(ART: Deroy Designs) Boston Bruins forward Patrice Bergeron only knows ONE thing how to WIN.  His career is riddled with championship at almost every level. I’m sure Bergeron is only player with spengler cup world jr gold Olympic gold and a Stanley cup. #impressive #champion — Milan Lucic (@MilanLucic4) December 31, 2012 LOOCH, you may just be right. The man they call “Bergy” just continues to add to his IMPRESSIVE career. During the NHL Lockout, he has kept busy and in shape by playing for HC Lugano of the Swiss League. In 21 games, he scored 11 goals and added 18 assists, of course he had an INCREDIBLE +13 plus/minus. The last stat speaks the most about Bergeron’s play. He is one of the BEST two way players on the planet.  Just ask the NHL, who awarded him the Frank J. Selke trophy last season for being the top defensive forward in the league. Bergeron left his Swiss team to play for Team Canada in the Spengler Cup and guess what…. Spengler cup champs. It’s not Stanley but still cool. With the liney twitter.com/tylerseguin92/… — Tyler Seguin (@tylerseguin92) December 31, 2012 CHAMPIONSHIP….as team Canada throttled HC Davos 7-2. Oh yeah, Bergeron tied for the top scorer in tournament with 1 goal and 4 assists in 5 games. Just as “The Kid” said in his tweet above, the Spengler is NOT Stanley, but Bergy has one of those too.  Patrice Bergeron was a TOUR DE FORCE during the Stanley Cup run of 2011. In 23 playoff games (missed 2 games due to concussion), Bergeron scored four goals and 16 assists with an eye-popping plus 15. Two of his four goals came in the most important game of his life, game seven of the Stanley Cup Finals: Bergeron must mean CLUTCH in French. Bergy added a Stanley Cup ring to his ever expanding trophy case. He is one of just 26 players to win the Stanley Cup, Olympic Gold medal and World Championship Gold. He is a proud member of the TRIPLE GOLD Club. At just 27 years of age, Patrice Bergeron has done it ALL in his hockey career. However, that fire of competition blazes like a five alarm fire in #37′s belly. Bergeron’s Hockey Resume according to Wikipedia: Awards & Honors 2003–04: Played in the YoungStars Game (NHL) 2004 IIHF World Ice Hockey Championships: World Ice Hockey gold 2005 IIHF World U20 Championships: World Ice Hockey gold, MVP, and All-Star Team 2010 Winter Olympics: Olympic gold 2010–11: Won Stanley Cup with Boston Bruins (Bergeron became 26th member of the Triple Gold Club) 2011-12: Won NHL Plus-Minus Award 2011-12: Won Frank J. Selke Trophy 2012 Spengler Cup: Winner with Team Canada Quite IMPRESSIVE eh? Hopefully, the NHL Lockout will end, so he can add ANOTHER Stanley Cup to his hockey portfolio.

Malcolm Subban Lit Up by Americans, But It’s Far Too Early to Question Bruins Prospect’s Future

Malcolm Subban had a bad game on the biggest stage he’s ever been on Thursday in Russia. The Canadian goaltender was victimized for four early goals by Team USA en route to an embarrassing loss for Canada in the semifinals of the world junior tournament. Things got so bad, in fact, that Subban was yanked midway through the second period in an attempt to keep things from getting...

Potential Candidates For Bruins' Amnesty Clause

There's been word that the NHL has submitted a counter proposal to the NHLPA (which makes #5 now?) that includes two amnesty clauses in the new CBA. For those who don't know what an amnesty clause is, it allows teams to eliminate a bad contract (or two) under certain conditions. I believe this is also cap-penalty free, but the particulars aren't known.  Again, this...
