What do you guys think?
A bit of old news. However, I would rather not trade Frattin for Bernier, as I think Reimer has just as much potential. Frattin has proven to be a solid 3rd liner, with all signs pointing to him cracking the top 6 soon. Bernier may never develop into the #1 goalie we need. I've entertained the idea that Burke is using this Bernier deal as smoke and mirrors for Luongo, and thats what I would rather.
Veteran that can stop gap Reimers development time is exactly what we need.
Thats just my opinion though, as I still feel the pain of Toskala and Raycroft.
