Bishop got Conacher and a fourth

Considering Bernier is an RFA and has zero starting/playoff experience, his value isn't as high some may think.
Bernier relieved Quick in a game in the Chicago series, after Quick gave up 4 goals and Bernier was stellar, giving up 0 goals in the last 30 minutes. He was totally poised and looked awesome. Only 30 minutes of playoffs, but his 1.88 GAA and 9-3 record was superior to a good margin. Every time I see him play, his poise and technique is about as flawless as I have ever seen. It shows in his performance and results.
