The draft pick, unless it was a pretty high one, would seem to be just as big a gamble, if not a bigger gamble than going with Bernier.
I guess my question is, if you would trade Read for a first,
why would you not trade him for Bernier?
I would, just not Read plus 2013 2nd. I said package Read for a 1st but I never said what package. I wouldn't want to include the 2013 2nd either unless it's draft day and someone good was still hanging around. Furthermore I'm not convinced Bernier will ever be more then what he is now considering he is 25. I know goalies are different/take a little longer and he's been blocked in LA so I'll just say it's a feeling.
