07:26 AM ET 08.26 | Between the late end of the season, his own extended injury recovery and the offseason Team Canada moonlighting, Patrice Bergeron hasn't enjoyed much downtime this summer. [Bergeron] said he is currently at "95 percent" healthy in his return from a host of physical ailments that he suffered during the Stanley Cup Final, including the punctured lung that landed him in the hospital. Bergeron spoke at a press conference along with four other members of the Team Canada orientation team at the Markin MacPhail Centre at Canada Olympic Park on Sunday afternoon. "I feel pretty good," Bergeron said. "I'm pretty much at 95 percent." Bergeron said he is confident that he'll be ready for training camp, and that he'll "definitely" be ready for the start of the season in October.

That's another example of why BOS is a successful organization, and PHA is, well, PHA.

Please feel free to remain in Calgary after orientation bonding is done Patrice. We have a lovely red Flames sweater that would look perfect on you.

Won't have anything close to this kind of talent in Calgary again until the first visiting team shows up at the airport for the regular season home opener...

Sometimes when they bring in new kids with nothing to lose it's a lot of fun to watch. But yes painful too.

Cammalleri, Backlund, Baertschi and not much else.

Out of curiosity I checked to see who they open up at home against and it's the Canucks so I'm waffling on comment 6...

Will be checking centre for Canada. More leadership than Jordan Staal. Will wear an "A" on Team Canada, along with Weber.

Havent you been rebuilding since 1989?

If this year is anything like the last two years, attrition is going to be the name of the game - especially for Team Canada. These Preemie Camp guys are all come into this season wearing HUGE invisible targets.
