Jonathan Bernier Viewing Party

120

Missing hockey? Here’s a good performance from Jonathan Bernier, wherein he turns aside 42 shots to win 3-2 over the Phoenix Coyotes on March 19. Good examples of, when on his game, how calm he is in the net and how well he handles the puck. Keeping in mind it’s just a one-game glimpse, it’s worth your while if you have some time to kill and want to get a feel for how Bernier tends the net.

  • NotSince67

    Just throwing this out there but by acquiring Bernier and taking on extra salary at the position (over Scrivens) it’s made it more difficult to resign Kadri and Franson while trying to fix what wasn’t broken.

  • Jimmy Keating

    @NotSince67  
    While Reimer’s S% was great, the GA was bottom half of the league. GA needs to come down. You need brilliant goaltending to win the cup. Bernier may be just that.

  • mapleleafforever

    Jimmy Keating GA needs to come down by bringing shots down. top 10 sv percentage means goaltending wasn’t the problem.

  • mapleleafforever

    Jimmy Keating Maybe Bernier will be ‘elite’ versus Reimer being ‘good,’ it’s tough to say, but we have no idea what Bernier is yet. Pro scouts are hopefully on the money with this one

  • Jimmy Keating

    @mapleleafforever Jimmy Keating  
    Not necessarily, though I do a agree the shots against need to come down (clearly).

    What was the shot quality on the bulk of his shots? How many shots against were rebounds that could he been gobbled up and/or smothered? We don’t have that data, unfortunately.

    Curious to look at this game and see how he plays. I didn’t get to see a lot of the West Coast games.

    ECHO….. echo…..

  • MaxwellHowe

    @NotSince67 More difficult, but not even near impossible.  Overall though, the Leafs are not spending an inordinate amount of money on their goalies.

  • mapleleafforever

    MaxwellHowe Could’ve been spending even less and getting just as good goaltending, is the point, which leaves more for Franson & Kadri

  • Xxxxxnew

    So they should just get what they’re asking for as UFAs?

  • Dangle_My_Berries

    kings get hemmed in their zone there a couple times

  • Burtonboy

    Dangle_My_Berries I thought only the Leafs did that . What kind of team corsi do the Kings have :))))))))))

  • skiingallday

    @mapleleafforever skiingallday when yo yell echo in a parking garage or some other deserted place and you can hear it echo for a long time….. that’s what it feels like on here today

  • Dangle_My_Berries

    Burtonboy Dangle_My_Berries i was baffled at what I saw, surely this video has been tampered with….

  • mapleleafforever

    Burtonboy Dangle_My_Berries A very good one actually. The anecdotal evidence you are providing about the Kings being hemmed in this one game you’re watching aside…

  • Burtonboy

    @mapleleafforever Burtonboy Dangle_My_Berries I was being a bit sarcastic more then anything . Doesn’t surprise me one bit that the Kings are a good possession team . They are a dammed good club

  • mapleleafforever

    Burtonboy Dangle_My_Berries Ahh, sorry… yes they are, they have an amazing down low game. They just get it deep and cycle the shit out of other teams.

    Leafs and Kadri still far apart in contract negations. Kadri’s camp started with 6mill per for 6 years, willing to go down to 5mill..(cont)https://twitter.com/DavidAlter590https://twitter.com/DavidAlter590/status/371374700712058880
    As a way to help out Leafs cap situation. Team Insists cap isn’t the issue… More interested in lower bride type deal for Kadri.

    Wow if this is true I doubt we see Kadri in a Leafs Uni anytime soon .

  • Burtonboy

    Meanwhile Franson’s camp is still wanting a long-term deal as well.

  • Burtonboy

    https://twitter.com/DavidAlter590
    Hearing the counter for Kadri has been in the 2 x 3 mill range which makes it difficult. Far apart in both term and cash

  • Bon Scott was a Leaf fan

    Burtonboy 
    LOL 6 million (even 5 is laughable).
    STFU, sign the bridge contract,  and get your ass ready for camp, Kadri!!

  • Bon Scott was a Leaf fan

    Burtonboy 
    2 x 3 is reasonable.

  • Burtonboy

    Bon Scott was a Leaf fan Burtonboy We have a problem Huston ( if true …Alter has been known to get things very wrong before )

  • Dan39

    Bon Scott was a Leaf fan Burtonboy Fucking mouthy little punk. 2 x 3 mil – no more negotiations!

  • Dan39

    Burtonboy Bon Scott was a Leaf fan Sounds accurate – in fact,  completely predictable that that little shit is being totally unreasonable in his salary demands while telling the media he’s doing the opposite. Hope Nonis gives him the Bergevin treatment.

  • Burtonboy

    How do you know this to be accurate ?

    https://twitter.com/43_Kadri going by what I’ve been told. Happy to set the record straight.

  • dlb eh

    Burtonboy Yaknowwhat 
    i don’t like seeing Kadri responding to media types, especially embarrassing them like that.  they are commonly petty little men who use their soapbox to get even.
    worst case scenario for the fans, is too much get said (even if it’s utter shit) that Kadri ends up having to move somewhere else to resume his career.  what do these media fucks care after all?

  • dlb eh

    wiski 
    that’s a good response.  good for you Alter, not pushing his button, not acting like a dickhole.  give it time, i suppose.
