Much higher, it seems.
Sources say the Toronto Maple Leafs have significantly anted up the price to pry Bernier from the Kings and this is yet another reason why the Flyers can’t make a final decision on whether to file a compliance buyout on goalie Ilya Bryzgalov.
The Leafs, New York Islanders, Florida Panthers, Minnesota Wild and now the New Jersey Devils reportedly are in the bidding, but sources say Toronto might be offering more than others are willing to pay.
“We’re not really talking,” said one Flyers source, which likely means general manager Paul Holmgren can’t match what others are offering Kings GM Dean Lombardi for a guy many feel could have been a No. 1 starter were it not for how well Jonathan Quick has performed.
For the Panacio isn't reliable crowd.....
He is the beat guy for the Fliers, you should get another one if he isn't any good.
But based on the article does that mean that you guys are not only in on Bernier but able to looking to match the supposed TO offers? I mean, are you saying "there's a chance?"
Here's a working link to the article you posted:
I'm wondering if the supposed package that the Leafs may be offering is their 1st round selection and a good young player/prospect. If that is the case, then I'm guessing Lombardi takes that offer. Although I'm not anticipating a trade until the Cup Finals are over and decided. Also, the draft is in 10 days and for the first time since 2005, the draft will be completed in one day.
