Canucks Trade for Steve Bernier (and Sign Mark Cullen)

via the Vancouver Canucks:

Vancouver Canucks General Manager Mike Gillis announced today that the club has acquired right wing, Steve Bernier from the Buffalo Sabres in exchange for a second round Draft pick in 2010 and third round pick (Los Angeles’ selection) in 2009.

“Steve Bernier is a highly regarded young player who’s enjoyed success early in his career,” said Gillis. “With his right-handed shot he will be a great addition to our top six forward group and an asset to our power play.”

Thanks to nrbreitkreuz for the tip.

Update July 8th— Blues offer sheet on Bernier.

And apparently Mr. Bernier is ever-so-trustworthy, as well.  Over at Sabretooth’s House they consider this question:

You’re drunk and stranded in downtown Buffalo and your friends have deserted you. You only have enough battery to call one of these people. Whom do you trust to not take advantage of you in your drunken state, but secretly hope that they will?

Steve Bernier
Pat Kaleta
Mike Ryan
Nathan Paetsch

Anne’s personal choice was Bernier.

So there you go. A man of character (good for the team), hotness (good for the puck bunnies) and he can score a few goals (good for everyone who has to watch a Canucks game next year). 

So… everyone wins.  Except TSN, who posted this gem (thanks to a KK member for sending this screenshot!):
