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.
Quick loyalists keep spewing out this ******** excuse for his piss poor play.
"He had back surgery guys! He needs to rehab!"
Then why would you play him? Bernier has been tagged as being capable of being a #1 goaltender. Why would you NOT play him over a guy who supposedly needs a full season to get back into "his game". Oh, I get it, the defense is shakey without guys like Greene and Mitchell as the cornerstones. Then why not play the goalie that is more technically sound instead of playing the goalie who relies on athleticism (he had back surgery guys!!!). It's funny how LA's goalie situation as seen as a good problem - mostly for the fact the coaching staff doesn't know how to handle it.
