Well, your mistake is seeing him as a strictly defensive forward. He's not a Zamuner, Draper, or Doan. Bergeron is the #1 center and near-PPG leading scorer on one of the best teams in the NHL. He can hang with the big boys offensively and obviously contribute a great deal defensively as well. He's the king of well-rounded, two-way player that Hockey Canada loves. He'll certainly be on the team before someone like Benn, Skinner, Duchene, or Neal, and I'd go so far as to call him a lock at this point.
