Report- Patrice Bergeron Wants To Play Another Season

from Steve Conroy of the Boston Herald,

The Bruins have not faced this much uncertainty since the organization dumped GM Mike O’Connell at the end of 2005-06, just a few months after he traded perceived cornerstone player Joe Thornton.

As we await the puffs of white smoke to appear over Causeway Street announcing the B’s new coach – whether it be Jay Leach, David Quinn, Jim Montgomery or some other unforeseen candidate — a new bench boss is just one of a few mammoth issues facing this organization. There’s the fact that the B’s will be without two of their best players — Brad Marchand and Charlie McAvoy — until possibly Thanksgiving. There’s the uncertain future of David Pastrnak, set to become a UFA after this upcoming season.

And then there’s the issue that could most immediately affect how the club approaches its presumed reset/retool/rebuild, whatever you want to call it. That’s the looming decision for Patrice Bergeron on whether he wants to continue playing or not.

Which way is he going to go? Well, we’re still in the clue-sifting stage. But it’s worth noting that over this past week, a couple of well-placed league sources believe that Bergeron does indeed want to return for one more season.
