This is a scenario that only benefits the Oilers- a situation where a player is worth more to their team and it wouldn't make sense to overpay to acquire him.

I'm sure you wouldn't want a 2nd or even a 1st for a lot of your roster players not on your top line
We could go round and round on who's better but I'd say they're pretty close, which ever way it leans. He's most definitely not what anyone outside of Toronto should call a clear & significant upgrade.

The OP had to think that Reimer might be a target to fit (A) because of Bernier. If he could be had for a low cost for the same reasons Bernier was brought in for Toronto, then great. But he can't. And he's nowhere near a sure enough bet to pay a premium for. So not a good fit.
