Ever heard of good faith? Players don't always sign offersheets put in front of them and this particular one will leave a bad taste in the mouth of everyone involved.
Boo hoo hoo. Gillis should have signed Bernier earlier then. It's been how many days since the trade? It's his own fault. I'm sure the Blues told Bernier they'd give him first line icetime when they offered the contract as well, and that he'd be a big part of their future.
