I'd take Patty B on my team any day of the week and twice on Sunday!!
Bergeron is one of the best Center in the league. He's the best on faceoffs. He's up there with Datsyuk and Toews as far as two-way centers go.

Come and tell me he deserves to start before Stamkos, Tavares, Toews, Thornton, Staal and Getzlaf.
The first two were too young to make that team back then, and the rest were all on that team. Team Canada had 11 centers I believe last olympics, Stamkos and Tavares will most likely play the wing, it's no biggie. I'm not sure Thornton will make the team again, but he'll be in the discussion, definitely. Bergeron is a lock for that team.
