This thread is not simply inspired by Bernier's great goal scored today vs. the Blues. He has played extremely well, and at the very least, he will be a legit NHLer, if not an elite powerforward. He definitely does not look like the bust so many have labeled him to be; he has at the very least justified his draft position. Just last year, many stat-lovers were labeling him a bust because of his declining numbers in the QMJHL, even though posters like Marty Mcinnis and X-Sharkie were praising his improvements in other areas of his game. It is a good way to show that stats are not everything.
