Lucky was right on Bishop; he was in a strange situation in that he became a UFA unless he played something like 11 NHL games (don't quote me on that number). Since STL was battling for top spot and had 2 NHL regulars in place, they would not have to opportunity to play him. The injury to Anderson on OTT gave them the chance to play Bishop down the stretch.

This is the main reason for his relatively low price.
