You can see he can get a little frazzled with a lot of activity around the net. Definately an area that Berniier superior to Reimer. Not to say he doesn't battle pretty well though. What I've seen of Bernier on terrible internet streams left me impressed, but I have been equally impressed by Reimer at times. Tbh quite dissapointed some times aswell but he's a young goalie on a team that fails to play in front of him occasionally.
Don't get me wrong here guys didn't mean to come across as a dbag there. Its not that I don't like Bernier, its just the cost to acqure ( Kadri and a 1st/2nd seems to be the consensus among kings fans?) and the slight uncertainty that still remains (well as I perceive it anyways). I would actually rather Luongo if it came down to it. But you can file me in the Reimer pile for now.
No problem no offense taken i understand in the heat of the moment reactions. It proberly didnt help when i said to continue the bashing of bernier in this thread. I ment it more of tounge and cheek sorta response and see how that can mislead you but i do apprecaite the appolgy. I thank you for saying i cleared up my opinion on why Bernier is a better goalie didnt think i would get thru to anyone. I truely think they would be a good duo and they can feed off each other to make the leafs a play off contender.
As for what kings fan want for Bernier there is a wide difference of opinion but the one thing we seem to agree on is a frist round pick. We all feel we need one at minimum for him. As for the player thats were we differ some like myself think frattin is the player. I think Kadri would work as well. Others want aston carter some want ross others want biggs. In all my offers i protect the leafs from it being a top 9 pick but with Kadri i make it top 7 protected as imo Kadri has less value then frattin or ross or big or aston. In this thread there was a deal almost made having moller and bernier loktionov for ashton ross and condition top 9 protected frist round pick almost reached between me and vinnybaby.
