Proving once again what an idiot Barry Melrose is.

I still don't get how this is a great trade for Ottawa.

Bishop is a good prospect but Ottawa could have signed him in the off-season for nothing. Now he sits in the AHL. They already have their future goalie in Lehner.

Blues get a free second-round pick.

They have their future starting goalie in Lehner, but hes still 2-3 years away from being a full-time starter and they probably don't want him riding the pine for 60 games with Anderson starting so they picked up bishop to back up Anderson till Lehners ready and then probably back up Lehner/ or 1 and 1a situation like the blues have currently. Anderson has another 2 years on his contract, I believe.

I think you also have to consider that there was a good chance that Ottawa wasn't the only team interested in Bishop, so there in no guaranty that they could have just waited for July 1st to come around. Lehner isn't ready for the NHL after the injury to Craig Anderson they had a need for a goaltender. Ottawa is also pushing to make the playoffs this season.

That being said I was also somewhat surprised that we got a 2nd in return but thinking about it more and more it makes sense.

I understand why they traded for him. I don't understand how we were able to get a second round pick for him.

For the desktop I got the Haupauge Colossus board from Amazon for $141. http://www.amazon.com/Hauppauge-Colo...0820652&sr=1-2

It comes with ArcSoft Showbiz software so you can edit the videos if you need to. Add text, chop out chunks you don't need, transitions etc. The card was easy to install with CD software that also has WinTV7 so you can watch Internet TV and control your cable box with an IR blaster kit that is also included.

The card comes with cables to hook to your Xbox or STB (Set Top Box), DTV sat box in my case, to your Colossus card in your desktop.

Open the Showbiz software and mash the capture button and you're recording in HD. It even has a button to publish the video to your YouTube acccount. Slicker then deer guts on a door knob.

Do I need to purchase HD tv first in order to retrieve HD?

I use charter and have a set top digital box. Looking for which tuner I need so I can hook up and record as well. I was looking at colossus but trying to teach myself everything via internet and forums.

Fred Murtz 03-03-2012 08:52 PM

No HD TV needed, you're feeding from your STB to the video capture card. The STB does have to be HD. YOu actually don't need a TV if you want to just view the video on your puter.

Someone on the main NHL forum here mentioned running a $5 fireware cable to a $10 fireware card in puter and then using software there to do capture and editing. GOnna have to explore that too as a poor man's way to do it. The thread there is called "So you wanna record hockey video" if you want to follow along.

So I would have to pay more for the STB to be HD. Gotcha! Not going to happen... I hate charter as it is and dont want to give them more money. Just looking at ways to start recording myself.. I got a new sweet desktop built itching to be filled up and utilized to potential!

Everyone that is surprised that we got a 2nd round pick is looking at this all wrong. He is definitely worth a 2nd pick.

First off, his original value was a 3rd round pick (that's where we drafted him). Now, he has obviously developed well and is ready for NHL action. That's definitely worth a 2nd round pick that may or may not pan out. That much is obvious.

But of course you ask "well why didn't they just wait to sign him in the offseason?" The fact of the matter is everybody knew he would be traded and signed before the offseason. The Blues knew they were going to trade his rights and I'm sure it was well known that Bishop would sign anywhere he was traded as long as he was given a one way contract. So if you wanted Bishop, you were gonna have to trade for him.

Exactly. It does make sense. He was either going to be traded at the deadline or at the draft, but there was absolutely no reason to just let him walk a free agent. I actually figured he would be traded before the deadline, but I think this shows that they had a ton of teams interested in him and had their sights set on that 2nd round pick. I think it was a very fair trade for both sides and I wish him the best.
