Steve Mason is worth more than Bernier. Book it. And why wouldnt you? He's proven more at the same age.
Mason has proven he can melt at the drop of a hat. He's proven that he has bankruptwhat was an unparralelled amount of equity that he built early on. He's now a bad goalie and earning way maore than he's worth to a club, and that's not that much. Bernier has not had a chance to do this. The team paying for him will be paying for a top end talent, without having built any credit. He will draw a return, but the trading team will be taking risk. Any success in life is built and lost with risk. But, Bernier's talent and character is a solid hedge.
