But also hard to imagine a good trading partner at this point. A team willing to trade good pieces for a young, unproven goalie will itself be a young, developing team. In that case, it'll most likely be a prospect swap. Unless a team like CHI or TOR who's willing to gamble.
I imagine it will be done closer to the trade deadline or in the off-season. If at the deadline, I could see him going for a rental, such as Iginla. If in the off-season, could be similar to the Lindback deal, which was mostly for picks.

Honestly, I can't think of any area where the Kings need to add prospects at. We could use an upper level prospect as we don't have a blue chipper, but I doubt anyone will move a blue chipper for Bernier.
