The Leafs would ideally be served with a more experienced tandem goalie. Of course, you don't dismiss a guy with Bernier's potential instantly, but the deal has to make sense.
That being said, I asked this question pre-lockout when the idea of trading Bernier surfaced... what do the Kings
hope to accomplish in doing so? There's not a ton of room up front, and they've got a couple of young defencemen at the bottom of their lineup who they're obviously looking to develop.
As i said above i think with your team getting more defensive in there approach bernier would be a good addiction to your team. if he doesnt work out in a year or two hes easier to get rid of worse case senerio then a more expensive goalie like loungo.
The kings are looking for a young top 6 winger prefer lw as we have penner and gagne being free agents at the end of the season if theres a season that is. They also need a 1st round pick in the upcoming draft as columbus has ours in the carter trade. There is also a need by some saying we need a young defensive minded defenseman that hits to replace suderi and mitchell in a few years. Personally i dont see it we have more then enuff in the system. We would also need a backup goalie to replace bernier but not we can get that in a seprate deal.
