07:20 AM ET 06.20 | Sitting behind one of the best goaltenders in the world and Conn Smythe winner Jonathan Quick, the other Jonathan -- Jonathan Bernier -- sets up as a trade chip for the Kings. Five teams we believe are in the mix. [Bob McKenzie alluded] to three of them on Tuesday; the Maple Leafs, Islanders and Flyers, but today we also learned that the Stars and Panthers are also in the mix. I spoke with Bernier today and he didn't know a whole lot about what's going on on the trade front but he said he's excited. General manager Dean Lombardi promised him at his exit meeting that he would do everything that he can to give him a shot to go and be a number one goalie elsewhere and that's what Bernier wants.

The other 4 make some sense, but I can guarantee TOR will not be a playa for Bernier

And after being exposed last night, CHI will likely be looking to replace Corey "I borrowed my glove from Reimer" Crawford. I would add them to the list, unless that make a run at Luongo

I don't see a need in Toronto, either

I am no NYI fan, but I like what they are building. Bernier would be a big step forward for them. For Bernier's sake, I hope he does not end up with one of the other teams listed. Especially PHI

I'd love stability in goal for the NYI. This is exactly the type of guy they could use too.

Stars just resigned Nilstrop to a two-way... and Lehtonen could use a push.


I'd be OK with this.

Cut Crawford some slack BGD. I think admirable and even courageous to see somebody with a left arm amputation become an NHL goalie.

Leafs don't need him, Phi has nothing to trade and no cap, panthers are better off signing a Vet and letting Markstrom develop (Follow the NYI's lead and keep your young F/D) I dont think the Stars have enough (I could be wrong).

I think the Isles are the only logical spot. Hopefully they dont bid against themselves and give up too much. The Kings probably know this and are trying to drum up fake competition.

Agree. Islanders seem to make the most sense.

WTF was that last night?

I thought I was watching the Flyers/Pens series all over again. If Chi-town wants to actually win this thing, coach might want to remind them to play some defense, and remind Crawford it is okay to move that arm. He played like he was 80-years old.

The tweets last night on his left glove were damn near as entertaining as the game...

Hey some 80 year-olds play darn good. See Marty B.

The whats?

What happened to the Lummox? 2 assists and still -3?

I saw at least 2 icings given up due to his lead feet. And he tried a couple single axels that led to falls.

Only if Crawford gets injured...and I'm not talking sunburn from the goal light!

Stability for the Isles anywhere is nice to see...like what they're putting together.
