Bergevin has been here for not even one full season.
My point is that critiquing Bergevin for a lack of big moves in a transitional year is quite ridiculous.
If he doesn't do anything to fix some of our issues this summer and throughout the year, then I'll understand the discontent. However, he already initiated his rebuild, trading away an aging vet signed for an extra 2years for an upcoming UFA, bought out Gomez, made Kaberle sit all season and will either move or buy him out. So there's no doubt he initiated the process so no reason to doubt him really for now.
Bergevin's best move would be to trade for a more patient fan base. He still hasn't so I've lost faith.
