CBJ wants forwards...and NHL ready ones at that.
So the likelihood of Bernier/Loktionov and a pick would get us CBJs 1st I would venture.
It would suck to see Loktionov go too, but if it lands us Columbus' 1st, I'm all for it. He doesn't fit into the current or foreseeable roster and the 1st "buys" us development time and a potential top 10 pick. Chances are that 1st is off the table though. The best we could likely do is get back ours from the Carter trade. At which point CBJ needs to add.
Edit: To add though, I don't see how Columbus would be a likely destination for Bernier considering they have Mason and Bobrovsky sharing time now. Doesn't make sense to me.
