Maybe he does, maybe he doesn't. Most coaches will go with the hot hand, and Bernier is playing "better" so it makes sense to start him until he craps the bed. (By "better" I mean closer to mediocrity.) Also, Howie's contract ends this season, Bernie is here for another season, so it actually makes more sense to let Bernie take the reigns and let Howie be the backup. I know this is a lot like the South Park election episode, but I'll take the less stinky of the two options.
