Moller may not have put up the points all the time, but he has the mental consistency to back it up, a characteristic which is a hallmark of Hickey's.

Bernier has all the talent in the world, but there are for more talented goalies who lack the proper mental game to be in the NHL than there are goalies with a strong mentality who lack the talent.

The point is that Bernier can have the talent of Patrick Roy, but without the mental game to back it up, he will not be a franchise goaltender.

Goalies are far more complicated than to say "they have potential, all they have to do is reach it"
