Quick and Bernier

Leaf fan here, I was just curious as to how much you guys think the Kings will play Bernier in this shortened season. Quick was obviously stellar last year and in such a short year could probably handle a workload of 43+ games..

Do you think they'll let him see all of that action or will Bernier help him out a bit more than I think?

In a truncated season, I could see something like a 35-13 game split between Quick and Bernier. If they want to give Quick more rests, 30-18 split. Quick being the workhorse that he is, I'm thinking you'd see him get closer to 40 starts than 30 starts.

Seems to be that Lombardi is trying to fulfill Bernier's trade request, so there's a good chance Bernier will get a starting position elsewhere.

If he does stay, then I guess he'd get between 10 and 12 games. Fatigue plays big in a shortened season, so Quick may get a little more rest this time.

I'd say Quick gets around 35 games. Sutter tends to lean on his #1 goaltender pretty heavily.

I imagine 35-38 starts would be a good bet. A lot will likely depend on the situation, if the Kings have to dig themselves out of a hole in late march and april like last year, you might be right. But if they're solidly holding a playoff spot, we could see more Bernier down the stretch.

Bernier will get 6 starts and then is gone at the deadline.

Unless one of the goalies in Manchester heats up, I don't think Bernier will be dealt. You really need that good backup in this truncated schedule. Also, you never know whats going to happen when playoffs start. Quick just had surgery in August and may be susceptible to injuries.

Due to budget cuts, the light at the end of the tunnel will be turned off

With Sutter at the helm, I see Quick getting 40+ games in the regular season. Quick loves to play and Sutter loves his #1 goalie.

I don't think any player on the teams career was hurt more then Bernier. Guy would have had 30+ games in the NHL this season with Quick on IR.

This was the season to prove he could be a starter and maybe work a trade for a long-term position. Now he's back to the normal. Guy with talent but who hasn't gotten a chance to show it and isn't going to get it this season...
