The Goalies Archive

The Good:  Bernier is a hybrid stand-up and butterfly goaltender with great reflexes, is very quick moving from post-to-post with tremendous puck-handling skills around the net. He plays big in big games – except his performance in the 2006 CHL Top Prospects game, wherein the young goaltender allowed six goals on 31 shots in 32 minutes of work.  He plays with supreme poise and confidence, and can steal a game all on his own. He is also capable of shaking off bad goals, getting the Kings back into action. Bernier is a cheap ($975,000), talented goaltender with a ton of upside. If it wasn’t for Quick, Bernier would be the starting goaltender in Los Angeles right now.

The Bad: He is occasionally prone to get agitated in net when facing intense traffic, but generally manages to keep a level head. Can he handle the pressure of the NHL, or will he be another in a long line of goalies ruined by being rushed to the big league too quickly? That will be the question asked for the next couple of years.
