Because having a franchise goalie is worth that price and more. Markstrom has potential, but it is far from guaranteed that he becomes the stud goalie we need. Bernier has just as much or more potential and has very good numbers in the NHL. Having the two of them almost guarantees we would end up with a stud goalie for the next 10+ years. And if they both becomes studs then we trade one away. Im not an expert on the business and politics of the NHL, my point is just that having two young potential all star goalies would be the best case scenario. But if the business/contract realities prevent it, then so be it.
