Not saying that past problems are predictors of future ones, in this regard, but people shouldn't have been expecting this to be bigger than it was.
Not proven at all? Backed his team to a 1st overall finish in the 06-07 QMJHL regular season and lost 1 game out of 17 played in the playoffs to his team's first championship and earned playoff MVP. Named to the 2010 AHL all-star team and had a 2.03 GAA/.936 SV% in that season with the Monarchs. And has done pretty well in his limited NHL appearances; Quick has just done better and stole the show. From what I remember watching of Bernier, he's very capable of being a starter.
