In a GM rumblings piece by Pierre LeBrun and Scott Burnside of ESPN.com that was posted late Wednesday, Jonathan Bernier expressed his thoughts on an impending trade that will take him out of Los Angeles.
“I’m still part of the L.A. Kings and it’s been a great ride, but I feel really confident and I want to get to the next level to get a real chance to hopefully be a No. 1 somewhere,” Bernier told ESPN.com over the phone Wednesday. “I’m sure the Kings will make the right decision. If I’m staying there, I’m staying there. If not, I’m ready for the challenge.”
There are two other Bernier quotes as well as a great shot of the goaltender, smiling, in his custom DaveArt.com Kings mask.
