And how does Bishop have more value than Bernier? At the time of the trade, Bishop had actually proven less than Bernier had, he's a year older, and isn't as highly regarded by scouts.

Well, for one, Quick's numbers are better because he's a better goalie. But that's not really a knock on Bernier because Quick is one of the best. Bernier's numbers also suffer because 1) he rarely plays so he can never get into a rhythm (very important for a lot of goalies) and 2) many of his starts were during the time period when the Kings were just awful. Like, Columbus bad.
Same arguments we heard for Fiset, Denis, Toskola, etc, etc. To many teams have been burned on these supposed great young goaltenders that are just stuck behind someone.

Steve Mason is worth more than Bernier. Book it. And why wouldnt you? He's proven more at the same age.
