My point for all year has been we need to stop comparing him to such great players bc we are setting him up to fail.

He's not that great offensively. And other than a 9 game stretch, he has proved that.
Bergeron wasn't in the defensive role he currently assumes when he first came into the league. His competition wasn't close to Couturier's at the same age.

Just check his point totals as he gets more responsibility. They drop accordingly.

As for your last line, are you really shutting the book on a 21 year old?
