I have faith in Ersberg, I have been arguing it vigorously against people who were saying that a veteran backup was a requirement at the trade deadline. I think Ersberg is a proven, solid backup goaltender. I have no butterflies in my stomach when Ersberg is out there starting against the Stars.

However, I have to revert to the best chance to win. It is proven experience versus unproven talent. I honestly believe Bernier is a better option in net than Ersberg, that he gives us the best chance to win. He is more technically sound and better positionally.

I have no doubt Ersberg is going to do a good job for us, I just believe that Bernier will do a better job. I think seniority should not preside over point potential. We aren't locked in the playoffs, we can still theoretically miss the playoffs, every point is critical, I just want the best possible chance.
