Bernier update and new poll

A few weeks ago Jonathan Bernier tried out a new mask. However, no matter what he tried he wasn’t satisfied with the comfort level. He just didn’t like it, so he switched back to his original model.

In fact, he’s done with the new one altogether. “It’s just sitting there and I’m not going to use it anymore,” Bernier told MayorsManor. “I’ve tried different things, like changing the foam inside and it still doesn’t fit well. So, I’m keeping my old one.” Later he added, “I may be switching to another brand. I’m just waiting for that helmet to be ready.” So, stay tuned.

In the meantime, how about some reader response to a poll surrounding this topic. Which goalie mask is the best in Los Angeles Kings history?

If needed, images are avialable at the following links: Rogie Vachon  –  Kelly Hrudey  –  Robb Stauber  –  Jamie Storr  –  Stephane Fiset  –  Felix Potvin  –  Jason LaBarbera  –  Jonathan Quick.



Poll closes Friday at 1pm PST.
