Its really not that hard to understand why Bernier isn't a Flyer today. Giving up #11 for Bernier would have been rediculous
I mentioned it before and probably the most likely reason the deal wasnt done. If LA could of had control over Read beyond next season they might have pulled the trigger. They were not going to deal a impending UFA after next season for a young goalie straight up.
i would still look for Read to get dealt this summer.
