Imo your going to loose a frist for whoever you end up with. If it were me i would take a reimer /Bernier duo over a Loungo/reimer or scrivens Its alot cheaper and easier to walk away from bernier should he not work out. You get him as a rfa for proberly 3 years. With the extra space you can pursue the getlaf perry dream or whatever free agent u want. I don't see the flames giving up kipper as they think there a playoff team and not ready to rebuild. Again bernier hasnt had a shot at playing full time comparing there numbers is comparing apples to oranges. Regular work would have bernier putting up better numbers.

I ll agree with la looking at florida as a team to trade with. They have a ton of minor league talent so giving up there 1st may not be as big of a deal as the leafs. As for tradeing him to van or edmonton i think they dont want him in the conference at all so deal with them would have to be massive overpayments as i ve previously stated. Where i think bernier may go is philly as the kings and flyers have dealt with each each alot. This of course would only happen if the flyers buy out Ilya Bryzgalov.
