Assuming they have this Quick deal done and over with by July 1, in looking at the goalie market, there are a few teams that could use a starter or have room to acquire a young goalie to groom as their starter.

Toronto and Edmonton are two clubs that may look to upgrade in net. New Jersey could look to add someone to eventually become the successor to Brodeur. If Calgary moves Kiprusoff, they'll be in need of a goaltender for the future. I don't view Craig Anderson as a permanent solution in Ottawa (liken him to Patrick Lalime) and could see the Senators upgrading in net at some point.

If the Kings do end up moving Bernier this summer, I don't think it will be to acquire immediate help but to replenish the reserve list with an area of need, or draft picks. Maybe Paajarvi for Bernier? He can dominate in the AHL for a season or so and possibly be ready to graduate to the NHL and contribute as a top six forward a couple of years from now.
