as weird as i think it is i think this may be some sort of weird ploy to get him and move him type deal. Like when they traded to get our 2nd from Calgary to threat Kessel. So maybe he gets him and packages him for a older but more proven netminder. Like moving Mac and a pick and maybe a little prospect for Bernier and a something, then move Bernier and Franson for someone else.
Maybe there is another deal but the team wants Reimer so he gets Bernier instead to offer.
