Bergeron for Pronger?
This thing won't die, the most recent rumor out there is that Patrice Bergeron would be the center piece in a deal for Pronger along with a pick and prospect.
I'm going to say, I am in favor of this potential deal. Pronger has 1 more year at 6.25 million and Bergeron has 2 more years at 4.75 million dollars. I LOVE Bergy, and he is just regaining his form, having said that, I think Bergeron is obviously our number 3 center with the emergence of David Krejci. Many people think Bergeron will be traded just to re-sign Kessel and Krejci, so why not make the move for a top 5 defenseman in the league?
Now, I'm not saying deal Bergeron, Stuart, Colborne and a 1st. No way in hell. But Bergeron, Nokie/Sobotka, and a 1st for Pronger and Moen, then I would do it.
I'm torn, but in the long run, defense is more important than offense. Of course if you trade Bergeron you definitely need to pick up a Cole/Tkachuk type player as the offense would be very week. Maybe Satan off waivers?
