Bernier and Quick are both under contract for one more season, Quick will be set to become an unrestricted free agent in 2013, while Bernier a restricted free agent, and Quick has established himself as one of the league's top goaltenders with a .934 save percentage and 1.90 goals-against-average in 46 games this season.
Meanwhile, Bernier has been well-regarded and several teams are currently on the lookout for goalie help.
While many believe Bernier has the potential to be a No. 1 goalie, he remains a young goalie with only 43 games of NHL experience. No club is expected to give up a significant return to get him, and the Kings are highly unlikely to accept draft picks for Bernier.
Kings GM Dean Lombardi's No. 1 priority remains to acquire a top-line goal-scorer, but has acknowledged the benefits of having goaltending depth.
"I understand the value of having two strong goalies," he told the Insider.
In 11 games with the Kings this season, Bernier has registered a .900 save percentage and 2.57 goals-against average.
