Bernier was a rare speciman when he was drafted, which is why no other goalie has gone higher than him since 06, when he was drafted. Obviously his value is not going to be judged by that though, a lot has changed since 06, but if Bernier was in this draft there would be no question who the top goaltending prospect would be, it would be Bernier by a mile.
There was just some draft analyst on The Point and he was just asked about Berniers value. I pretty much scribed exactly what he said. He said Bernier's value is dim due to there being 2 North American goalies who are graded higher than Bernier upon being drafted and one neck and neck. He said you can make an argument that bernier is developed and could possibly step in now but questions have been raised if Bernier can be a starter in the NHL.
