This is the best goaltending situation that Ottawa has ever had IMO. Our three goalies are 5 yrs apart & all three are playing like they could be & should be the #1 goalie. Anderson won the #1 job based on how well he played down the stretch last yr almost to a playoff spot. Lehner was the MVP in the Bingo Sens Calder Cup Championship run. And Bishop is considered to be the best young goalie not in the NHL, how could it be better than this & at $650K is a great cap hit.

Murray has given Bishop a one way contract for next season so it's likely he will be the backup & fight Anderson for the #1 job. Lehner may be back in Bingo next season, I hope so, he is only one injury or trade away from playing in the NHL very, very soon. He has played three great games this yr in the NHL & three victories & IMO seems very close to being NHL ready. Lehner just oozes confidence & IMO seems to give his team confidence, they play so much better with him in nets. Next yr will be a very interesting for this franchise & for the golatending. Auld is definately gone at yr's end.
