When Anisimov is ready, Drury will move to wing. If Bernier is on the other side then we've got no room for anyone else, even once Naslund is gone. Zherdev, Bernier, Dawes and Drury would occupy the top 4 wings, leaving 2 spots for players like Byers, Korp, Moore, Grachev, Stepan, Callahan, Prucha and Cherepanov in the coming years.

We are gonna have a log jam of players as it is. We don't need to keep adding more young guys that are going to block our prospects. And you say Bernier is better than Korp. Maybe he is. But if he's all that good, why is he on his 3rd team in less than a year?

Again I say, just because you can do something doesn't mean you should. We have more than enough young talent. We don't need Bernier.
