Dare i say it but i'm talking Doug Gilmour at his best here
That's blasphemous, at least in the eyes of Leafs fans.
That said, I personally don't think he's reached that level yet. Gilmour was playing Selke-caliber defensive hockey AND hitting the top-5 in NHL scoring at his peak ('92-'94). Bergeron has the defensive aspect covered, but he needs to score a bit more IMO to reach Dougie's level, though acknowledging that he's playing in a pretty stifling defensive system under Julien.
