With the departure of Tom Brady, it is clear that Boston’s new face is Boston Bruins center Patrice Bergeron.
Well now that Tom Brady is gone, the Boston sports landscape is in an interesting spot. He has been the face of the Mt.Rushmore for so long. Now the top spot belongs to Patrice Bergeron of the Boston Bruins.
Now before you get too upset, yes Jayson Tatum is awesome, but he has yet to bring a championship. That is something Bergeron has done.

Bergeron has been in Boston for his entire career. He grew from a young up and comer to one of the best two-way players in the NHL.
Just like Brady, Bergeron is continuing to defy time. You think he is going to start declining and then he comes out and performs even better.
This is Bergeron’s 16th year in the NHL and he might have a new career-high in goals. It all depends on how the rest of the NHL season ends up playing out (if they even play at all). So far this season Bergeron has 31 goals and 25 assists.
What makes Bergeron so special is how much he impacts the roster. When Bergeron isn’t playing you notice it on the ice. The team is completely different.
Unlike Brady, Bergeron has had to deal with some injury issues. Luckily that hasn’t stopped him from performing well.
Due to his tenure in Boston and his winning ways you have to say that Boston is officially Patrice Bergeron’s town.
It will be interesting to see how the Boston sports landscape changes. Will the Bruins and Celtics catapult to the top or will the Patriots still dominate? Also, this is a chance for Julian Edelman to prove he isn’t a knockoff Tom Brady. He can become the star of New England.
