Default Encouraging news on Bergeron

December 19, 2007

Patrice Bergeron's return from a Grade 3 concussion gained a bit of momentum yesterday following what general manager Peter Chiarelli termed an "encouraging" report after the 22-year-old center underwent another neurological exam at Massachusetts General Hospital.

According to Chiarelli, Bergeron, who was knocked unconscious in an Oct. 27 game at TD Banknorth Garden against Philadelphia, could attempt his first "very light workout" later this week.

"So, it's good news," said Chiarelli, talking outside his ninth-floor box at the Garden last night following the second period of the Bruins-Senators match. "The last week and a half, he's been in good spirits, and his demeanor has been good. So, it's positive, but at the same time we still have to be very, very cautious."

Bergeron, said Chiarelli, likely will start with some low-impact exercise, such as riding a stationary bike. The team's medical staff thus far has been reluctant to allow Bergeron to do anything more than take leisurely walks.

"I haven't talked to him yet," said Chiarelli, who was informed of the MGH report by the club's training staff. "Exactly when he starts, what he does, and how much . . . it will be a feeling-out process. But the good news is, it sounds like it's moving in the right direction."

Default Bergeron done for the season?

About a month ago, Bruins center Patrice Bergeron took his first steps toward getting back on the ice, reporting to Wilmington for light stretching and a few minutes on the exercise bike.

His progress slow, Bergeron, at the suggestion of general manager Peter Chiarelli, recently headed off on an island vacation. Time for some warm weather and sandy beaches, which also could mean the sun officially is about to set on his 2007-08 season.

"I don't think he will be back this season," Chiarelli said Thursday, emphasizing a position he took in the days soon after Bergeron was drilled into the Garden's rear boards Oct. 27 by Flyers defenseman Randy Jones.

"I hope he's back. He wants to be back . . . but at the same time, we don't want any pressure on him. So we told him, 'Hey, head off to the islands.' "

Some three months after Bergeron suffered a Grade 3 concussion, Chiarelli realizes it could be time for the 22-year-old to focus on 2008-09.

"He may be best served - and we may be best served - in the near future to shutting him down," said Chiarelli. "At the start, there was that little blip, he showed good signs, no headaches . . . but then that stopped, and he regressed a little. It's the way it is with concussions; the recovery is not linear."

If Bergeron is shut down for the season, Chiarelli then would have the balance of the center's $5 million salary to work with in the trade market. The GM already has the balance of Manny Fernandez's $4.5 million, too. As enticing as that may sound, it is not as if high-end free agent talent is sitting home awaiting a call. If someone wants to trade - and that's a very big if these days - Chiarelli with the "leftover" salaries of Fernandez and Bergeron would have more financial elbow room than many, if not most, GMs.

"That's really not the big issue with Patrice," noted Chiarelli. "What I'm really concerned about, more than anything, is his long-term well-being."
