Bernier didn't hire Brisson because he wants to come to Philly; he hired Brisson because Brisson just landed $21M over 4 years on a 35+ contract for one of his clients.

If I'm switching agents, I moving to a guy who's getting GMs to overpay for his clients.

exactly. and the Kings should give him that opportunity even if that means Bernier will have a nice career elsewhere. Gms do that all the time.

return is historically low in trades involving goalies.

You give credit to his agent??? i keep reading Holmgren is an idiot. Bernier in Philly seems likely to me.

Seriously. I remember Carchidi saying earlier in the season that Tomas Kaberle would have been a good pick up off of waivers....at 4.25 million. The only writer I even follow anymore is Meltzer. I forgot how bad they were for a while.

You are seriously giving them too much credit. There is no method to their stupidity...they are just plain dopes.

You'd figure that with a large market club, the papers would have better sports writers than the current morons that are around. I'm sure the NHL cringes when they see and read these dopes like Carchidi, Panaccio, Seravalli, etc......

Sports writer. Calgary Sun.
Has to be fake. I mean Homer's not THAT stupid. Right??? Bernier is no where near worth the 11th, let alone adding to it. The absolute most I'd offer is Read, and I would still worry about losing on that deal.

If Homer trades the 11th pick for Bernier, I'm done with this team until that dope is fired and Snider passes away.

This team needs to draft a ****ing defenseman. Not trade it away for a goalie. SMH.

I want to tattoo that to Homer's face, backwards, so he sees it whenever he looks in the mirror.
Unfortunately it all stems from Snider's realization of his own mortality

Just got off the phone with a contact. It's not just Bernier. It's a package around Bernier. It also includes Derek Forbert and another roster player (believed to be Voyonov) for Matt Read, the Flyers 11th overall choice and another roster player (believed to Braydon Coburn, but would require a medical check on his shoulder). Don't blame the messenger for this. It's just what I was informed.

Didn't Voynov just sign for like 4.1 per. If this is true i would definitely do it. I dont think it is true tho. Hopefully for our sake you are right
