And that's fair. What the Hawks (and Hawks fans if they want to play GM) would be willing to pay for Bernier is one thing. What the Kings actually get for Bernier (or rather are willing to accept for him) is another.

The closest thing to an exception this offseason is Luongo, who's a huge gamble for other reasons.

There's always huge uncertainty in this position, but try to use that as an excuse to cheap out and "minmax" on this position, and you get the Flyers of the past decade or the Blues of shortly before that.
For sure, I am so fed up with the current situation that I am very willing to overpay for a legitimate potential solution. Bowman wouldn't though, which is why it is the way it is. I do firmly believe that L.A. will not get this package from anyone, nor do I believe anyone would offer it, maybe close to this but not quite 2 1sts.
