Solid AHL signing. He tested the market a little bit after turning down the contract originally. Smart moves on both parties I think.

+1, especially IF he regains the form he showed glimpses of when he played, albeit briefly, in Buffalo.

Bernier seemed like he didn't care in training camp. Seemed like he was giving little effort or the game was way too fast for him. I'm not sure how that will improve over a longer time frame of a season.

Your unconditional rejection of violence makes you smugly think of yourselves as noble, as enlightened, but in reality it is nothing less than abject moral capitulation to evil. Unconditional rejection of self-defense, because you think its a supposed surrender to violence, leaves you no resort but begging for mercy or offering appeasement.

He is a frustrating player, 158 points in 358 NHL games is pretty healthy, yet the guy couldn't make our team with its horific RW depth!

He just needs to get his a$$ in gear and get motivated he could have a decent NHL career.

Look over your shoulder Palmieri, this ones for you.

It's a done deal, only a matter of time for some rigorous conditioning programming and learning the system.

RW Steve Bernier

Age: 26
Date of birth: March 31, 1985
Place of birth: Quebec City, Que, Canada
Ht: 6-2 Wt: 216
Shoots: R
NHL Seasons: 6
Drafted by San Jose in 2003 (1/16).

ASSETS:
Owns good size and some untapped scoring potential. Can play the role of power forward effectively in short spurts. Is also a decent penalty-killer. Posted Image
FLAWS: Lacks consistency. Needs more work on his skating in order to emerge as a consistent scoring threat. His physical conditioning has been an issue. Posted Image
Physical depth winger. Posted Image

Based on preseason and general lack of interest in people signing him:

Current flaws: Lack of foot speed. Appears not to stay mentally involved in plays. Does not seem to possess any "plus" skills.

This guy is 6'3" 220 lbs and was selected right before Parise in the draft. Technically, this guy should be a top line RW based on draft and supposed skillset.

Now, he has 2 pts in 5GP in Albany. Does this guy not care about playing in the NHL? Anyone watch him play lately, what's the report on him right now?

Note: I know he doesn't have a NHL contract.

Trevor Kidd was drafted much higher than Marty Brodeur too...you see where I'm going with this... :whistling: :P
