As long as you like good hockey he is an impossible player to hate.

Gospel.
Just plays the game the right way and has had some seriously impressive games in very clutch situations - although I'm still disappointed he got hurt in the 1st game of the Olympics, dropped off the 1st line and never got the chance to show the world what he's capable of.
Too bad two lockouts and Randy Jones have interrupted his career to the extent they have. But he's still only what 27? 26?

The guy is beyond good. Glad to see him dominate another clutch situation.

The more hockey you watch, the more you appreciate Patrice Bergeron.

Needs to win a World Championship and a Spengler Cup to have all the hardware available to him (minus other leagues like KHL, SEL..etc).

A World Championship usually means that your NHL team has been eliminated from Stanley Cup contention. I think I'd take a Cup or being in the hunt for it over a World Championship against watered down competition. World Cup is a different story though.

Both Bergy and Seguin have been playing great in Europe during the lockout. If that carries over into a shortened NHL season the Bruins will be a force to reckon with as long as Rask is up to getting the job done in net.

He has everybody beat. If Iginla wins a cup he will be pretty close.

Bergeron and Richards are the two most impressive resumes from the post lockout crop. But speaking of lockouts, only during a lockout can we start mentioning the Spengler Cup as a noteworthy accomplishment. Not quite on par with those other championships.

Bergeron is a pleasure to watch. Such an all around force. How awesome was that 05 Canadian World Juniors team though, huh?

Bergeron, the only Bruin I would gladly add to the Habs.

Very similar guys, but Bergeron is infinitely more likeable, in my opinion (and beyond that I think he's objectively better than Richards is).

Bergeron is a tremendous player, really glad to see him completely recovered from that very scary injury that he suffered a few seasons ago.

In 2003, the Kings drafted Brown, Tambellini, Boyle and Pushkarev all before Bergeron.

Pushkarev was taken 44th overall, Bergeron 45th.
