For the record, I've never been on the Bernier bandwagon. I'm a Quick guy for obvious reasons. With that said, I recognize Bernier for what he is.... a cool headed, athletic, young goalie who does the little things right. Patrick Roy called him the best goalie prospect in the world and if he had more opportunity I have no doubt in my mind he'd show everyone his immense ability.

That is ridiculous. It sounds like you are trying to say LA goes from the 2nd best defense in the league to mediocre/poor when Bernier starts. That's just not reasonable, especially to further suggest the only manipulating variable has nothing to do with it (however it's a crock of ****, so i don't think he does). Bernier by the way started 8 games against non playoff teams and 5 against playoff teams, so he also got easier starts to boot.

As it's been stated, center is LA's strongest position. They wouldn't deal for Gagner to play him as a bottom 6 C where he would definitely fail.

That being said, contrary to most comments here I don't think the value is far off. They both have high draft pedigree and have shown a decent ability at the NHL level. A good back up with starting potential for an average #2C is pretty close.
