Perhaps, but you can't just give the spot to Bernier. You have to make him earn it by elevating his game and outplaying Ersberg and/or Quick, thus forcing Lombardi to make a trade to make room for him. It's very unlikely, IMO, that Ersberg finishes this extension with the Kings (just like LaBarbera didn't finish his). Once Bernier is ready (whether it's next season or the season after), he'll push out either Ersberg or Quick just like how Quick pushed out LaBarbera. It's the circle of life goaltending.
