While 99% of hockey insiders rightfully praised the Quebec native's career, including the Montreal Canadiens organization, here's what two very popular radio hosts from the Boston region had to say:
It's really discouraging to read this and it's very difficult to understand honestly.
These are two extremely popular radio hosts in the Boston region who indeed chose to belittle Patrice Bergeron on air on what was supposed to be a special day for him.
They went on to argue that he is overrated, that he lost two Stanley Cups he should have won (as if he were solely responsible for the team's performance), and even questioned his abilities as a defensive forward.
Six Selke Trophies aren't enough for them?
In short, it's evident that we strongly disagree with their remarks, and we stand 100% behind Patrice Bergeron. He is one of the all-time greats, and his incredible career deserves utmost praise.
It's a valuable lesson, demonstrating that no matter what you do in life, there will always be critics whose views are hard to comprehend.
Everyone is entitled to their opinion, but it was certainly unnecessary to publicly criticize Bergeron on the day of his retirement announcement.
