Purcell's value is a hell of a lot higher than Moore's first of all. Secondly, Bishop is considered by just about everyone in the business to be NHL ready, he just happens to be stuck behind one of the best goaltending tandems in the NHL. He was great in the preseason and outperformed both Halak and Elliott as someone mentioned in the other thread, and he has shown nothing but continued improvement since turning pro. Bishop would also be an RFA at season's end, meaning we could then either sign him to a cheap deal or shop him around if he doesn't fit into our plans.

I could see Yzerman wanting a conditional pick, but Moore for Bishop straight up seems like a risk well worth taking imo.
