Bernier Traded to Toronto
2nd round pick (Toronto’s choice in 2014-15)
and CASH?????? ($492,500)
Hextall talks about the deal, “It was ongoing for months”
Frattin carries a $925,000 cap hit and is a RFA after next season
I’m guessing Tim Lie-Weekly had NOTHING to do with this deal… at all [/sarcasm]
IMO Toronto wins this deal (for now) – a possible franchise goaltender for a 2nd/3rd line winger, a back-up goaltender and basically a 3rd round pick.
Would have preferred a 1st round pick but at least the Kings finally give Bernier a shot
Would have also preferred LW Zucker from Minnesota but I’m to understand they wouldn’t have traded him straight up for Bernier.
Frattin is also primarily a RW who can PLAY LW. We’ll see.
