(Obviously, acquiring Bernier would be in a separate move, as LAK already has Quick and, thus, no need for Miller.) I think Bernier's price will be around what Lindback cost (two 2nd's + 3rd) and Regier will use assets acquired in deals for Leo and Regehr and (possibly) Miller to make it work.
There's a window open for Regier to move Miller because he can sell it that Miller hasn't put up elite numbers in a few years, and there's not a goaltender in the system right now that is more likely than not going to be a bona fide #1 starter in the NHL. If he's going to move Miller, I hope he does it pre-deadline so that he doesn't get just hot enough to ruin our draft position over the last month.
if you are trolling me... it's the best "long troll" ever.
