It’s a bold strategy, let’s see if it pays off for him

With all the general managers together in Boca Raton for their yearly meetings, Marc Bergevin grabbed the spotlight, in a way only he could.

Long known as a prankster during his playing days, that appears to have carried that over to his time in front office. Bergevin decided that a potted plant was the best way to dodge the throng of media coverage as he head to lunch.

Full credit for trying, Marc. Might I recommend a nice fern next time? Maybe a little face paint? Or perhaps a camouflaged outfit to complete the ensemble.
