In the Soviet-Canada series of 1972 the indispensable player proved to be Paul Henderson rather than several more celebrated stars. Apparently you lack sufficient appreciation of Bergeron. He's great defensively and perhaps the best faceoff man in the NHL. A number of teams that'll compete at Sochi are capable of scoring when they have puck possession, but surely you already know that.
Well, duh. Of course Jagr wouldn't compensate for Bergeron's loss. They don't even play the same position, and the former is a 40 years old forward who is now as unidimensional (while great at what he does) as they come.
As for taking Bergeron before Thornton, Staal or Getzlaf, well good for you. I definitely wouldn't.
