As for the Sharks, I just don't see the Leafs willing to pay a substantial enough premium to get one of their centres, unless the Sharks actively decide they want to get rid of one.
The problem with a guy like Pavelski, is that you're not going to get him right now for MacArthur, Kadri, and a 3rd round pick. He's going to cost you a Kulemin, Lupul, or some other asset of substantial importance. If you do the deal for Pavelski, you've created another hole in your lineup, but haven't really filled one in the process. Pavelski's a good centre, no doubt, but he's not a #1... so even if you trade for him, you're still going to be looking for an upgrade in the middle, and as well as having to replace whoever you trade for him.
How do you figure that a) Bernier's upside is much larger than Reimer's, and b) Reimer isn't guaranteed to be a legitimate starter while Bernier is? considering that one of them is a #1 goalie at this point in time, and the other isn't.
Doesnt Pavelski play W now anyway? Hes not even a C anymore.
