The point here is I believe Bernier + can warrant Connolly +. The + from tampa being lower than the + from LA

It wasn't Eklund and it wasn't even Lombardi himself who stated that value, really.

Just prior to this year's trade deadline, Bob McKenzie was on Toronto 1050 taking calls and a Leafs fan asked him if Jonathan Bernier could be acquired for Carl Gunnarsson and a mid round pick. His response was that it was highly unlikely given that Lombardi had recently turned down a package of a 1st round pick and a top prospect.

That's about when the perception of Bernier's trade value being around where it is was set for a lot of Kings fans.
