As far as Zidlicky, that's not a surprising or unreasonable thing. If someone said to me hey, I've got a job for you you don't want in Denver, I'd tell them to go fvck themselves. The man's made his money. He can probably live off his savings and whatever he'll make coaching here or back in the Czech republic. He shouldn't subject himself to living LA or Winnipeg.
I think that the only reason Zidlicky isn't signed is because he is so obsessed with location and situation (ie. place he wanted to go, that needed a PP righty specialist and would feature him more than most). It makes sense; it's what I would probably do too if I were him. When the Wild wanted to move on, he made sure he had a NTC and would ONLY go to the Devils because the situation was great for him. Then when the Devils were done with him, he had a NTC and would ONLY go to the Red Wings. It's just that he has only a couple of teams and they don't want him I bet because he's too old.
Bernier is still a good hockey player. I would've loved him, especially in comparison to having Tootoo. I really hope it was that he asked for too much because the RW situation is brutal right now and him anchoring the 4th line and being good enough to jump up to top 9 was highly underrated. I hope everything wraps around and he signs back here for under a million.
