The other problem is, he might become a problem in the room because he wants out. Hopefully Dean gets him out of the organization soon and has another backup coming back if nobody in the farm system is ready to step up.
It's an unfortunate situation, Bernier seems like a great guy who is always smiling.
I disagree that he will tune out. If anything, Bernier will be more focused when he is in. He knows playing better is in his best interest. Better play=more value=quicker trade.
The room is way too tight for Bernier to disrupt things, and I highly doubt he would do something like that. I think there is a great amount of camaraderie and respect in that room, and it's very unlikely any player on that team would cause problems. Strength of character is huge with DL's draft picks and with the players brought in.
For sure his teammates understand the situation he is in and are supportive.
