Insight: Bergeron is off to a fast start this season with eight points (2g-6a) in just six games. He has tremendous offensive upside, but he has had problems staying in the lineup throughout his career because of his lack of defensive ability. That being said, he probably won't be a healthy scratch anytime soon and thus is a viable option in fantasy leagues.
