If that's all it took to get Bishop you've gotta wonder why Steve Yzerman or Brian Burke didn't pick up Bishop.

I believe he's a UFA, no? If so, he could just be an insurance policy for the remainder of the season then test the market? Maybe TO or TB will be interested then if he's not signed prior to the summer.

Bishop signed a one year extension with the sens right after the trade was made, so he'll be in ottawa again next year, auld will be lookign for a new job after this stint in ottawa, but now ottawa has bishop, anderson and lehner, they have goaltending for quite a long time now, perhaps this is a start to sending lehner somewhere in the future?

i would only say that happens if they can get bishop signed long term, otherwise theyll want to keep lehner

but what a steal for ottawa, the number one ranked goaltender in the AHL for a second round pick in 2013, st louis could have at least asked for a first rounder? i mean you look at ottawa, lehner was ranked fifth in AHL goaltending, so they had a prospect, but then u turn to tampa bay, and they dont have any goaltending prospects, and even new jersey could have been a nice place to land bishop, after brodeur retires they will need a new starter and there may not be many in the market,

thoughts??

Ah, thanks for that. I didn't realize they'd inked him to a new deal. Def seems like a good trade for them!

This deal also amazes me!! Bishop is a TOP goalie prospect and with so many teams in need of goaltending I can't believe he went for so little?? Tampa, New Jersey.....even Toronto or Philly....could use a quality goalie prospect at such a small cost. Ottawa's need for a goalie was far less. Great steal for them
