Steve Mason is worth more than Bernier. Book it. And why wouldnt you? He's proven more at the same age.
More proven at being terrible.

I'll go back to my original point. Ben Bishop, who had proven less than Bernier, was a year older, and was not regarded as highly by scouts, was traded for a 2nd rounder. I don't think it's ridiculous to expect something like a 1st rounder or a player like Connolly in return, especially if he's packaged with one of LA's defense prospects.
