So you know hockey better than Cam, Cherry, Hocky Canada, and everyone else?
Bergeron had as many points this season as Krejci in less games.
Career points per game:
Bergeron is .744
Krejci is .681
This is despite Bergeron having to carry the team before Savards arrival, being given most of the defensive responability since, and spending a lot
of the last two seasons with either Paille or Axellsson on one wing, and a cast of thousands on the other. Bergeron has had a 30+ goal season, Krejci's high is 22 which is equal to Bergeron's second highest campaign. In about 1/3 more games, Bergeron has more than twice as many game winning goals. Add in Bergeron's hitting, conditioning, faceoffs, and ability to go into the corners and along the wall and take the puck from bigger, guys like teeny, tiny Tyler Myers,
and yes, Bergeron is
the superior player.
All that said, I still like Krejci's "A game" tons, and don't even cry too much when we have to see his "B- game".

Bergeron makes the most, and despite all the hype he gets on this board, Krejci is the better player. Krejci is probably the best contract we have on this roster, so save 2 million by choosing him. Savard is a long term contract, and is the most important player on this team on the PP. None of these guys have the physical strength to play along the boards...so moving one of them to wing isn't an option. We've got too many finesse forwards as it is. I'm sure the Bergeron propaganda machine is about to go into hyperdrive... you know the whole "face off", and "2 way player" thing.
