Steve Bernier and the Ambiguously Swede Duo

Remember Steve Bernier? It hasn't been that long, has it, Teal Town? Our underappreciated, arguably underperforming 23-year old French Canadian forward was dealt to Buffalo this February (I was at Stevie's last game in teal, @ Mellon Arena in Pittsburgh), in exchange for Brian Campbell (remember him?). Neither locale was able to hang on to their new acquisitions for long, as Campbell signed with Chicago for beaucoup bucks, while Bernier, despite a memorable 2-goals-in-2-shots (plus an assist) debut for the Sabres, has gone to Vancouver for the 2008-09 season...

...Where his linemates will be none other than Daniel and Henrik Sedin.

Daniel Sedin - Henrik Sedin - Steve Bernier. I get chills just thinking about it... Bernier should be a household name (well, in Vancouver) by the All-Star break.
