Goaltanding was not a pressing need when Bernier was drafted (defense was, and a scoring RW [sound familiar?]).
Now he's been traded so DL has essentially swapped a #11 for a #99 + 2nd rd pick. Not really improving over the last 6 - 7 years.
You think the Kings would have learned with the Jamie Storr experiment about using a high draft pick on a goalie. Not. worth. the. risk.
Wait a second....I think everyone is forgetting that Jonathan Quick basically came out of nowhere, nobody saw that guy becoming the Kings #1 goaltender and future Conn Smythe winner. Quick was doing everything that Bernier has been predicted to do....so had it not been for Quick, we'd probably have Bernier as our #1 and we'd all be pretty happy about it.
