Bergeron once again a Selke Finalist and will probably end up winning it

Who else, right?

The NHL announced via twitter dot com their Selke Finalists.

I’m sure you’re shocked who ended up in there.

That’s right, Your #1 center Patrice Bergeron!

Oh, the other two who aren’t Bergeron...

Oh, that’s rich.

Bergeron has once again been the NHL’s premiere two-way forward and probably the best overall forward in the league once again in terms of sheer possession generation and defensive suppression by a country mile. Kesler and Koivu, while they were on very good teams this year, aren’t close to the sheer impact Bergeron brings.

Basically? It’s a formality at this point. If Boston does a certain thing (which I’m not going to say out loud or type out lest I jinx it), then hand Bergeron his Selke and let’s crown him the best two-way player to lace up some skates in the modern era.

Congrats to Bergeron for his nomination, and his inevitable win.
