Matt Read for Jonathan Bernier

Dennis Bernstein ‏@DennisTFP 8 Jun

@ericsuperfan think Bryzgalov gets bought out and Bernier for Matt Read is made. Was discussed at deadline as I hear.

@DrDanStantz Bernier and Read were principals in deal, could be expanded but was straight swap as I heard.

Bernstein is an LA-based writer, so even though he writes for The Fourth Period -- a site that positions themselves as a rumor aggregator -- there's probably at least some credence to the rumor that Matt Read could be traded for Jonathan Bernier. Add Bob McKenzie's report from Saturday night about "expecting" the Flyers to buyout Bryzgalov, and well, yes, that does smell like smoke.

Combined with McKenzie saying he thought Bryzgalov would get bought out despite the Flyers' assurances he wouldn't, things are starting to make sense.
