He's a free agent (unrestricted?) at the end of the season, right?
i'd think berard is a RFA (26 years old, right?)...unless the hawks aren't offering him a qualifier. and if they don't plan on that, i'd assume he'll be traded. i personally believe he's young enough to keep for this thing wirtz calls the rebuilding process
I believe the Hawks have an option on him for next year. If they deal him they should get a good return, great offensive D man for the PP is important in the playoffs. But Pully is our GM, so that means we'd get a 3rd rounder, so I hope we keep him.
