Tanguay vs Bergeron

Two guys from quebec, done this thread last year and without anyone stating a reason, Bergeron won by a landslide. Will the same thing happen? Vote.

Both are somewhat soft and tend to be invisible for long stretches, Bergeron is better defensively but his offense is gone. Gotta go with Tanguay.

Alex Tanguay, really good player. Whatever team gets him will get one of the most under-rated players in the game.

Wow, I'm amazed to see how the value of these two has completely dropped.

Bergeron is vastly overrated.

To a poster who can't spell "lazy", Bergeron's apparently a "Franchise player".

I could see why people would pick Tanguay, but to say Bergeron is soft, well when I hear that, I think the player doesn't hit or want to be hit, and that is simply not true, Bergeron is a good hitter. If by soft, you mean he had 2 concussions, I can't argue.

Bergeron was slowly getting his game back or at least it seemed that way at the end of the year last year. To say Bergeron's offense is gone, I would say that is a little premature, but we will see next year.

Right now Bergeron is too much of a risk. I think playing alongside Sturm and Recchi next season will really up his offense but it's just too hard to tell. He definitely showed flashes of his old self late last season. He's still great at the faceoff dot and defensively too. I think I'm just going to abstain to this poll because I feel like Bergeron can put up numbers next season with Sturm and Recchi. However, it's too much of a risk and at least with Tanguay, you know what you're going to get.

And I laughed when people said he's "soft." Obviously you haven't watched Bergeron play very much. Unless you're calling him soft after getting brutally hit from behind into the boards for his first concussion. And his second concussion, uhh, did you not notice that Bergeron was the one INITIATING THE CONTACT?! It's not like he's going to shy away from a hit, even after a very serious concussion...

I was at that game too. I've got video of it but its buried at the end of the highlights from the rest of the game (including one where Bergeron goes hard to the net to score a goal and gets hammered after).

Injury prone /= soft. And I don't believe that he's injury prone, but at least an argument can be made.
