And what exactly has Bernier proven?

I hope not. Bernier shouldn't be sent to a team that has another goalie who's got a long term contract. Besides that, they likely need someone older and more mentally solid as a backup for when Bryz melts down.

As I was always expecting Quick to excel like this (well maybe not that amazing), I have always pinned Bernier to land as Broduers replacement in NJ.

Bernier was the top dog in the goalie department for prospects, now since he is DEFINITELY behind Quick, I'm definitely curious to see where he pans out.

When do you think LA deals him, and where do you think he's going to go?

I say one of New Jersey or Toronto as DL would likely want to move him out of the conference. If Toronto, I think it could be rather quickly, if New Jersey then I could see a mid-season deal, at the trade deadline, or even after the deadline. Likely what Broduer wants to do will dictate thinks from New Jersey's side.

Based on the returns of Lindback and Bobrovsky, LA, if they strictly want draft picks back, should be able to get a high 2nd/low 1st and another pick or two back as well, like a 3rd or 4th.

EDIT: Can a mod edit my brutal spelling in the title. Sorry about that
I'm gonna guess. Did you write "Jonathon"?


How about Washington? They've been dying for a franchise goalie for years now. It's what's keeping Ovie from at least reaching the Final.

I am going to say Johnny B doesn't get traded till at least the trade deadline.

Someones Goalie is not going to work out this coming season.

They're invested in Braden Holtby.

OTT
- C Anderson 31+ already and emerging, but limited track record as a #1
- Auld 31+ limited NHL experience and aging
- B Bishop who? less experience than Bernier at the NHL level
- R Lehner prospect with less exp than Bishop
- very weak pool of goal prospects and two aging vets in net

the why?
OTT on paper has a big question when it comes to who is going to be in net for them in 2-5 years and beyond. the two vets will likely be on the downside or retired. the two kids are young and have less than 10 games of NHL experience at this point.

OTT has depth at the forward position at the prospect level. i didn't check on what picks they have next summer.

OTT is in the east and as far from LA as possible

Bernier to NJ still makes a lot of sense. NJ just can't really afford a #1 pick since they have to get rid of 1 in the next 2 years for the 1st Kovalchuk contract. I just don't know anything about NJs prospect depth and if they have young wingers that they can afford to trade. If they lock up Parise long term, they may be willing to let a young promising winger go in a trade.

Brodeur will probably sign a 1 year deal and split a lot of the regular season with his backup. Great chance for Bernier to get some starts and learn from one of the best goalies in NHL history.

Pretty sure they're confident in Lehner, he's only 20 and has been in the AHL the past two years and won a Calder Cup already, don't see a fit.

If they could get Tedenby from NJ that'd be nice, he's on the smaller side 5'10" but he's a very skilled LW.

Goalies get hot and then crash. Look what Neuvirth did last playoffs for the Caps. .912 save percentage, 2.34 GAA, one shutout. He had a fantastic playoffs all things considered. Buuuut he plays this year and he is a back up.


Young goalies having ONE good playoff outing does not make you god. Bernier has proven more in his regular season starts. He as AT LEAST proven that he has the skills on a consistent basis. Holtby might just have been running on adrenaline and got hot at the right time. He might come in next year attempting to be the starter and have a run like Neuvirth did.

13-13-5 .903 save perecentage. 2.82 gaa. Not starting numbers at all.


How about Varlamov? He had a similar story.

A fantastic 08-09 post-season. Then a lackluster 09-10 regular season. Both of those guys were considered "The new Capitals No. 1" after those runs, and both crumbled under the pressure of every day NHL goaltending.

You're telling me that that organization is now FULLY INVESTED in a guy who has just 35 games of NHL experience spread over two years just because of a hot playoff run? That's pretty ****ing stupid if they are.

Well they're the front runners for Luongo, so I'd assume they are in the market for a goaltender

The one team that should be interested is the Edmonton Oilers. Package Bernier and of our dmen (Martinez, Hickey, Muzzin?) for someone like Gagner or Pajaarvi

You're asking Tambellini to focus on goaltending and defense. Is he even capable of that?

But they wouldn't be stupid to invest in Bernier who has 47 games of NHL experience?

The only real options I see are NJ, Toronto, Edmonton. Then maybe NYI and Chicago. The rest have re-upped goaltenders, or traded good assets for young goaltenders already.

Your point is worth noting. However, Bernier has proven he can at least be a consistent back up. Whereas Holtby has yet to do so.

He has had ONE hot playoff run and that's it.

In my mind and in order

1. New Jersey - no explanation needed


Then a gap

2 Edmonton - have all the offense, this with Dubnyk solidifies goaltending, just need defense

3 Toronto - if Burke looses out on the Lou sweepstakes, maybe

And Bernier has had zero playoff games played. I'm not trying to say you're wrong, but I just think you're putting too much into Bernier without giving Holtby any credit, they have Neuvirth and Holtby, why would they need Bernier when he has just as much or less proven as them? Just seems redundant for Washington to invest in Bernier, I think NJ would be a better option for Jonathan.

Again, not saying you're wrong, just that I don't see a reason for Washington to get Bernier.

Why not? If we're talking about a players trade, they have what we need. And if it's picks, barring a turnaround which could happen, they're going to be good picks. Even if it's a team DL doesn't like, it's his job to explore the best options and they would be a damn good option.

I actually don't think Bernier would stabilize Edmonton at all. If anything I think he's found himself prone to lose concentration during adversity which there is a lot of in Edmonton. The issues with their defense aren't just issues with defensemen, they have forwards who have to learn how to keep the puck out of the net too, and that takes time.

He'd be another questionmark, thrown in with a bunch of them in a city where he'd be under massive pressure.

I wrote Janathan, lol.

As for Washington, I'd give Holtby a shot next year before I looked elsewhere. Kid earned that right by saving Washington in the playoffs.

Unless they traded him for draft picks. At the deadline, draft picks have their lowest value and Bernier would easily fetch a 1st - plus.

You under estimate the upside of Lehner, and also Bishop to some degree, while Anderson is also signed for two more years (I believe) so Bernier would be a backup until then most likely. Ottawa is very well set in net actually.

Not fully invested, no, but I think Holtby has earned the right to have a shot at being the guy in Washington.
