He's a 50/50 guy, just like Zach. Tedenby has described his game the same way.

I have to keep myself grounded when thinking about these 3 guys on the same team, but damn....

I still can't figure out how Lou keeps finding these gems in the lower half of the first round. Parise at 17, Zajac at 20, Bergfors at 23. Corrente looks to be a solid middle pairing guy and he was drafted 30th. Our scouts truly are amazing.

And thank all that is holy for Shanahan, Stevens, and the Blues' tampering, because otherwise we wouldn't have Parise.

They keep drafting on character, that's how, they find these guys that haven't peaked yet, realize they are the hardest working players in the draft and they pick them. Then guess what, they work their ass off and get better. That's what I think is happening, or Lou is a magician.

Drafting in the first round is not science but for the most part you get a player that will have some type of impact on your roster in years to come. A team has success with drafting in the later rounds. not just the first round

No he's not. Elias is a much better skater than Bergfors and is more creative with the puck.

bergfors is more like parise. both quick skaters, very slippery, can stop and start very fast, very good along the boards and quick releases and amazing hands. also both very very hard workers

You are not reading deeply enough into what i said!

Have to read the whole thread now...I knew this kid was good he impressed me on his sniping to the high right side, but after watching the replay of his first goal against Philly yesterday WOW this guy can skate and play hockey. He is the phantom return of Sergei Brylin but 2.0 and with rockets on his skates. He dips past three Flyers amazed by his sweet hands and then crashes the net and follows up. He even skates like Sergei but with better hands and the same arms up celebration!

You all know how imporant Brylin was with timely goals and 100% effort so imagine this kid with the awareness to just take over games like that. It should be ESPN top play buy this country frowns upon New Jersey's politics and how MTV makes us look. We have some of the best young talent in the league and more to come. Imagine Tedenby and Bergfors in a 2-1...and by that point Bergie will be old enough and hopefully wise enough to rise to Elias level. And we all know how good that is. 300 goals on a "defensive boring trapping" team and 3 rings and some serious leadership is nothing to overlook in today's NHL.

----------------------

I think he's a Brylin type player in terms of what he will mean to this team. If you can look back in history and think of some of the most loyal and hardworking Devils, who also scored timely goals, Sergei is on top of the list. Now Bergie has the ability to be what Sergei Brought to the team but with better hands and faster skates. Aka faster and more talented. All he has to do is mature a little and raise his awareness, and he can be what alot of us wanted Sergei to be.

Anything more to me would be getting my hopes too high too soon but you have to understand I'm not simply talking in terms of the obvious differences. I'm talking about the intangible aspect of having that quiet guy on your team who can show flashes of brilliance at times, and can provide clutch play though not too big and a decent playmaker. Obviously we didn't DEPEND on Sergei to score a million goals, but we knew he would always be playing 2 ways and ready to crash the net. Depending on how Bergie develops he can become either Elias 2.0 or Brylin 2.0 (as in new and improved x500)



Sucks that all we have to argue about here on the Devils board is why we don't just win EVERY game and how we have too much talent! SO much so that we're running out of Devils who still have time left to replace them mentally with down the road!

I'd love to hear who you think he most models, Devil or not, and why!

I'd say the only bad thing about Bergfors' game is that it's vey much based on confidence, but if he uses that much creativity, flair and technique to dangle with constant confidence, he'll be a lock for that first line.

I'm also impressed that he doesn't look small at all despite being like 5'11, the kid has grown muscle this off season and that's paying off with his work along the boards and posession game, just add a little offensive awareness and you got yourself a "garbage goal master", aside from a playmaker of a great calibre and a good sniper from medium range, he's a very complete player.

I think this is accurate. Bergfors doesn't get his goals in any one specific way. Before the season we thought he was a sniper who would require a playmaker to succeed. More often than not, however, he is the playmaker.

Bergfors scores garbage goals in front of the net and he scores on snipes. Compare this with Parise, who scores a ton of garbage goals, and with Elias, who tends to score mostly from the outside. If Bergfors can get consistent at both, he will be a very dangerous goal scorer indeed.
