looks like bernier might get a couple more starts than normal at the start of the season. playing well in those starts can only increase his trade value

Thatís exactly it, you donít just jump straight into a surgery. As someone thatís had a triple lamidectomy and just yesterday had a Synovial Cyst on my spinal cord the size of a dime removed from the area where my L4/L5 Facets used to be, Surgery is the LAST resort, not the first, second or even third option.

First thing for a normal person like me is Pain Management and Physical Therapy. For top notch athlete like Quick its probably visa versa, PT then PM if PM at all. Surgery is 2 or 3 steps up the ladder.

When I was diagnosed with Spinal Stenosis in my L3, L4 and L5 in 2010, we tried PM and PT. When that didnít work, we went to PM, PT and Decompression Therapy. After that we went to PM, PT, DT and Laser and Ultrasonic Therapy. After that we went into a Lamidectomy, a highly invasive major bone removal surgery with a recovery period of 1 year with PM and PT.

No, Bernier makes more sense as insurance against Quick missing any time.

This is exactly why you don't trade Bernier unless the price is right, and until Quick makes a full recovery.

Fans expect the coach to play the goalie that gives the team the best chance to win.

That doesn't mean the fans would turn on Jon Quick. He just won the Conn Smythe, so that isn't going to happen. Quick would get every opportunity to play and be the #1 goalie we all know he is capable of being.

Here's the scenario:

JB goes on a hot winning streak in JQ's absence. Upon JQ's return, JB sits on the bench (and rightly so) . JQ struggles game after game, letting in one soft goal after another and is struggling to find his game.

Do you really think that it's that far fetched to say that fans will be demanding that JB be the starter? I'm not saying what Sutter will do. I'm just saying in a given scenario, fans will turn on JQ and support JB being the starter.

It would take an extended period of time for that to happen. In your scenario if Quick were to come back and play that poorly there is nothing that prevents the Kings from sending Quick down to Manchester on a conditioning assignment to get a lot of playing time while Bernier handles the load in LA.

Once Quick returned to form, he would be the #1 again most likely.

Again, I'm not saying what management or Sutter will do. I'm saying how fans would react to JQ struggling. Many will hit the panic button and you know it.

I'm just relieved that we still have Bernier.

Judging by your responses Black..you aren't aware...Quick is our starter, and carried the team to the Stanley Cup. He also just signed a 10 year contract. Just keepin ya in the loop that's all.
I don't think he meant JB will steal JQ's job. I think this is the perfect opportunity for JB (and the team) to get JB some work and showcase him for a later trade. If he does well, it will up his value. That's all. I'm a fan of both goalies. JQ is the starter. JB needs work to prove himself to the NHL.

Update from Hammond:

[UPDATE: Just had a quick chat with assistant general manager Ron Hextall. Hextall said Quick and the Kings had been aware of the back issue since the start of summer, but that therapy, and not a surgical procedure, had initially been recommended. Hextall said that the recovery, through therapy, ``wasn't coming along quite like we hoped, so the next step was to go this route.'' Hextall said Quick should be ready for full activity ``sometime around'' the scheduled start of training camp, but noted that every player's recovery time is different. That also assumes, of course, that training camp will start on time...]

His back obviously needed surgery! When you carry the weight of the Kings franchise through the middle of the season like he did, it's no wonder!

You're right. Carrying an entire team on his back definitely took a toll on Quickie.
