At least Bergfors 'had' a good streak of scoring over a 25-game stretch, we could use that in a short season, if it's Butler or whomever.
I'm not insulting Bergfors at all. He played his part. More of the fact of this fan base, that expects guaranteed production from him as if he is a Kovalchuk waiting down there that Lou refuses to bring up.

The reason Lou has him in the minors is because he and his crew don't believe he is NHL material right now.
