#1 is subjective and the title means dick. We are talking about who has earned the postseason. Quick has earned this postseason and his stats have given the team stability. He has played a full season in the NHL and will get the nod going into the postseason. I don't care if Bernier is the second calling of Patrick Roy, he is going back to Manchester. After all the "earning your stripes" hoopla, do you really believe that Lombardi would allow Quick to be sat out after his record setting season in favor of Bernier because he happened to win 2-3 games as an emergency call-up? Not happening. Bernier didn't even earn those starts and wouldn't have been on the team had it not been for emergency reasons.
