    Trading Bergeron is not far fetched

    Listen, I love the guy and he could be our smartest offensive player. But he needs a contract extension and he'll want some pretty good dough (5-5.5 mill per year?). With Savard and Krejci locked up, do you want to pay a player that kind of money to be a third line center? I wouldn't. Also,trading him could provide benefits for us cap-wise.

    You could:

    Trade Bergeron and #2 to the Oilers for #1 pick and Andrew Coligano (saves up about 4 mill for us)

    Draft Hall

    Buy out Ryder's Contract (saves about 1.5 mill)

    Sign Ray Whitney to a 2 year deal worth about 8 million (4 mill per year)

    Hall-Savard-Whitney
    Sturm-Krejci-Recchi
    Lucic-Coligano-Paille (believe we resign Paille)
    Thornton-Hamill-Begin

    yes, trade the only Bruin who can adequately play: 
    1. both ways
    2. and win faceoffs
    3. and make passes
    4. and forecheck
    5. and skate
    6. and score a little
    ...makes perfect sense. trade him and the team automatically improves...brilliant thread starter!!!!!

    Of course, this made as much as sense as re-signing Shawn of the Dead Thornton, who has clearly turned into a weak excuse for an enforcer, and an even weaker excuse of a fore-checker...And that was done by the GM, not a random opinion of a poster here.

    Bergeron may be our best two-way player and faceoff guy but he is definitely not our best passer, skater or scorer.  I don't necessarily agree with this trade scenario but trading one of our centermen has to be an option that PC is considering.  It would have to be the right deal though.

    I would definitely not want to see Bergeron traded, but the fact is that it really looks like PC is going to have to move one of the big contracts to make things fit.

    Doesn't have to be Bergeron, but the fact is that it could be.

    I think he's a great player and fun to watch, but ican't see him getting 2 years $8 million.. although stranger things have happened.  I see him signing a one year 3.75 mill or 2 year 6 mill with LA.

    It sure isn't easy to voice an opinion with this bunch of A-holes is it?   I think you are way off with this idea, but I'm going to say it with class, unlike half the posters in this group.   
    Bergeron is worth too much to this team to trade.  He will be extended.   Ryder will go, to a offence starved team with cap space (Toronto?) and the B's will toss in a prospect or two and/or draft picks in exchange for, well, basically nothing.  The B's only have depth at center IF Seguin is drafted and lives up to his billing (2-3 years), Savard returns to form, Krejci can play a season without getting hurt, and Bergeron does what he has been doing the last 2 years, and before he got hurt.  Bergy is the closest to a sure thing in the line-up.  He stays, period.

    I personally would rather see Bergeron just moved to right wing.  He can still take the face-off, then just move to the wing. 

    I don't see this happenign next season, but the year after, colborne should eb ready to make the team and take over as a top 3 center, plus there likely will be  a void on the wing with Sturm, Ryder, Recchi's, ect.. all gone after next season.

    I never said anything bad about the thread starter, just that the B's need 9 Patrice Bergerons, not none.

    Whitney is a 25 goal scorer who just turned 38.  No one is giving him $8M/2.  He'll be lucky to get $6M/2.

    Bergeron if not traded, will resign an extension at less money because he will want to stay here.
