One potential Bernier trade

Jonathan Bernier | Kings


Jonathan Bernier may be the best goalie available this offseason, but the Los Angeles Kings will be asking for a decent amount for the young goalie. The Edmonton Journal's Jim Matheson sees the Tampa Bay Lightning as a good landing spot -- and the Bolts can offer one of their first-rounders (No. 10 or 19) and backup goalie Mathieu Garon. However, with the goalie market shrinking and Cory Schneider off the market, a team like the Lightning -- who likely want a young, elite goalie -- don't have many options. So the Kings may be able to squeeze a bit more out of this deal.

Lebrun said the Kings will be overwhelmed with interest from TB and hinted they could name their price.
Why on earth would the Lightning give up anything for Bernier prior to seeing what happens with Josh Harding? And after the Lightning, it's very thin with teams looking for goaltenders.
