Burkie needs to land a proven #1 goalie.

He said he isn't going to acquire a young, unproven goalie. So that is him indirectly saying he isn't going to acquire Bernier.

Although if we cannot land a #1 goalie before the season starts, then I am all for getting someone like a Steve Mason or Jonathan Bernier as an upgrade over both Gus and Scrivens, as a Reimer/Gus > a Reimer/Scrivens duo in net. So if we go into next season with Reims/Scrivens, then all we did was make our goaltending situation worse.

Bernier or Mason can battle Reims for the #1 spot all season and we get an upgrade in net over last season.

But I am only on board of acquiring Steve Mason or Bernier if we cannot land a proven #1 goalie.
