If the Kings were willing to take just the 10th for Bernier, basically Yzerman would have the option of "drafting" a 1st-round talent goaltender (Bernier went 11th in his draft year), and as a bonus he gets to skip the six years of development and anti-bust insurance that the Kings have already paid.
Or are you saying that under no circumstances would you ever draft a goaltender with a #10 pick?
Bingo. I wouldn't draft a goaltender in the first round ever let alone that high. Unless we are talking about the Sidney Crosby of goaltenders, the most sure fire hall of famer that could be drafted.
And to the people who are saying Bernier has playoff experience. Yes he has the same playoff experience as the people who paid for the tickets sitting next to him watching the entire game have. Goodie.
