Bernier has been worthless. Tallon waived the wrong guy at training camp.

I'd be alright with Smith on the Leafs due to all the injuries. Though I don't know what we'd do once the Monster and Giguere come back.

lol @ Florida.

I know that many of my fellow Habs fans will not agree with it but I would like Gauthier to place a claim on Bernier. It's not a risky move anyway.

First I was like wtf is Florida doing?

Then I saw his stats and pretty sure he isn't tradeable.

I am totally on board with it. Try him with Plekanec and Cammalleri. At worse, we cut him loose in the off-season by not giving him his QO.

Bernier seems like the type of player made for the playoffs.

I could see him being claimed.

I'm pretty sure Tallon has been asking teams if they had interest in him, I guess that failed so he's off for nothing.

No. Doesn't use his size nearly enough.

Stats don't always tell the whole story, so the question to Panthers' fans is: was Bernier really that atrocious?

Tampa wants Smith to back up Roloson?

That means they are going to burry McElhinney in the AHL for the rest of the season...poor Curtis.

Bernier 2 million cap hit. RFA July 1st.

Safe to say he won't get his qualifying offer and will become a UFA July 1st.

Yup. Doesn't use his body at all. Hits nobody, rarely makes any plays. He's just there. On a team that doesn't hit he could have really stood out if he played more physical. He's pretty useless. I'd be surprised if anyone picked him up. He's not cheap for a player who does nothing but take a roster spot.

As a Vancouver fan this makes me chuckle a bit.

Too bad for Bernier though. I liked the guy.

he is worth it just for the great first game he always turns in on a new club! some team looking for wins and points could claim him for one game and get a nice 2 goals from him :p

Rivet was placed on re-entry also.

Now his cap hit is something like $400k.
