Yes, Bernier will let in terrible goals sometimes (looking at you there Harold) but thats the tradeoff you get for paying your goalie $3 mil/year.

I like the trade a lot. Plus it actually brings a real Penguins player BACK to the Pens lol, never thought i'd see that. Both GMs get exactly what they want.
Exactly why I traded Lindback. Both he and Helenius piss me off on occasion with bad goals, but Helenius makes $3.1mil less. I would rather allocate that money into a top 4 defenseman instead of a very slight upgrade in goal.
