Begeron

Marc Andre Bergeron should be a big help to the Islanders' power
play.

Entering play Sunday, only 10 defensemen in the NHL have more pp
goals --Bergeron has six.

He had eight power play points in an eleven game span earlier
this season. The Isles, as a team, have only eight pp goals in
the last sixteen games.

Bergeron also has wheels and a great shot. He won the Oilers'
skill competition this year for both the fastest skater and for
the hardest shot.

I guess we'll learn soon why the Oilers were willing to give him
up....
