I know Florida is looking for a goalie, though Luongo is likely destined there.
Bring up Jones to be the backup, Berube can tend the net in Manchester and Christopher Gibson can play in Ontario. I'd be in favour of bringing Zatkoff back and having him split time with Berube in Manchester.
Jones or Zatkoff aren't ready for the NHL yet. Keep Bernier for another season, play him at least 20 games, keeping Quick fresh for another long playoff run, and than deal him before or at the draft. That gives Jones and/or Zatkoff another year to develop.
Dean doesn't need to deal Bernier this off season.
