Mixed in with the initial tweets announcing Jonathan Quick’s pending mega-deal was this:
Lisa Dillman, the voice of reason:
Oh. Well, I’m glad that’s settled.
The reason to keep Jon Bernier is that it’s important to have a back-up goalie whom you trust. If Jonathan Quick, super-athletic goalie that he is, were ever to get inj***d, are we really willing to entrust our season to Martin Jones? And I like Martin Jones. But come on.
And here’s another reason: Jonathan Quick isn’t going to make it five years, much less ten, if he’s playing 70 games a year, playing his crazy Spiderman style. I don’t think it’s a great idea to burn him out quite yet. Therefore, more games for the other Jonathan.
That would be the reasoning.
