It's not really that outrageous. $3.1 million only costs you a 2nd rounder, and if you don't like the results, you can let him go after the season assuming it's only a one year deal.
If it works out well though you can extend him, and likely do so at a decent salary since he'll only have one year as a starter.
But $3.1 million for DL is, as you said, an outrageous amount for a backup goalie, which is all he'd be here. DL wouldn't have much choice but to let Bernier go.
It's why I think DL takes the best offer he can get at or before the draft.
We could probably send you Strait, Ullstrom and a 3rd rounder.
