Odd line of thought. Andy Moog was Fuhr's backup, I guess he could go as a secondary piece in a trade too huh?

You trade a guy based on his value, not on his position on the team. Bernier is a backup here, but that doesn't mean Columbus wouldn't value him as more than that and you shouldn't assess his value as such.
