There is also another side to this argument- you have to pay twice (both financially and team deppth wise) to bring Bernier here. Bryz must be paid, Bernier must be paid and you need to gut the team to pry Bernier from LA. Once rumors of Bryz's buyout hit the news Bernier's asking price will go up exponentially.
