Beezer: I don't like the Leafs trade

Beezer likes Frattin's scoring touch and feels he could make the Leafs regret the Jonathan Bernier trade (Dave Abel, Toronto Sun)

Everyone seems to be tossing rose petals at Maple Leafs general manager Dave Nonis for the trade he made on the weekend.

You know the one: Bringing in Jonathan Bernier — the young Los Angeles Kings backup goaltender — for winger Matt Frattin, backup goalie Ben Scrivens and a second-round draft pick.

Now I’m not prepared to be a skunk at a garden party here, but I do think that Frattin has a ton of upside and will become a front-line forward in the NHL. He showed quick hands and a real scorer’s touch around the net before being waylaid by a knee injury and was never the same after getting back into the lineup.
