I just cant justify trading Frattin. This is one of those trades that could seriously pay off or seriously bite you in the ass. If Bernier ends up fulfilling his potential and is categorized with the likes of Price, Ward, Quick etc.. then make the trade. The problem lies in Reimer. He is the same goalie as Bernier and could end up holding similar value. Regardless, holding onto two young goalies devalues one of them. Trading a proven guy like Luongo gives you much more leverage then a guy like Bernier or Reimer. Right now Reimer could succeed and leave us with Frattin. Otherwise both Reimer and Bernier could succeed and we would end up having to trade one for a discount when we run out of cap space.

Just talked myself into passing on this deal.
You can't wait for that to happen though. When he turns into Cam Ward, he isn't available anymore. This is the trade to either do or don't at this time and it never comes up again. You don't wait and see on something like this.
