Yep, if you're going to trade draft picks this is precisely the type of deal you do it in.

Love it. Hopefully MG can aquire some picks with some deals in the future, but adding skilled young players is always a good thing.

I dunno how I feel about this one. Sure Bernier's young and has tons of potential, but he has been super inconsistent early in his career. And with things looking the way they are, that second could turn out to be a VERY high pick. Here's to hoping.

Edit: feels better that it's a 2010 second rounder.

And oh snap, Taylor Pyatt has some competition for the title of "pretty boy" on the Canucks.

The world is coming dow... oh wait, things can happen after 3 days of free agency..

Great deal. Young guy for a 2nd in 2 years, and a 3rd next. Tonnes of time to make up the 2nd and for a young guy its worth it... get him training!

as i posted on the main board, i am speculating that Gillis informed Regier of a pending RFA offer sheet in the 2nd round range and Regier instead opted for the 2nd and 3rd as a compromise.

anyone share this speculation?

I agree i should have added that (and did on another board!). Get him signed to a longer term deal and you can suck up the loss of picks.

All I know is Bernier is a 6'2", 225 lb, right handed shot, 23 year old former first round pick that has hands and talent. At the very least he is a big freaking target for the twins to bounce pucks off of.

I dunno about this, but the fact we still have our 09 2nd rounder means we can still make an offer in the 2nd round range this summer.

It sure is, and he said it after he was questioned about an play where he had a clear shot at an empty net and dumped the puck in instead.

That's a very good point. The Canucks likely added the third so that they could ensure they got the player they wanted. It also allows them to keep their second round pick in 2009 and they still have their own third round pick in 2009 (they gave up LA's pick in 2009) meaning they still have their own 1st, 2nd, 3rd.

So does Gillis not want to give up next years 2nd because we could bomb....or is he looking at another RFA?

Interesting that the 2nd rounder is in 2010, still leaves the door open for an offersheet.

Nice... I really like Bernier, size speed and skill.

Great move by Gillis and the boys... maybe the Lion is waking up?

Keep em' coming Mike!

I like the Buffalo franchise, so this isn't meant to rub it in their faces at all, but they are super pissed about this deal.

It's a good addition but this isn't the magical fix that is going to make the team competitive. Unless Sundin signs here, the only real options we're looking at for the team being upgraded is through trades. And you have to give up assets to do that, something Vancouver does not have a whole lot of.

Still it's nice to see something positive finally.

Its also LA's 3rd from the Cloutier deal that was sent the other way apparently.. so if we still have our 3rd (?) that still leaves pretty much any offer sheet a possibility.

Seriously, I am not too immature all the time, but that cracks me up everytime I see it. Seriously, one of the funniest quotes I have seen. That's all I say now when I play hockey or see it on TV.


Ah, good times.

Now if Gillis can sign Demitra and find another big RW for the 2nd line, we're in business.

Sedin - Sedin - Bernier
Raymond - Demitra -???

Nah, I think it's more likely that Buffalo was just having trouble signing him.

Not everything revolves around an offer sheet.
