wow love how everyone dumps on BERNIER for a ridiculous inexcusable call by the stripes. If anything I'd accept 2 mins and that's it. It was not Steve's fault the king turned around half a second before the hit. Sorry the ref blew it, gift wrapped it for the Kings and the league should be embarrassed they pandered to LA all series. The whole situation sucks but dumping on Bernier is not where the hate should go. He didn't cost us the game, the men in stripes did. Hope the Kings enjoy their tainted cup. Maybe next year they'll actually be unbiased...


Buy his jersey then, show your support.

I can't listen to excuses for what he did, especially tinfoil hat BS about a tainted Cup.

Game ain't over yet anyway.

It's one thing if you're a Kovy or a Parise and you do what he did, but when you're a Bernier-type, you gotta go. Might seem harsh, but he can't come back here after that.


Yep.

Relatively insignificant player that likely cost his team a chance at the cup? Get rid of him. Free Zharkov. Or sign a big body for the 4th line in the offseason.

While I agree the lack of officiating on the Stoll hit is one of the reasons that the Bernier play even happened, I cannot see him coming back after this. Not every fan will see it through any other lens than it being his fault. I don't see him back here. It'd be one thing if he had multiple years, but as a UFA? Nah.

I still can't believe how dumb Bernier was to put himself in that position. I shouldn't be surprised though, he's come close to a few questionable hits in the past rounds. I hope he's done as a Devil - it will be years if I can ever forgive him for his stupidity tonight. I feel absolutely horrible for the team right now.

And yet I'm starting to feel for him too. He overreacted to a questionable hit on his linemate, and was unlucky that Scuderi turned. He fvcked up, but the more time I have to think, the more i wonder if he deserves that hate. There's a part of me that would like to see him have a chance to redeem himself next year, though it's tough for 4th liners to really pull off redemption.

Yeah exactly. Good way to put it. I would have said it like that but I can't think straight right now.

Why couldn't that have gone as a doube minor with the league taking a look after the game for suspension. Why the officials felt they should HELP decide the winner is a disgrace to all of sports.

WIth that said our PK was putrid after that.

Yeah, and Tom Glavine pitched a lot of good games in 2007. Bill Buckner got a lot of big hits in 1986. I could fvckin go on all day.

could take or leave him at this point. He was trying to be aggressive and ended up doing something unbelievable stupid...even though scuderi was turning and it should've been a 2...Bernier could've still held up a bit, or changed directions.

he's a pretty good 4th liner to have around. I can forgive this I suppose

I'm not gonna castrate Bernier. The call on Gionta should've been made, and Scuderi turned at the last second like the p*ssy he is. This is all on O'Rourke. If I see O'Rourke crossing the street, I'm speeding up and running a red light if I have to.

Long time ago. And Graves had quite a history in NY by that point anyway.

This is a 4th line guy who the casual fans have no idea who he is. I dont see him re-signed. I'm personally not against it, but I dont think Bernier is back.

I didn't like the hit but to act like the guy is going to be banished out of the NHL after this is a bit of a quick reaction...he's a solid 4th line player and I feel he still belongs in the league. He proved it to everyone this year...even if he turned off his brain there for a few seconds.

Fvck Bernier

Good riddance

He has played his last game in a Devils jersey, and I hope he doesn't sniff the NHL ever again

Cost us the game....unforgivable.

I would take him back in a heart beat. He was a great find, and plays the game hard. When he really finds himself I can see him having a 20 goal season on a 4th line. Yeha the hit was dumb, but I'm not going to kill him over that. He was trying to get a big hit to get the team going (what the 4th line is suppose to do) and it did not work out. What we really should be talking about is the 3 goals we gave up. The team has to step up and kill that off not get flat on their heels and wine about the missed call before that.
