[QUOTE]This thread makes sense because of Bergy's huge cap hit-4.75 However, one glaring weakness is the level of his play. Yeah-he's playing better than any player on the team, but that isn't saying much right now. He ranks 102nd in NHL scoring; not a misprint- 102!!! He would not bring much back in a trade and at that cap #, the B's would be lucky to get rid of him at all. I really DO like the guy, but let's accept him for what he is: a good 3rd line center when the B's are healthy...

but when you add a 2nd round pick ? or a 1st for a superstar it becomes a good trade.
Like I said earlier and you must stay objective because not all our players on the roster are stars (some of you seem to think so), some maybe have promise but teams trading this early want results now. So again why would teams take our un-waned players.
Who wants Ference , a UFA ? His value , 0.
Who wants Wideman ? Had only one pretty good year , value 0
Who wants Sturm ? yes yes he has no a no trade clause .
Who wants Ryder ? 1 goals thus far and making 4M . not a go.
I never suggested trading Sobotka , I merely said we have depth on the center position and Bergeron vs cap space and the return we can get is the best option.
Sobotka could replace Bergy on the 3rd line.
Trade Chara ? ahhhhhh this is a story for another day.
I like Bergeron a lot and it would hurt me to see him go , okay that's my soft side, my hockey side is saying, it might be our best option to fill the void we have in this team.
Hey ! I loved Barry Pederson (if some of you remember) but we got Cam Neely out of that trade. Disappointed at first but soon Cam made me forget Pederson.
