Looks like Mr. Bergfors is on waivers again. He sure has a busy travel schedule.
Looks Lou knew what he was doing at least with this kid....

Nashville puts Bergfors on waivers.


Lou also drafted him in the first round, but everyone has first-rounders that don't pan out.

One can argue that Bergfors was a significant part of the reason the Devils were able to get Kovy, as he was showing promise at that point...enough that a team like Atlanta Winnipeg thought they were getting a solid prospect. One can also argue whether or not Kovy now being here is a good thing. But as far as bringing something back, the Devils got more out of Bergfors than anyone else.

THE NHL MUST LOVE THE DEVILS - from who else? A RANGER fan!
[Mark Messier]: A big, bald attention whore with a stupid Easter Island-lookin face. - from who else? DaneykoIsGod!

Even when Marty comes back maybe Larry should put Clemmensen to be on the goal during the shootouts.
Can the coach do that ? Switch the goalies 5 seconds to go in overtime?
- Most priceless quote ever posted on a message board.

Martin Brodeur: THE MOST ALL-TIME WINS!, 12 straight seasons of 30+ wins, 3 Stanley Cups, 4 Vezina Trophies, and zero respect from too many so-called Devils "fans" who are either too young or too bandwagon to remember the much darker days of Sean Burke, Craig Billington, Bob Sauve, Alain Chevrier, and the talented but overwhelmed Chico Resch, among many others.

It's easy to support a great player when he's playing at his very best. It takes a true fan to support that same player during those rare moments and stretches when he's not. Babe Ruth went 0-4 some games, and sometimes Wayne Gretzky was held pointless. There may be such a thing as greatness, but no such thing as absolute perfection every single night.

He'd have to be traded first.

Remember that at the time of the Kovalchuk trade, Bergfors was still an up and coming top 6 prospect, and finished that season with decent combined numbers between NJ/ATL.


As far as Tedenby goes, we'll have to see. Deboer clearly wants to polish him up quite a bit before considering him for a top 6 role.

I wouldn't say Lou knew what he was doing. He had to give up some pieces to get a player like Kovalchuk. Turns out getting rid of Bergfors was not a big deal at all. It wasn't like Lou saw this coming and swapped him for a deadline rental defenseman instead of trading a 2nd overall pick. He got Kovy out of it.

A harsh question, but a good one. I was worried we were getting Maxim Afinogenov ... we're not even getting that. But he's not even 22 yet, so he has youth on his side. Would like to see some progress soon, though.

I agree. Bergfors numbers at that time were really decent for a rookie and most of us were excited about his performances.
about his performances.

Id hesitate to put teddy in the same group as Bergfors. Teddy still has yet to get even 82 games under his belt.

Hopefully Henrique doesn't follow the path of Bergfors.


Im already more impressed with Henrique than I ever was with Bergfors, hope he can stay up

It seems like just the other day everyone was calling for Lou to bring up Bergfors and Vrana.

I hope we claim him.

Macissiac favorite stat



The second reason has to do with Bergfors’ history. Over the last two seasons, he has done a pretty solid job in terms of the shot-based metrics, which tend to move hand-in-hand with scoring chances. Last season, despite starting more frequently in his own end than in the offensive zone, he had one of the best Corsi (Corsi is a plus/minus based on shots, missed shots and blocked shots for and against) numbers on the team, and the same is true in 2009-10 (where he was in the 50/50 range for starting in the offensive/defensive zone). He could be a player.

I saw a glimpse of a Brian Gionta type player in Tedenby late last year....but he has seemed to regress this season (and Palmieri too) I hope they start putting the biscuit in the basket if you know what I'm sayin.
