Bernier will not fetch more than Varlamov. He has worse numbers on a better defensive team and doesnt have the NHL playoff experience Varlamov had.

I do think Bernier will return a 1st but if the Kings keep holding onto him and having him sit on the bench for 65+ games his value won't be going up.

Value for goalies is changing, especially young ones. Ben Bishop had only 13 games of NHL experience with poor numbers and he still got a 2nd round pick in return. He's also older than Bernier. Bernier will return a 1st, or something of similar value.
