury).
2009/01/27 Missed 15 games (concussion).
2008/04/21 Missed the last 72 games of the regular season and 7 playoffs games (concussion).
2007/02/24 Missed 5 games (lower body injury).
2004/03/23 Missed 11 games (shoulder injury).

Not listed:

2011-12 Season - Injury last playoffs (torn rib cage? - 0 games missed) that probably cost the B's at least a 2nd round appearance.
2012-13 Season - Current injury (Hand? - 2 games)

(...)

Obviously good that this isn't concussion related but let's not downplay Bergeron's history while freaking out about Rask's.
That's not really a bad injury record apart from the concussions. Not sure I follow your train of thought. A handful of missed games here and there does not constitute an injury problem. When a player regularly misses 10-20-30 game chunks you start to worry.

The concussions are worrying, yes, but they need to be separated from the "wear and tear" injuries, which Bergy does not seem to suffer a lot from. At least not in terms of missing games.
