Quick has earned the job all year and he hasn't lost it yet.

The best possible thing you can do is to send Bernier down to Manchester right now. Let him go back to the farm with the confidence that he has every chance in the world to earn the job next year, but also with that chip on his shoulder for the rest of this season. It's win-win.
Agreed, you also have to remember that JB hasn't been up long enough to get a "book" on him, what happens if in say 5 games teams start to light him up because they find some tendencies in his game?
