Bernier has some upside and helps provide some scoring on the PP and 3rd line..

Like some people said, nice to get this cleaned up quick and avoid the hassle of the RFA status and to deal with other issues with more awareness of your cap position.

Would like to try Hodgson with Raymond and Bernier next year.

Hopefully the Sedin issue gets dealt with with equal dispatch.

I think that could be an interesting line to start Hodgson out with, play them as the 3rd. With Raymonds newfound defensive awareness, Berniers physical play it could be a solid starter. They are all reasonably young, could be a very nice fit.
