Very solid hybrid goaltender, who is very technical and relies on his superior positioning over athletic ability, though he can perform athletic feats all the same, just not on the same level that Quick can. I would say Bernier has a better hockey sense though.
He's also handles the puck pretty well... or at least in comparison to Quick who handles it like a gernade.
