If/when Bergeron comes back..

I say the Habs go for him and hit him twice as hard as they would anyone else.

Let him know that he doesn't get a free pass because of what happened to him during the season. Who's with this?

he wont make much of a difference, he hasnt played all year, dont expect him to make a huge impact if he does return.

If Bergeron is back, then so is Koivu. It evens out easily.

He won't get a free pass, but Montreal isn't going to be stupid and go after him to wreck his career or to have the Bruins go after Kovalev or run Price!

Montreal will be smart and play him like any other player...Bergeron has been off too long to be a game breaker, people are too worried about one player who isn't playing instead of a whole team that is actually playing.

That's a terrible tactic. They need to worry about getting goals and finding our lost PP.

well hit him hard then. just keep it clean and everythings all good. if he wants to come back then obviously he thinks he's ready to take some punishment.

If Bergeron possibly is in,no way he should get preferential or soft treatment IMO,even if he returns from a serious injury.It's the freaking playoffs,not a cheerleading competition.He has to assume the risks of playing in the postseason.Sorry but that's the way it is.

I disagree with the ridiculous and classless comment you've quoted though,but that is all.He shouldn't get a free pass if he's in.

But I would not be happy to see him getting a cheap shot. A player like Bergeron makes the game better. I want him to play. Of course I want him to be hit and I want to win against him.

Anyway, Hammer or Komi are no dirty players nor Carbo is a dirty coach.
I agree with this post and hope I can associate all Habs fans with this line of thinking espeacially the last line.

Many of us Bruins fans don't want to see Patrice come back this series, unless maybe it's for a Game 7, and maybe not even then.

He's too much of an asset to gamble with, particularly in a series like this with Montreal so heavily favored.

It's nice to have French Canadians like Savard and Bergeron in a B's uniform--you guys can't have ALL the great FC players..

Bergeron is a big boy and if he comes back feel free to run him and hit him. This is hockey and if he's going to get another concussion tomorrow or in 5 years it's going to happen. I hope it doesn't but a guy being out for 6 months and symptom free for like 2 or whatever it is I'm confident he is fine. As for a guy not being able to be affective after missing all year how is that Clowe guy doing in SJ? Granted Koivu will probably be back shortly too.

Lots of Bruins fans are being babies and don't want Bergeron back until next year but I just don't understand it.

Maybe, but Clowe missed a bunch of games and he's been great for SJ.

He certainly won't be as good as he was 1 year ago but he's an upgrade over whoever he replaces.

Bergeron ain't easy to hit, but go ahead and try. Of course, you can bury him from behind into the boards if you want to take him out, but otherwise, good luck. He's a lot like Kovalev in that he very rarely gets caught with his head down. Honestly, I can't ever remember it happening.

I have no idea if his family is francophone or anglophone though.... Ottawa could be either.

Nice, with him back they'll probably play worse as a team. They'll probably get a false sense of superiority and not play as hard. It's happened to other teams.

I say you hit Marc Savard just before he crosses Bergeron's path on the ice: Savard swan dives (naturally) but right in front of Bergeron who falls heavily while tripping over Savard. Savard has rib damage and Bergeron is all wobbly and cant play..

Voila!
