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.
The Kings had Garon & LaBarbera. Goaltending was a very pressing need.
