Boston Bruins captain Patrice Bergeron chops his fingers that Taylor Hall will still be his teammate next season.
Interview on the show JICOn Friday, Quebec widely praised the 29-year-old ward, whose reputation has been damaged in recent years.
“It made a big difference [son acquisition]. It gave us so much depth and undeniably offensive skills. “We’ve all seen them,” said a native Ancienne-Lorette.
Coupled with his above-average talent, Hall showed an exemplary stance in Boston.
Bergeron said: “To see him up close in every match, to throw off his preparations on the ice and his readiness to be part of the Bruins’ culture … his” acceptance “has been around from day one. We feel his desire to win as a team. It is really there. “
This is an important file on Bruins Don Sweeney’s general manager table, with the knowledge that Hall will be able to achieve complete independence at the end of the season.
Bergeron avoids putting words into the mouths of his team-mate and General Motors, but is cautiously optimistic about Hall’s return to the Bruins in 2021-22.
“He seems to like him in Boston,” he noted. We really hope you succeed. “
With a five-game win over the Washington Capitals in the first round of qualifiers, Bruins now has a date with the tough New York Islanders team.
Bergeron predicted, “It will be a difficult match, and there will not be much space on the ice.” The key is not to feel discouraged by playing against such a system. “
