My Take on the Blues Signing Bernier


The Blues signed RFA forward Steve Bernier to a one-year, $2.5 million contract today. The Vancouver Canucks have seven days to match the offer, or they will receive the Blues' second round draft pick in next year's draft as compensation.

If the Canucks don't match the offer, I think it's a huge boost in the youth movement for the Blues. Bernier has a ton of potential, and was given up on way too early by San Jose before he could fully develop. He has the potential to be a 20-goal scorer, and is very aggressive and physical. Overall, a great move by the Blues to force the Canucks' hand and see if they can pry Bernier away.


UPDATE:
So much for that. The Canucks matched the offer sheet.
