Doesn't it depend on what the contract is though?

I think Bernier would be a UFA after two more NHL seasons. But if the Kings are offering just 1 year, he's back in the same boat next year, and you know LA won't offer him a huge raise on what he's getting now.

Assuming he doesn't get an RFA offer, he could likely get decent coin to go to Russia for a year, so it's not a big drop off in salary, if any. However in Russia he could be a starter and get playoff starts (if they make the playoffs). Could go a long way to helping prove he's got the means to be a starter.
