Lou Lamoriello is not the type of GM to give a **** if he's hosting the draft or not. He's going to do what he thinks is best for his team and I think he has to realize that having a 40 year old goalie and a 36 year old one will not work. Bring in Bernier now, let him learn from Marty, and have him carry the load the following year while Marty rides the bench. A deal of Bernier for NJ 1st + Hedberg would be great IMO. Could add on either side with smaller stuff but to get a first and a very good backup works just fine for me. It would also give Jones probably the two years remaining on Hedberg's new deal to continue to grow in the A and then after he can make the jump to backing up Quickers.
