The GM who can do no wrong

08:25 AM ET 04.08 | There, now, it's settled. Marc Bergevin is a genius. In case you had any doubts on that point, sportswriters working in both French and English hit upon the same lead after Michael Ryder's star turn against Winnipeg last week. ... Bergevin seems to do no wrong. He has done three years work in the span of a few months, handled the tricky P.K. Subban situation with aplomb, drafted the most talented player in the 2012 draft in young Alex Galchenyuk and pulled off the trade of the year by prying Michael Ryder out of Dallas in exchange for the moribund Erik Cole. But Bergevin's most brilliant stroke may have been the one that drew the most fire at the time: the decision to recycle Michel Therrien as his coach.

Be very careful what you hope for ;-)

The Habs own the Bruins! Be afraid! Be very afraid! The bears better wake up from their cozy hibernation soon.

Too many TO's and too many shots on net being allowed by the Bruins lately. It doesn't help that they seem lethargic at the start of every game. They need to play with more sense of urgency.

I don't know. Next to a Boston/Mtl series a Mtl/Leafs series would be a lot of fun.

Bruins are still adapting to the absence of Bergeron. They have plenty of time to regroup.

I'm impressed. The trunaround has been incredible and beyond what I would have thought possible for this bunch.

The story above is correct, at the moment it seems that Bergevin can do no wrong.

Yes, just call the engraver.BTW, if anyone enjoys golf (or just wants to take a guess) we are having a little pool to pick the winner of the Master's Tournament which is starting on Thursday. I will be updating the current picks on the latest golf thread in a few minutes. Everyone is welcome.

Talk about calling the engraver. Tiger wins a couple of tournaments and all of a sudden he's the favorite for a grand slam. Still not convinced he's going to be the same player before Elin whacked him with a 5 iron.

for sure...but it's critical that they have him for the playoffs. This team is alot less balanced than the group that won the cup a few years ago. Meanwhile, Bergeron is probably amongst the most underrated players in the league...which is weird to say because we all know Bergeron, but aside from B's fans, most of us probably don't realize just how good he is.

Maybe not, but if he can consistently compete that will be enough. Golf desperately needs Tiger to perform.

Yes,

Congratulations to you, as well.

Certain gossip rags would have you believe that it was the re-tapping of Elin that lead to his turnaround. Apparently things were overly cordial recently at one of the kids sporting events.
