Hearing the Leafs have put in an offer to G Jonathan Bernier.
Yeah i posted that as well...i think shes reading the fake rumour guys lol...
If it's for MacArthur or Reimer then go for it. But if a 1st is involved then i say pass.
Yeah we can't afford to start trading firsts yet. That's something you do when you're to the point of contending or going deep. Chances are if we start the season with this roster that first rounder could be a high pick. I wonder what LA's asking price would be. I've heard pretty high for a back up.
really don't want bernier. But if it's for Mac and Franson/Gunnarson, i think i would take a shot. A Reimer/Bernier tandem has so much potential it HAS to work out right? with our luck they will both be out of the NHL in two seasons time.
I don't believe that rumour at all. People in the media are always "hearing" things, yet don't have anyone else to back up their claims.
Has anyone confirmed this offer?
Nope....so i doubt its true...of course all of the tsn guys are on hollidays so i doubt we hear from them
She did work for LeafsTV so maybe she caught wind of something through old colleagues. Until something tangible comes up I wouldn't be expecting much of it though.
With that said, I saw the rumored deal was something like Frattin + Scrivens + 3rd. If so, I think I do that. Not exactly a great deal for us, but we really have no room for Frattin unless MacArthur/Connolly/Lombardi are moved and Kadri needs a spot soon or he'll be demanding a trade
Sure Bernier has not proved much, but he definitely has a high potential and is clearly ready for the NHL. Bernier and Reimer wouldn't be a bad tandem, as I'm sure one of them would quickly emerge as a #1 goalie.
"The way they play offense here is difficult for any quarterback," he said. "Every snap is an incredible decision. They're in a one-back offense, they can't run the ball against certain looks so they have to audible to some kind of a pass or a creative run to get away from trouble.
"There's never a play in the game where Stafford can just turn around, hand the ball off and catch his breath. Every play he's researching the defense and they throw as much as anyone."
He's got a .910sv%, but Reimer has maintained a .911 on a far worse team. Plus they're the same age. I'd be happy to go with Reimer and just let the guy develop.
I think people are just bored and looking to stir something up because there is nothing out there right now. Burke has said countless times that he has no intention on pursuing Bernier. He said it on Prim Time and I don't see them doing anything on that front.
Unless he's suddenly become desperate, then I guess. I don't personally mind Bernier, I don't really know if it makes the Leafs better... I mean I would certainly prefer Bernier-Reimer for next year because I don't see Reimer being a part of a trade to LA.
If Burke deals for Bernier and then signs a veteran goalie (whoever else is out there) then that would make more sense. But like I said I doubt it's true... Burke said he wants a vet starting goalie not a young kid.
Keep them both Nonis.
Maple Leafs and Steelers fan for life.
I remember when a lot of people thought Bernier was a better prospect than Quick was.... obviously didn't work out that way but I still think he has tons of potential.
If we can get him for a reasonable price I'd be all over it... but none of this top prospect/Kadri + high draft pick nonsense.
Had to be done! Go T-Rex
