No reason to think Bernier's any good w/ that Save % even at that high a pick that he was. Goalies come out of nowhere, Craig Anderson/Tim Thomas/Backstrom/Lundqvist/Nabokov/Crawford/Kipper/Halak/Rinne/Hedberg/Hiller/etc. Except the rarities like Price, it doesn't seem worth the investment to go out and pay that much for a goalie when you've got a bunch pro already. Montoya/DiPietro clearly haven't been worth it that high. Bernier so far no. Price is the exception. you could make the argument for Lehtonen that high, but w/ his injuries and for what ATL got out of him, probably not worth it.

Is it just me or does anyone else think Bernier is over hyped? Every time I see him in goal he looks average. Nothing special.

He's pretty average. He had a short streak a couple seasons ago where he looked like the man. Quick wasn't cemented in as a number one at that time.

True but if were REALLY honest with ourselves here, Wedge and Kincaid are also crazilly overhyped by our fan base. We can certainly hope so that they'll do the job but with goalies you simply never know.

You should specify Jonathan Bernier in your title since they already have a Bernier.

 

Personally, I'll pass.  There's no reason to pay beyond a 2nd round pick for Bernier.

Yea that. For what reason would we go out of our way for him? It's also unlikely the Devils will have a different goal-tending situation next year barring injury to either Moose or Marty,

I mean, I agree that goaltending is a concern but I feel like we would be better off using our tradable assets on a forward which we desperately need. Not saying we shouldn't get a goaltender, just saying that in terms of trading I would rather trade for a forward. I think they could get a serviceable goaltender in UFA if they wanted to

You should put rumor in the title then. Because there's no source claiming there's an interest. It's just people wanting Bernier to succeed Brodeur and inventing their own story.

fair enough, but we don't know that there's no source as much as we don't know there is. Hockey360 is in Quebec which is from where Bernier is from so they could be getting infos.
