I totally agree. The players like Begin, Komisarek, O'Byrne would hit him so hard. Its a plan that his career finish that young and became another Lindros.

And unfortunately, I hope we'll hit him cleanly but like another player. That team is dumb enough to risk a career, we'll don't hold back.

Again, if it happens what a stupid move by a team in panic mode already....Let's risk a career 'cause we cannot lose a series against our rivals. What would be best, losing against the Habs like they're suppose to do and still maybe in the process losing Bergeron as well. Or rest him more than he has, build a better team next year and have a chance for the division with a healthy Bergeron....Sometimes....

Anyway, whoever, whatever they want to throw at us, won't make a difference....or maybe, I thought Habs in 5, I'll give you Habs in 6.....
Exactly!

Personally I'm glad he's back playing hockey. He took a hit that shouldn't be allowed and it's a terrible thing to see these kind of head injuries.

I know it's the playoffs, folks, but it *is* just a game, and we're talking about a potentially life-threatening injury. I for one am happy that he's regained his health and can continue his career.

It's a risk going into the playoffs, that's for sure, but the kid is a warrior and like any player he wants to play. I doubt the Habs will take it easy on him (far from it), but again, it's a person's own choice, once the team gives you the green light.

Good for him, and hopefully we beat the snot out of his team quickly so he doesn't risk his neck for the sake of winning this year. Will it improve the Bruins? Absolutely. Does it change the dynamic of the series? Unlikely.

To the people calling the B's team stupid or blaming them for putting Bergeron in:

Grow up, they're a hockey franchise, they are expected to win just as we are. They will ice their best players in the playoffs so long as they are willing to give 100% for the win. We wouldn't expect any less of a commitment from Le Tricolore.

No. He signed for 5 years last year. (I assume you're referring to Bergeron. BTW Bergeron was a Nordiques fan growing up and he hates the habs so hardly a perfect fit.)

He's been skating (non-contact) for a couple of months now.

Don't worry hunny, I was joking. It was merely bait

I don't think this is a good idea for him, he won't be at the top of his game and if he keeps his head down, O'byrne or Komisarek could very well end his career. Or at least, I hope they don't show any sympathy, the Bruins didn't against Koivu and rightfully so.

That said, bring it on!

I wouldn't say that. B's very rarely lost more than 2 games in a row during this season. Thomas usually has very good game avter average/bad one.

A hockey club also has to take into consideration the health of its players. If Bergeron plays well then of course he is an asset. But what happens if he gets hit and gets another concussion? His career might be over. This isn't a regular season game and I expect the habs to play even harder than during the regular season. Bergeron is coming back when competition is at its fiercest.

Well he has not played the Habs on back-to-back games so that might change

Somehow I firmly believe hockey professionals have more knowledge and experience than you. It's not us B's fans who make a decision.

thats just plain dumb. a concussion is not an injury to the god damn legs: we know that he can skate!!! I had a concussion and still feel the effects 4 years later (yes, to a lesser extent, but stilll...)
I could have skated "non-contact" two days after the event...the fact that he's been skating "non-contact" "for months" means 0 as far as his health is concerned...the real test would be a good bodycheck by his teammates, see how the head reacts...

Yes anything can happen in the playoffs with both sides. Maybe he'll become Berlin Wall.

Just like when Lindros was brought back by the "professional" Flyers staff? We'll see if you have the same opinion if Bergeron gets knocked out again.

B's are not in a position to win a Cup, so no need to rush Bergy. If they'll clear him it'll indicate that he is ready.

Ya keep telling yourself that the Bruins wouldn't rush one of their best players recovery this season. Especially against a team they haven't beaten this season and are playing against during the playoffs.

you obviously never had a concussion. a concussion of his grade CANNOT be totally healed with some months. it is actually 10-18 months at the least

Bergeron will definitely be a huge boost for the team...and for those who thinks he will not, if he only plays for our PP, our numbers should increase drastically from regular season...
He will play only if he is cleared by the medical staff, and he will allways be at risk for another concussion, next october he will be at risk too, so let's play him if he's ready....and if begin or komi have the great idea of putting the guy down, watch kovi out for the series and no cup hopes for the habs....Hope the habs wont be playing that stupid game....

You should recheck your beliefs, this wouldn't be the first time an athlete came too soon only to suffer the consequences and its not always the staffs fault.

I hope that Bergeron is alright, we've seen players rushed in too soon.

But, good news for him, the series will be short.

Bergeron has apparently lost like 25 pounds of muscle and looks frail from reports I've read. I'm not too worried.
I hears the Canadiens are bringing Pierre Bouchard back so Lucic can say hello to him like Jonathan did in '78

I was just about to post that exact thought. While I trust the doctors, I hope that Bergeron is truly ready to play before he comes back. It's not worth it if he isn't.

First head shot he gets his brain will explode... Not so sure it's a good thing for a player who wasn't able to walk back in december to come back that early...

Anyway. I really want thursday to come fast, so Bruins players and Bruins fans can see who's the soft team.
