This might be a case of 'grass is always greener'...Bergfors has obviously done something wrong if he's being shopped around by the thrashers. The only other player that we heard had a memo sent about him is Brian Lee, so that says something.
essentially, if we did michalek for bergfors, we get bergfors for Heatley. Now that is an even worse trade than what we had before.
Michalek is damaged for sure, but we gotta remember that Hossa also had a serious knee injury in junior and took a few years to bounce back, but boy did he ever. I think same goes for Michalek....we saw it with Cowen too. I don't know.....I still have faith in Michalek despite the sub-sub-par performance this season (which can be said for spezza, alfie, kovalev, fisher, phillps, holy Cuss KUBA, gonchar, regin, foligno) but michalek still draws most of the powerplays for ottawa
