Kukla's Korner Hockey

from Tony Gallagher of the Vancouver Province,
Now that everyone knows that the L.A. Kings’ young goaltender Jonathan Bernier has requested a trade, he’s likely severely impacted his own less-than-spectacular trade value for more than the obvious reasons.
Not only has it been announced to one and all that he wants to leave, he’s also cast some aspersions on his own character by wanting to leave a championship team immediately after its success, because he can’t see himself playing enough behind Jonathan Quick.
It indicates he has no sense of patience or development. It indicates he wants to rush himself into a starting position, apparently for-getting that goaltenders now can play into their 40s if they keep themselves in great physical condition.
