GP, What Buffalo did with Bernier after the fact is completely irrelivant. They could've traded every asset they got for a bag of magic beans immediately after aquiring them, and it wouldn't change the fact that the Sabres got Steve Bernier and a 1st for Brian Campbell.

The market has pretty much been set for high end rental players in the last few years:

Brian Campbell - Bernier, 1st
Ryan Smyth - Nilsson, O'Marra, 1st
Marian Hossa (with Dupuis) - Esposito, Armstrong, Christensen, 1st
Adam Foote - 1st, 4th

I'd expect Bouwmeester to bring in a return somehwere in between what Brian Campbell and Marian Hossa got for their teams. Buffalo may have even done a little better given that Bernier had achieved more in the NHL than Espo and Christensen, and had a higher upside than Armstrong (though not as good an overall package, but Campbell is no Hossa either).
