He'll get that time when Ersberg or Quick is injured. Both of those guys aren't going to be healthy all of the time for the next two seasons. That's how Quick got his chance, remember. It's not like the Kings were dying to give Quick playing time; they didn't have much choice, because of injury.

Also, nothing is set in stone. Bernier will be given every opportunity to take a spot with the Kings in training camp, both '09 and '10. I really don't think that there's anything to worry about with regard to opportunity. The only thing to worry about is that he'll get the opportunity and fumble it.
