The worst part of that contract is that years 4 and 5 are for $7m in real cash, so it's not like that is an attractive contract to a cap floor team.
I have no reason why Nonis didn't front load it. That contract might be the worst deal in the league, as early as next year.
I pretty much agree with you about the contract. I remember Panger (I think) said on the panel earlier this year "...and 20 goals a season is a lot of goals."
However, Bernier adds competition to a crease that needs it now. Worst case scenario is they both play up to their potential, one of them gets traded for a more significant return than Frattin, Scrivens + 2nd, which isn't really that much to begin with. For example, I'd take a 9th overall pick over that package. Bernier simply wasn't getting the games in LA to have a pedigree like Schneider has.
