Awful for the Leafs.


Bernier is listed on Hockey's Future as an 8.0B prospect.

Reimer is listed as an 8.0C prospect, and has more games logged than Bernier. Why would the Leafs trade for Bernier when they have Reimer already?

Reimer suffered a major injury for a goalie (neck/concussion) and struggled to come back to play full strength. The Leafs needed him back badly and rushed his recovery.

The Leafs are looking for a guy to cover a 1-year period, play 30-40 games and give Reimer the time to reinstate himself as the No.1 goalie.

Bernier would represent a complete abandonment of Reimer and there is no reason to justify that decision. It's just awful.
