OT: Marc-Andre Bergeron is a Wild

He got traded for a 3rd round pick in the upcoming draft. I think the Wild did a great move because they needed someone good on the powerplay to support their speciality teams. Also, the price to pay was very cheap and I thought for a long time that the Wild are some offensive d-men away from a long playoff run.

Very good trade for the Wild. It's not like they overpaid or anything.

Good move...he'll bring 30 to 40 points. For a third round pick, it's excellent!

Good trade, not like he was worth that much. Should help their need for offense wonder if Lemaire can teach him some defense.

That's the key here. Lemaire could turn Bergeron in a very fine defensman. I think it's part of the reasoning behind this move.

He will definitely help the Wild on the PP, but 5 on 5 he's brutal. Lemaire will lose whatever hair he has left on his head watching him play defense.

Hes pretty useless on anything but 5-on-3. He has a great shot but tends to be very selective which hurts him more than helps him. I like this as a Ducks fan. Not like we used him.

Hopefully Lemaire can improve his defense.

Strangely, a lot of people on this board thought Bergeron was no good and a waste of space. Something I know now, we would have love to have a 3rd rounder for him. Still tons of good prospects around that time for the Ducks.

So for me, good trade for the Ducks for a liability like him....

That quote could very well reflect the play of Mark Streit as well, eh??

Sorry but Streit is a better player both on offense and on defense.

True, but Bergeron is noted for being good offensively and poor defensively. While Dandy is known for being....well you know the rest.

The fact that they actually gotr a 3rd for him shows that points matter doesn't it ? Guys that are discarded by fans whether they be one dimensional wingers or d men, well if they can put up some points, someone will be interested, despite their flaws.

That's why whenever we're talking about replacing a vet's production, when I see the phrase, 'well his goals can easily be replaced by' , I'm not that sure.

It's not so much that I'm surprised that someone picked up Bergeron. What surprised me was that a team noted for their defensive style of play picked up Bergeron. But hopefully like it has been mentioned that Lemaire's influence can rub off on him.

That is not an apple vs apple comparison.

Dandenault is much older and makes way much more money.

The thing that makes me scratch my head abot Bergeron is that he sometimes looks sooooo good. Yet, no team is willing to stick with him even if he is cheap.

Why?

Dandenault's value is at an all-time high of a 7th. Get it done, Bob!

Fixed. That comes from Isles fan who has seen him all season long. MAB is a terrible D-man. Terrible.
