Bernier won't be moved until the offseason unless Lombardi gets absolutely floored by an offer at the deadline. Don't forget that the playoff schedule will be condensed as well. A strong back-up is a team need for everyone.

Bernier has earned and worked hard for the starts he is getting. That's all that matters to Sutter.
I wasn't saying he'll get dealt at the deadline? I'm saying teams don't have a good idea/sample of how good Bernier really is. The past 2/3 season were brief stints and this is by far the best year he's had with the Kings, which obviously drives up his value and will hopefully help the Kings get a solid deal for him in the off-season
