"I don't see how his defensive skills will translate that well to big ice". BS. Where is this coming from? What specifically won't translate?


Bergeron is a winner. All he does is win, and he's a dominant two-way force. In 2010, he was a shell of his former (and future) self, mainly because of injuries, but he was STILL included on the team. That speaks volumes of what kind of player he is, and what Hockey Canada thinks of him.

Since then, he's won a Cup, a Selke, soon to be a 2nd Selke and taken his game to another level.

Bergeron is locked and loaded, and ready to be unleashed.
We've disagreed in the past Mandy, but everything you say above I completely agree with.

Faidh is in the (small) minority position here, and the onus is on him to prove that guys like Skinner, Benn, and Duchene are better-suited for Team Canada than Bergeron.
