What I always loved about Bergeon is that he will do whatever he's asked to and will do it well. If the coaching staff asked him to open up his game, I don't doubt that we'd see more production from him.

The way the team generates offense, and has for a while now, is from tight defensive coverage and taking advantage of miscues. IMO this offensive philosophy is part of why they have trouble on the PP- the rest of their game is designed to grind out chances, when they're a man up they need to rethink the entire apporach.

Always felt that line has been driven by Bergeron and Marchand and that Seguin was a complimentary player. His game is just tuned to a different frequency. Recchi was so effective in that spot, despite his decaying wheels, because he had the same smart/grind out chances game. Got to think Seguin would better thrive in the time and space a guy like Krejci creates.
