My Conclusion

The Islanders need a young dominating goalie type to go along with the nucleus of this team, which as we all know is a young and upcoming bunch.

Securing Bernier in a deal would have given the Islander’s that net-minder.

It’s easy for some to say, “Well, Bernier hasn’t proven anymore than Poulin or Nilsson have, that he is that stand-on-his head type goalie who has the potential to bring a Stanley Cup to the Island”.

My response to those who pose that question: “I don’t see the rest of the goalie needing teams in the NHL lining up offers to GM Garth Snow for Poulin or Nilsson!”
