I was thinking this exactly. What kind of message does this send to other player on the team. I think that a deal around bernier/voynov and isn't too far from jj/bernier. Bernier/VV and a 1st + considering this year's draft class might just do it.

Pulling the trigger might depend on the trust that dean has in the farm and scouting system b/c that is a big contract. JQ still need to be signed and that will be b/w 6/7 million I'm guessing.

Lombardi once said that it takes tome to establish a reliable scouting system and if ours is now established and institutionalized (for lack of better word) then we can pull the trigger and have a nice revolving door of quality young guys coming out of the minors to fill roll positions rather than overpaying for guys like still, zeus , and defensemen.
Then we can afford nash's contract and pay JQ.
