How did we lose our 2nd round pick? Bernier?

Yeah.

The Leafs should trade either bernier or reimer actually. Not both. I would rather they keep reimer but I can live with either one. They don't seem to respond well to the current goaltending tandem situation.

Agreed.  Perhaps the Rangers would bite on one for some insurance with Lundqvist out?  I bet we could get a 2nd or 3rd for Reimer or if we wanted to go big, a 2nd and good prospect for Bernier.  Either would be a stopgap until Henrik gets back and then can be flipped in the offseason as Bernier is an RFA and Reimer is an affordable 2 mil.

As for Winnik, with his rise in popularity over the last few days/weeks.  Is it possible a team could panic and offer up a #1 pick?

But if they trade both there can be a strong push by the Leafs to lose all 25 remaining games and finish dead last for McDavid.

trade Bernier for a 2nd and prospect. He is not our goalie of the future.  We have Bibeau and  Gibson to look at.

Actually it's interesting to see bernier with almost identical stats compared to luongo.

Bernier is too young to give up on IMO.. Id move Reimer out.. I know he is not much older but I think JB has a good upside..  But if either is moved or both? So be it...

If we get a 2nd and a mid level prospect for Winnik Id be happy... Id like to see it happen now though. He plays very hard and Im afraid of an injury happening and we get nothing

Bernier is going ask for something around 5 mil a season, and is no where good enough.

I couldn't agree with this more. It's the truth. I hope the Leaf brass realize this.

Bernier: 16 W, 18 L, .914 SV %, 2.72 GAA, 1090 SV,  39 GP, 5 OTL

Luongo: 21 W, 14 L, .920 SV%, 2.38 GAA, 1213 SV, 46 GP, 10 OTL


Bernier is as "almost identical" to Luongo as Luongo is as "almost identical" to Rinne or Price (at least in terms of GAA). So not really at all.

Edit: A similarly off comparison would be Neuvirth has almost identical numbers to Bernier...

Carey Price had similar numbers in 2008/2009 n 2009/2010 to JB.. I remember habs fans wanted him gone too.. Got to be patient.. Not saying he is Carey but if he agrees to a reasonable contract Id keep him

He was also 21-22, Bernier will be 27 by the start of next season.

I'd be content with Reimer in net during a rebuild. I would definitely trade Bernier.

I feel the same. He has moments but he seems to have some flaws which, given the state of the team/the $ he'll command/his age, make him expendable IMO.
