The guy had back surgery. You go have some quack work on your back, see how you feel. Much like the guy across the hall, Dwight Howard, this is a throwaway year for him. He rehabs, he works, he gets back to it. He's earned that and he's earned some slack. If you want to blame someone for Bernier not playing, blame the guy behind the bench.
I remember Quick was asked about others emulating his style or his advice to youngsters who want to be goalies. His response was to the effect of they better not because his style is very taxing physically. After hearing that I remember thinking he might not have a very long career.

Hopefully it is just a throwaway year and not the start of an ongoing issue.
