6th Rounder in 2010 for Fuku?

Hmm...little strange, ee is a great backup. It's a good role for him and you can't ask quick or to fill that role at the moment. Two years isn't too long. I guess the non-trade is a littlesurprising, but he's drama free and pretty solid. Ok.

Good thing Ersberg is staying. He's a more than capable back-up.

His value for the Kings is more than what you would get in return for him in a trade.

Glad they re-signed Ersberg. Smart move. He's only going to get better. Wonder if they got a good deal...

Perhaps, but you can't just give the spot to Bernier. You have to make him earn it by elevating his game and outplaying Ersberg and/or Quick, thus forcing Lombardi to make a trade to make room for him. It's very unlikely, IMO, that Ersberg finishes this extension with the Kings (just like LaBarbera didn't finish his). Once Bernier is ready (whether it's next season or the season after), he'll push out either Ersberg or Quick just like how Quick pushed out LaBarbera. It's the circle of life goaltending.

I was very much under the impression Bernier must earn a spot on the Kings, however, he can be brought up to get some time under his belt. The Kings, so far, have not done this for him. He needs time up in LA. Last season was a terrible time for him to get some experience, primarily because it was the very beginning of the season, and our defense sucked.

The point is moot now that we signed EE, but I was hoping the Kings would save additional funds for some goal scorers. Fortunately, though, we signed him to a very reasonable contract.

I'm hoping we don't have a "circle" of goaltending. I, like a lot of fans, TM, and DL, hope that one of these kids can grow into a long-term starter, which is why I wanted to see JB with us next season. Ersberg will be no more than a back-up at this point.

He's 21 years old and this is his first professional season.

The only thing he needs to do right now, is fend off Daniel Taylor for the Monarchs job, and lead that team as far as they can go.

Even next year, if need be.

He'll get that time when Ersberg or Quick is injured. Both of those guys aren't going to be healthy all of the time for the next two seasons. That's how Quick got his chance, remember. It's not like the Kings were dying to give Quick playing time; they didn't have much choice, because of injury.

Also, nothing is set in stone. Bernier will be given every opportunity to take a spot with the Kings in training camp, both '09 and '10. I really don't think that there's anything to worry about with regard to opportunity. The only thing to worry about is that he'll get the opportunity and fumble it.
