I have 2 words Ryan Bach
He needed to be traded.
But we got FLEECED in the deal. A starting caliber goalie, for a backup goalie and a below average forward that hasn't done a damn thing all year? Ridiculous.
First 3 responses nailed it.
Bernier is good, but he's gone. I don't miss him. IN fact, I don't think he will amount to a lot any way. Let's see where we are 5 years down the road. Can't compare a goalie in his first real year as a starter when teams haven't gotten the book on him yet vs a guy coming off back surgery about a year ago and now with a possible groin tear.
And here it is! Yes!!!
Don't get it, we dumped a lot of salary and Scrivens looks just as good as Bernier in the SO.
The lesson should be, never draft a goalie in the first two rounds. That's why I was pissed off when Dean took a goalie prospect again (Gibson) while a good goalie like Bernier was still 2nd best after being drafted years ago.
It takes ages before they are ready and than you wont get anything for them in a trade.
