If sticking by the mantra of getting the best possible return, Lombardi will find a way to fit one of those 'big name' young guys into the lineup, we've been hearing how great a GM he is and how he'll get it done. His job is to improve the team first and foremost and obtaining any of those names for Bernier would be doing just that.
Yes I am one of the more vocal of the people saying he would match a 2nd compensation offer sheet. Dean was very vocal on the subject of offer sheets. I belive it was when drew was rfa he stated he would match any sheets and would return the favour. The concern is he isnt getting a fair return on his value. Also hes stated moving him would have to make sence long term for the kings. Adding salary of a scheen or Voracek doesnt make any sence long term. They dont play lw the postion of need for the kings. We have at rw willliams and carter no way there spending 4 million on a 3rd line player. Yes they would be good players just dont make sence for the kings to try and other for a want not a need doesnt make sence. Adding the a pick makes alot more finacial sence. Coultier is at least a left shot and could in theory play lw. Dean isnt adding salary in this trade wait and see
