About Jonathan Bernier
Ever since the departure of Hall of Fame goalie Eddie Belfour back in 2006 the goaltending position has been anything but steady for the Toronto Maple Leafs. Over that span the crease has been a revolving door, with many goalies getting chewed up and spit out by a combination of a porous defense and a demanding media and fan base. If only they'd held on to Tuuka Rask...
Well, the newest man to try his luck at finally seizing the number one job in Toronto, like Rask, is a former first round pick. Bernier was selected 11th overall in the 2006 NHL Entry Draft by the Los Angeles Kings and was expected by many to be the goalie of the future for the Kings. However, Bernier became expendable with the emergence of Jonathan Quick, who over the past few seasons has established himself as perhaps the best goalie in the game, earning a Stanley Cup and a Conn Smythe trophy along the way. It was clear that Bernier, now 25, wasn't going to get a chance to prove himself in Los Angeles, so the deal to the Leafs made a lot of sense for everybody.
Though he will get a better chance to earn the number spot in Toronto than he would have had in Los Angeles, that by no means ensures that he won't have to earn that title. Incumbent James Reimer is coming off a very good season, and while he might not have shown the early potential that Bernier did he will be hard to push out of the crease. Ultimately, coach Randy Carlyle might decide to split the workload down the middle, and ride the hot hand if the Leafs make it to the playoffs for a second year in a row.
