No we're not. I didn't say anything about trading Quick. I just said that best case scenario is that Bernier is better than Quick. Everybody should want him to be better than Quick. He'll be an RFA longer and a lower cap hit.

Worst case would be all our goalies sucking from here on out.

I don't agree with not resigning Quick. That's your overly defensive "Quick Fan" stance speaking, not me.

I think Quick is better.
I think we should resign Quick.
I think Quick is more than good enough to be #1 here.

I think Bernier hasn't had a chance to show how good he is.
I think Bernier could be better.
I think it's in the Kings best interests to know how good Bernier is.
I think it's too late in the season to start giving Bernier more starts.
I think Terry Murray must have devised an intricate and revolutionary equation in order to discover the worst way to handle two young, promising goaltenders.

I know Bernier is an RFA.
Quick will deserve a higher cap hit this season than Bernier would if he played lights out next season.
Therefore: I think it's in the Kings best interests that Bernier is the better goalie.

If it's true then we get:
A better goaltender, under a low cap hit for the next season who will probably remain at a lower cap hit than Quick for the next 3-4 seasons.
