This trade makes no sense for Bernier. Jonathan Bernier will be a #1 goalie in this league soon. The question is how good can Bernier be? I like his potential alot and he has played well at all levels. In the NHL he is unproven but he was drafted high as a starter with star expectations. The Kings are doing him an injustice by not letting him play enough. The less he plays the more his value goes down as well.
Eventually he will force a trade if they wait forever and the value of Bernier is not as high as a Varlamov simply because he isnt showcased enough.
No team in the league wants unhappy players in the lockerroom either.

So on to Buffalo.
The Kings trade him to the Sabres for what reason?

He wants to start and get paid alot of money. So trade him to a team that wont make him a starter?
