If I was Bernier, I would have my agent call DL and tell him I would rather stay in LA as the backup than go to Toronto. LA has a better team and a better shot of winning. Quick was injured last season, whats to say it doesn't happen again. Bernier could be in a familiar spot in Toronto, stuck as a backup. At least going to LA gives him a much better shot at getting his name on another cup. The Kings would keep Bernier if he was comfortable being a backup. Ultimately, the Kings are trying to do JB a solid, and put him somewhere that he can be successful and in return the Kings get something valuable and won't have to play against him once a month. If he isn't going to be the de facto number 1, I dont think Bernier or the Kings are in any urgency to get a trade done.
