Not really. Bernier, in fact, was an 11th overall selection and has been groomed for over six years. If, as an organization, one truly believes he is the real deal #1 you've needed, and Bryz needs to be bought out for various reasons (recapture, cap hit, etc), and your team is needing some serious retooling: Nothing wrong with sacrificing the 1st round pick.

Possible true #1 (if the team buys into that)
Shave off six years of grooming him
Eliminate a major cap fubar

Loss of #11 pick (and that is ALL it is at this point-- the pick has a gamble range of bust to superstar)

Keep in mind: There are ways to trade back into the 1st round.
